The Department of Linguistics at Rice University (Houston, Texas) is now accepting applications for a lecturer position to begin August 1, 2018. The candidate should have research expertise related to speech perception, experimental phonetics, and/or laboratory phonology, with broader relevance to the cognitive sciences. Experience recording and analyzing language-in-use in local speech communities (either underdocumented/endangered languages, or minority varieties of English) is also desirable. This is a one-year appointment with strong possibility of renewal contingent on performance.

The successful applicant will be asked to teach two undergraduate courses per semester, including our large Introduction to Linguistics course, courses in Phonetics/Phonology, and a course related to empirical research or computational modeling. S/he will also be expected to participate in departmental activities and contribute to the mentoring of undergraduate students in the Linguistics Department and/or the Cognitive Science Program.

We especially welcome applications from researchers who share the department’s interest in approaching language from a usage-based perspective with solid empirical grounding in primary data, and approaches of a cognitive, social-interactional, and/or functional nature.

The deadline for receipt of applications is May 24th, 2018. PhD is required by time of appointment.

Application materials include: (1) cover letter, (2) CV, (3) teaching statement, (4) sample of written work, and (5) names and contact information for three references, who will be contacted for short-listed applicants. Past teaching evaluations and/or information about course topics the applicant could teach are also welcome but not required at this time.
