Description:

The Linguistics Department of the University of California, Santa Barbara seeks to hire a linguist specializing in typologically informed field linguistics. The primary consideration date is November 12, 2013. The appointment will be a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level, effective July 1, 2014. Candidates must have expertise in the analysis of linguistic structure, a theoretical specialization in one or more of the subfields of linguistics, experience in language documentation and description, and research experience with one or more languages or language families. We are especially interested in candidates with expertise in technical fieldwork methodologies, work with lesser-known languages, and/or an understanding of the roles of diachrony and contact in shaping language. The ideal candidate will have the potential to link the theoretical implications of his or her research to other subdisciplines in linguistics, and to interact with colleagues and students across disciplinary boundaries at UCSB. The ability to engage with the departmental focus on functional and usage-based approaches to linguistic explanation is essential. Candidates must have demonstrated excellence in teaching and will be expected to teach a range of graduate and undergraduate courses in general linguistics and field linguistics, including a year-long graduate field methods sequence.
