The Linguistics Department of the University of California, Santa Barbara
seeks to hire a specialist in computational and/or corpus linguistic
approaches to language. The appointment will be tenure-track at the
Assistant Professor level, effective July 1, 2005.

We are especially interested in candidates whose research shows theoretical
implications bridging computational and/or corpus linguistics and general
linguistics, and who can interact with colleagues and students across
disciplinary boundaries at UCSB. Candidates will be preferred whose
research engages with the departmental focus on functional and usage-based
approaches to explaining language.

Research experience with corpora of naturally occurring language use is
required. Candidates must have demonstrated excellence in teaching, and
will be expected to teach a range of graduate and undergraduate courses in
both computational/corpus linguistics and general linguistics.

Ph.D. in linguistics or a related field such as cognitive science or
computer science is required. Ph.D. normally required by the time of
appointment. Applicants should submit hard copy of curriculum vitae,
statement of research interests, 1-2 writing samples, and full contact
information for three academic references to the Search Committee,
Linguistics Department, UCSB, Santa Barbara, CA 93106-3100. Fax and email
applications not accepted.

Inquiries may be addressed to the above address or via email to
lingsearch at linguistics.ucsb.edu. Tentative deadline is November 12, 2004.
However, the position will remain open until filled. Preliminary interviews
will be conducted at the Linguistic Society of America, although attendance
is not required for consideration. The department is especially interested
in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the
academic community through research, teaching and service. UCSB is an Equal
Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.
