The UCLA Department of Linguistics seeks to fill a faculty position (tenured or tenure-track), starting July 1, 2019, for a specialist in phonology. The core qualification for the position will be expertise in phonological theory. Additional qualifications that may strengthen an application, but are not required, are expertise in phonological experimentation, fieldwork experience, and computational expertise. We anticipate making an appointment at the Assistant or Associate Professor level.

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. We also request that you upload to the site anonymized copies of your research sample; it is not necessary to expunge all mentions of your name in the text, but please remove or obscure your name where it is prominently identified as the author, such as the front page and top-of-page headers. 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.
