Call for applications in linguistics (open rank)

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Department of Linguistics, invites applications for a tenure-track position in linguistics with a specialization in formal syntax or semantics.

Candidates should have an established expertise in formal syntax and/or formal semantics. The successful candidate will join a department with linguists of various theoretical orientations, and will be expected to contribute to the department as a whole in their teaching and research.

The position is open to all candidates who have attained a PhD. degree or to advanced graduate students who expect to be granted their PhD. no later than July 1, 2019.

Job requirements:
Responsibilities include the teaching of required and elective courses in the candidate's field(s) of specialization (at the B.A. and M.A. degree levels). Successful candidates are expected to conduct independent and original research at the highest academic level, demonstrate academic leadership, compete for Israeli and international research grants, and should display an ability to work cooperatively with colleagues in the Faculty of Humanities and the university at large. Where pertinent and in accordance with inter-departmental needs, a joint departmental appointment or teaching sharing arrangement may be considered, combining with one of several departments and cognate areas of study in the Humanities.

The Hebrew University's main language of instruction is Hebrew. Nonetheless, the possibility of teaching one or more graduate courses in English may be entertained. Candidates whose Hebrew proficiency is such that they would not be comfortable teaching in Hebrew will be encouraged to master the Hebrew language sufficiently during the initial years following their appointment.

Qualified candidates will be invited for a campus visit, which will include a job talk, an interview and meetings with department members.

The required documents and instructions on how to apply are provided at the application link below.

For any additional information, please contact the department chair, Dr. Nora Boneh, at the contact information provided below.
