UCLA Linguistics Department Faculty Position in Field Linguistics

University of California Los Angeles

Requisition Number: JPF06791

The UCLA Department of Linguistics seeks to fill a ladder faculty position (tenured or tenure-track), starting July 1, 2022, for a specialist in field linguistics. Candidates whose research bears on phonological theory are especially welcome. The ideal candidate will be both strong in linguistic theory and analysis and expert in modern methods of field data collection, organization, and storage, and will have experience working in partnership with native speaker communities. We anticipate making an appointment at the Assistant or Associate Professor level, but applications from strongly qualified senior candidates are welcome.

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 (see below for more info); and course evaluations and/or other material bearing on their teaching record. We also request that you upload to the site anonymized copies of your research samples; it is not necessary to expunge all mentions of your name in the text, but please remove or obscure your name where it is clearly identified as the author, such as the front page, top-of-page headers, and explicit self-citations (“As I argued in…”) in the text. Applicants should request three letters of recommendation to be uploaded to the application site. Applications are due November 1, 2021. Preliminary interviews will be conducted online in late November.
