Description:

Tenure Track Position in Semantics and Syntax
The University of Texas at Arlington

The Department of Linguistics and TESOL at the University of Texas at
Arlington invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of
Associate Professor or advanced Assistant Professor in Formal Syntax
or Semantics, to begin in fall 2013. Preference will be given to
candidates with the ability to teach and supervise work in both areas.
Candidates will have a doctorate in linguistics, with college-level
teaching experience and evidence of success and continued promise
in publishing in this area. Applicants must have a strong publication
record reflecting theoretically-driven interests and a national reputation
for high-quality research. The new associate or assistant professor will
be expected to be active in research and publication, to meet standard
departmental teaching requirements, and to perform service duties as
required by the Department and the University (e.g. dissertation
supervision, college level committee work, and program advising). The
successful candidate will have a research area that complements
existing faculty expertise. We anticipate that this faculty member will
contribute training students in core areas of formal meaning and
structure analysis. In addition, we are interested in candidates who can
contribute to teaching in the structure of a non-western language,
pragmatics, morphology, sociolinguistics, or quantitative research
methods. Potential hires with a successful track record in external
grants are of particular interest. Applications from members of
underrepresented groups are especially encouraged.

We are a growing department, having hired three additional new
faculty in the past four years, with plans to hire two tenure-line faculty
to start in Fall 2013. We have four graduate programs, including a
doctorate in linguistics and an M.A. in TESOL, as well as a new BA in
linguistics. The University of Texas at Arlington is aggressively
pursuing Tier One status, seeking to increase doctoral production,
undergraduate graduation and retention rates, and extramural funding.
The University is highly diverse in its student demographics, and is a
doctoral-granting, research-intensive public institution of 33,000
students in the dynamic Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, which has a wide
variety of cultural, recreational, and entertainment offerings.

A letter of application for this position, describing teaching and
research interests, a current curriculum vitae, two writing samples, and
three letters of reference from those most familiar with the applicant's
work should be sent in PDF form to the application email address
below with "Syntax-Semantics Search" in the subject line.

For more information about the department, visit http://ling.uta.edu.
Consideration of applications will begin on November 26, 2012, and will
continue until the position is filled. Preliminary interviews are planned
for the 2013 LSA Annual Meeting in Boston. This is a security sensitive
position, and a criminal background check will be conducted on
finalists. UT Arlington is an Equal Opportunity & Affirmative Action
Employer.

Application Deadline: 26-Nov-2012
