Job Description: Reed College invites applications for one or possibly two 1-year visiting positions in Linguistics at the Assistant Professor level for the 2013-14 academic year, to commence August 2013.

Reed is a selective liberal arts institution with a commitment to teaching excellence and scholarship. The successful candidate for the first position will teach one upper-division linguistics course per semester, plus one section of the College’s year-long freshman humanities course (see for description). If a second position becomes available, the successful candidate for the second position will co-teach the department’s introductory course (Introduction to Linguistic Analysis) and offer 4 upper-division linguistics courses. Both positions also involve supervising year-long senior thesis projects on a wide array of topics within linguistics.

We are interested in outstanding candidates with specializations in all areas of linguistic analysis. However, we especially invite applications from candidates who can teach and advise research in two or more of the following areas: phonetics and phonology, syntax, semantics, psycholinguistics, or the structure of understudied languages or language families. Candidates with expertise in experimental methods are particularly encouraged to apply. Experience in teaching and advising student research projects is also highly desirable. Humanities teaching experience is not necessary, but candidates who have taught courses with a substantial writing component will be given particular consideration. PhD or ABD in Linguistics required for appointment.

The Reed community values cultural and intellectual pluralism as essential to the excellence of our academic programs.

Through interfolio, please submit a letter of application describing teaching and scholarly interests, along with a CV and examples of scholarly work, and three letters of recommendation.
