The Linguistics Program at the University of North Texas invites applications for the position of Lecturer beginning fall 2015 or soon thereafter. Only applicants with a Ph.D. in Linguistics will be considered. This is a multi-year position with an annual evaluation for renewal. The workload is 80% teaching (4/4) and 20% service. We are especially interested in applicants who have experience and demonstrated excellence in teaching core Linguistics classes and who have experience mentoring students at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The recent move of Linguistics to the College of Information has positioned the Linguistics Program in a collaborative environment for developing cutting-edge curricula that incorporates research on technology and language learning, language structure and use with database design and management, text mining, and computational and quantitative methods in linguistics. A natural outgrowth of this relationship and expanded focus will be new directions in linguistic research that are currently at the forefront of the field and highly fundable by external funding agencies.

UNT offers 99 bachelor’s, 83 master’s, and 36 doctoral degree programs, many nationally and internationally recognized. The Linguistics program at UNT offers a BA in Linguistics, an MA in Linguistics, MA in ESL, and a Graduate Academic Certificate in TESOL. Students in the Interdisciplinary Information Science (IIS) Ph.D. program may also opt to specialize in linguistics. Additional information about degrees, courses, and faculty can be found at
