The Department of Linguistics in the Faculty of Arts at the University of
Alberta invites applications for a tenured position in Quantitative Linguistics
at the Full Professor level. The successful candidate must hold the PhD and
will be exceptionally well qualified with an outstanding research record in
the application of quantitative, statistically-based techniques to the study
of language, particularly in the areas of morphosyntax, language processing,
and corpus linguistics. Responsibilities will include maintaining an active
research program, teaching/supervision in both our undergraduate and
graduate linguistics programs, and administrative service.
The Department of Linguistics has a strong commitment to empirical and
experimental approaches to linguistic research. The Department consists of
eleven full-time, continuing faculty members pursuing research projects in
experimental phonetics, phonology, morphosyntax and semantics of
Amerindian languages, cognitive linguistics, corpus linguistics, language
documentation and revitalization, bilingual 1st and 2nd language acquisition
and language impairment, psycholinguistics, computational/historical
linguistics, and sociolinguistics. We usually have approximately 40 students
in our graduate program at any given time, of which roughly one quarter are
pursuing the MSc while the majority are working towards the PhD. More

The Faculty of Arts is the oldest and most diverse faculty on campus, and
one of the largest research and teaching centres in western Canada
(http://www.foa.ualberta.ca). The University's main campus is located in
Edmonton, the vibrant, cosmopolitan capital of the province of Alberta. The
Edmonton metropolitan area is the sixth largest in the country with a
population of approximately one million. Edmonton is located only a few
hours drive from Banff and Jasper National Parks, which offer skiing in winter
and excellent hiking and sightseeing in summer.
