Job Title: UCLA Linguistics Department: Faculty Position in First Language Acquisition

Job Rank: Asst/Assoc Professor

Specialty Areas: Language Acquisition; First Language Acquisition


The UCLA Department of Linguistics seeks to fill a faculty position (tenured or tenure-track), starting July 1, 2019, for a specialist in First Language Acquisition. We anticipate making an appointment at the Assistant or Associate Professor level. The department seeks candidates with a strong record of experimental research that engages productively with current issues in formal syntax, formal semantics, or both.

Ph.D. is required before date of hire. In general, candidates should have an outstanding record in research and teaching; candidates for an entry-level appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor should show great potential for outstanding research and teaching.

The teaching load is normally four courses per year, and will include graduate and undergraduate courses as well as graduate student advising. Faculty members also customarily participate in informal seminars attended by graduate students and other faculty members working in their subfield. Salary will be commensurate with education and experience.

Applications should be submitted using the UCLA academic job application site; see the application URL below. Applicants should provide:
- A brief cover letter;
- Curriculum vitae;
- A research statement;
- Three representative research papers;
- A description of teaching philosophy;
- An equity, diversity and inclusion Statement describing your past, present, and future (planned) contributions to equity, diversity, and inclusion; and
- Course evaluations and/or other material bearing on their teaching record.

Applicants should request for three letters of recommendation to be uploaded to the application site. Applications are due October 15, 2018. Preliminary interviews will be conducted online and at the BU Conference on Language Development in November. For further information please contact the Search Committee at the contact email below. The application materials must be submitted through the UC Recruit system website at the application link below.

The University of California seeks to recruit and retain a diverse workforce as a reflection of our commitment to serve the people of California, to maintain the excellence of the University, and to offer our students richly varied disciplines, perspectives and ways of knowing and learning.
