Job Title: Assistant Professor in Computational Language Science (Tenure Track)

Job Rank: Assistant Professor

Specialty Areas: Computational Linguistics


Description:

The University of Florida Linguistics Department invites applications for a tenure-track appointment in computational language science at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning August 16, 2022. This is a full-time, nine-month, tenure-accruing position. Candidates should have an active research agenda studying any aspect of language from a computational perspective.

Specializations include, but are not limited to:
- computational linguistics,
- sociolinguistics,
- neuro/psycholinguistics,
- corpus linguistics,
- computational semantics,
- phonetics, and/or phonology.

UF has recently committed to a university-wide artificial intelligence initiative along with a major super-computing collaboration with NVIDIA (ai.ufl.edu). Thus, we particularly encourage applications from candidates whose research explores artificial intelligence, natural language processing, or computational algorithms, as well as their societal implications. The latter may include issues of equity, bias, accountability, transparency, or inclusivity. The Department of Linguistics seeks to train the next generation of linguists who are comfortable integrating computational approaches into their research in revealing and societally responsible ways. Ability to teach computationally-oriented courses is required. Candidates must hold the Ph.D. in linguistics, computer science, or a closely-related field by August 15, 2022. For more information about the position, visit the application link below.

Submit application online at the application link below and include:
- a brief cover letter,
- a statement of teaching,
- a research statement and interests,
- a diversity statement describing your experiences and commitments to diversity,
- a CV,
- 1-3 sample publications,
- the names and email addresses for three references, and
- representative teaching evaluations if available.

Review of applications will begin on Nov 22, 2021 and will continue until December 23, 2021.

Application Deadline: 23-Dec-2021
