Job Title: Assistant Professor/Associate Professor in Computational Linguistics

Job Rank: Asst/Assoc Professor

Specialty Areas: Computational Linguistics


The Department of Linguistics at the University of North Texas seeks to fill a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, with a primary specialization in computational linguistics. We seek candidates who are active researchers in a core linguistics area that complements existing departmental strengths (low-resource language documentation and resource creation, second language acquisition, theoretical linguistics, computational discourse and semantics, CL for low-resource languages, and corpus-based research). In addition, the successful candidate will play an important role in the continued development of our graduate and undergraduate programs in computational linguistics. Evidence of an active research agenda, a promising trajectory for grant acquisition, and a strong commitment to innovative teaching is required for consideration.

The expected start date could be either Spring 2019 or Fall 2019. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the search is closed.

The teaching load for tenure-track positions is typically four courses per year, graduate and undergraduate levels. Additional responsibilities include service on departmental and university committees and student advising/supervision.

A PhD in Linguistics, Computer Science, Cognitive Science or a related field with a strong background in computational linguistics/natural language processing is required.

To apply, please see the application link below.
