Job Title: Computational Linguist

Specialty Areas: Computational Linguistics


The Program in Linguistics at Dartmouth College invites applications for a tenure-track position in Computational Linguistics at the level of Assistant Professor to begin on July 1, 2019. A Ph.D. is preferred, though consideration will be given to ABD candidates who are close to completing their doctorates. The successful applicant will be trained in both linguistics and computer science, including advanced programming skills and experience in computational linguistic research, able to teach both introductory and advanced Comp Ling courses, and able to apply computational methods in a range of linguistics research areas. Consistent with the profile of the Dartmouth Linguistics Program, experience in the use of computational methods and applications to facilitate field linguistics or the understanding of lesser-studied languages is also highly desirable. The position involves teaching a range of courses in linguistics, including in areas outside of one’s specialization, advising undergraduate theses and other research activities.

Dartmouth’s Program in Linguistics has five tenure-track faculty members with a variety of research interests. The Program has on-going collaborations with many academic units on campus including Native American Studies, Cognitive Science, Environmental Studies and Anthropology. More information can be found at the department website provided above.

Dartmouth College combines a commitment to innovative scholarship with dedication to excellent teaching. The Dartmouth student body is diverse by many measures. We are especially interested in applicants with a record of successful teaching and mentoring of students from all backgrounds (including first-generation college students, low-income students, racial and ethnic minorities, women, LGBTQ, etc.). The successful candidate will have the opportunity to contribute to Dartmouth’s undergraduate diversity initiatives in research, such as the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship, Women in Science Program, E. E. Just STEM Scholars Program, and Academic Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (ASURE).
