The Department of Linguistics at SFU will have one or more openings at the rank of assistant professor (tenure track), beginning September 1, 2015. Applications are invited from candidates with expertise in the core area of phonology; specialization in any of the areas of articulatory phonology, laboratory phonology, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, or language documentation would be an asset.

The department currently serves 250 undergraduate majors and 25 graduate students. In addition to a full suite of linguistics courses at all levels, the department offers an array of courses in First Nations languages, primarily in communities throughout B. C. and the Yukon. The department’s research infrastructure includes a phonetics lab, language and brain lab, phonological processing lab, experimental syntax lab, and a Centre for First Nations Languages.

An application with a covering letter, the names of three references, and a current curriculum vitae should be submitted by the deadline.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
