The Department of Cognitive Studies (DEC) at Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS), Paris anticipates that it will advertise a full professorship in formal or experimental linguistics in Fall 2014 (for a starting date in Fall 2015), or in Fall 2015 (for a starting date in Fall 2016). While the precise job description will become available only after the position has been officially granted to ENS, we believe that it will probably include the following desiderata:
- A strong research record, as evidenced by publications in top-ranked international peer-reviewed journals;
- A strong teaching record at the advanced undergraduate (corresponding to beginning ENS students) and graduate level;
- An ability to teach in French within one year of the starting date, and to play an active role in shaping the linguistics curriculum within ENS and in associated MA programs;
- An ability to coordinate the organization of the the DEC-Linguistics group, which comprises several teams (http://iec-ling.ens.fr/?lang=en); and to take on administrative responsibilities within DEC;
- An ability to interact productively with partner teams within DEC and more broadly in Paris, both within linguistics and the cognitive sciences (including philosophy of language/mind).

Desired specializations are likely to include formal theoretical linguistics and/or experimental linguistics; an ability to teach graduate-level syntax might be helpful.

DEC has appointed a search committee in charge of ensuring that the position is advertised internationally. Its members are:
Emmanuel Chemla (LSCP; DEC)
Alec Marantz (Scientific Advisory Committee of DEC)
Sharon Peperkamp (LSCP; Director of DEC)
Philippe Schlenker (Institut Jean-Nicod; DEC)

Once the position is granted to DEC, ENS will appoint a separate selection committee in charge of establishing a shortlist, conducting interviews and ranking applicants in accordance with procedural rules within ENS and the French system. Note that while applications for a professorship require a ‘Habilitation’ (French: ‘Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches’), applicants from abroad who are not ‘habilitated’, or who are established in countries where there is no habilitation, undergo a specific application procedure that probes equivalent academic qualification.

Potential applicants are hereby invited to contact the search committee to receive further information about the procedure and about linguistics at DEC. Our email address can be found below.

Application Deadline: (Open until filled)
