The UCLA Department of Linguistics seeks to fill a ladder faculty position, starting July 1, 2016, for a Computational Linguist. This is an open rank search with preference for a junior appointment, but applications from strongly qualified senior candidates are welcome. The successful candidate will demonstrate strong engagement with linguistic theory in the areas of syntax and/or semantics and will have primary responsibility for overseeing the department’s graduate and undergraduate programs in computational linguistics.

Course load (normally four per year) will include graduate and undergraduate courses as well as graduate student advising.

Ph.D. is required before date of hire. Applications should be submitted using the UCLA academic job application site below. Applicants should provide a brief cover letter, curriculum vitae, description of research, description of teaching philosophy, course evaluations or other material bearing on teaching record, and a link to a web site from which their publications and other writings may be downloaded in electronic form.
