Those whose record of research and teaching meaningfully relate to one or more of the following areas are particularly encouraged to apply: clinical speech and hearing sciences, the documentation of understudied languages, language acquisition, mathematical, statistical or computational methods in linguistic research, the phonetics-phonology interface, psycholinguistic experimentation, and/or sociolinguistics.

Teaching responsibilities will include undergraduate courses in laboratory and acoustic phonetics, anatomy and physiology of speech, and graduate courses in phonetics and in the areas of the appointee's specialization. The typical teaching load is 2+2. Other duties include supervision of graduate students, undergraduate student advising, involvement in curricular development, and performance of University and Department service.
