The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use
non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge
that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity,
nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we
have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding
employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international
employment page http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set 
up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Job Rank: Asst (Tenure Track)/Assoc Prof (Recently Tenured)  

Specialty Areas: General Linguistics; Semantics/Pragmatics, Syntax, & Sociolinguistics


The Department of Linguistics at Stanford University announces a search for
two full-time faculty positions with a starting date of September 1, 2009.
 One position is at the tenure-track Assistant Professor level, and the
other at the tenure-track Assistant Professor or recently tenured level. 
Applications are invited in any area of linguistics.  The department has
particular needs in the areas of semantics/pragmatics, syntax, and
sociolinguistics, but gives priority to the overall originality and promise
of the candidate's work rather than the area of specialization within

The department particularly values research which integrates insights from
different subfields of linguistics and from other disciplines, bringing a
variety of types of evidence to bear on the development of theories of
language and language use.  Duties include teaching and advising at both
the graduate and undergraduate levels and maintaining an active research
program.  Candidates should hold the PhD in linguistics or a related field
by the starting date.

Applications should be submitted online, in pdf format to the application
email address listed below.

The review of applications will begin on November 1, 2008, and applicants
are strongly encouraged to submit applications by that date; however,
applications will continue to be accepted until the position is filled. 
Applications should include a CV, statements of research and teaching
interests, teaching evaluations (if available), up to three representative
samples of published or unpublished work, and the names and e-mail
addresses of three or four references.  All applicants should also arrange
for their letters of reference to be sent directly to the Search Committee,
at the address listed below.

E-mail inquiries should be directed to the Department Manager, Nikhila Pai
(contact email below).

Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to
increasing the diversity of its faculty.  It welcomes nominations of, and
applications from, women and minority groups, as well as others who would
bring additional dimensions to the university's research and teaching missions.

Application Deadline: 01-Nov-2008 (Open until filled)
