The Department of Linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania invites
applications for a tenure-track position in the study of language variation at
the rank of Assistant Professor. The position will begin on July 1, 2017. The
successful candidate must have the Ph.D. completed by the start of the

Applicants should have an interest in the general study of language variation,
including change and variation within and across languages and dialects, in
particular in syntax and semantics as well as their interfaces. We are
particularly interested in candidates whose research agenda crucially builds
on empirical approaches such as experimental methods, fieldwork, computational
modeling, and quantitative analysis of naturally occurring data.

Applicants should present a proven record of research and the potential for
establishing a research program with extramural funding.  The successful
candidate must also provide evidence of excellence in teaching, and will be
expected to contribute to undergraduate and graduate instruction including
introductory level courses.

Candidates are to apply at  the application URL below. Include a curriculum
vitae, a statement of research and teaching interests, and representative
publications. Applicants must also submit the names and contact information of
three referees who have agreed to provide a letter of reference. The
University will contact the referees with instructions on how to submit their
letters to the website. Submitting a cover letter or teaching evaluations is
optional.

Review of applications will begin on December 15, 2016, and will continue
until the position is filled. It is advised that candidates apply as early as
possible.  Inquiries may be sent to the contact email below.

The Department of Linguistics is strongly committed to Penn's Action Plan for
Faculty Diversity and Excellence and to creating a more diverse faculty (for
more information see:
