Job Title: Assistant Professor of Linguistics (Phonology)

Job Rank: Assistant Professor

Specialty Areas: General Linguistics; Phonetics; Phonology


The Department of Linguistics at Western Washington University is inviting applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning September 2020.

We seek a specialist in phonology with demonstrated ability to teach a wide range of undergraduate courses. The applicant would be expected to teach a core course in sounds and sound structures, an advanced course in phonetics/phonology, and other courses in the major, such as introductory linguistics, linguistic analysis, and upper division topics courses.

Although Linguistics has been an interdepartmental program for 20 years and has offered a BA in Linguistics since 2002, 2019-20 is the inaugural year of the Linguistics Department. Thus, the position will be one of the first in the newly-formed department and the candidate will therefore be able to continue to shape the curriculum, expanding the department’s research and teaching in novel ways and complementing existing strengths and research interests of other Linguistics faculty.

Additional responsibilities include:
- Standard quarter-system teaching assignment (2-2-2);
- Exemplary teaching;
- Active program of scholarly activity;
- Service to the Department through a range of activities.

The successful candidate will be expected to fulfill teaching and mentoring responsibilities in ways that provide equitable and inclusive learning environments for all students and will offer a strong record of community-engaged scholarship and research ethics.

To apply, please see the application link provided below.
