The Department of Linguistics at Northwestern University invites applications for a full-time, non-renewable, two year postdoctoral fellowship in any area of linguistics. We are looking for candidates who pursue an integrated, interdisciplinary approach to the scientific study of language, utilizing experimental methods, corpus analysis, and/or computational modeling to inform linguistic theory and its applications. The fellowship period begins September 1, 2017.

Each year, the fellow will be expected to teach one undergraduate-level course in the Department of Linguistics. The fellow will also serve as an undergraduate adviser for the Cognitive Science Program, working with students pursuing the major and minor on academic issues (e.g., course selection, research opportunities, progress on degree requirements).

The fellow will join a vibrant interdisciplinary community of researchers from across the cognitive sciences (including communication sciences, computer science, learning sciences, music cognition, neuroscience, philosophy, and psychology). The fellow’s research will be supported by the facilities of the Department of Linguistics. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in Linguistics or a related field (e.g., Cognitive Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, Computer Science, Philosophy, Psychology, Speech and Hearing Sciences) by the start date. Please include a CV that includes contact information, brief statements of research and teaching interests (1-3 pages each), up to 3 reprints or other written work (including thesis chapters for ABD applicants), teaching evaluations (if available), and the names and contact information for three references. Please visit the application URL below for online application instructions.
