Associate Professor / Assistant Professor (First Language Acquisition)
(Ref. 160002CS) (Closing date: January 16, 2017)

Department of Linguistics and Modern Languages is a young and vibrant
Department established in 2004, devoted to the study of language and mind,
with strengths in theoretical linguistics, language acquisition, bilingualism,
sign linguistics and neurolinguistics. We are seeking a linguist who has
expertise in first language acquisition. The appointment will be at the rank
of Associate Professor or Assistant Professor, depending on the credentials of
the candidate. 

The Department is particularly interested in applicants whose research has a
strong grounding in linguistic theory and who employ conventional and/or
contemporary research methods to address core issues in linguistics.
Applicants whose research crosses multiple areas of linguistics and cognate
areas are especially welcomed. Research expertise in the languages of China
will be a definite advantage.

Applicants should have (i) a PhD degree in linguistics; (ii) a strong
commitment to effective teaching; and (iii) a record of excellence in research
in the relevant field consistent with rank and history of employment.

The primary medium of instruction of the Department is English, for both
undergraduate and postgraduate classes. The Department collaborates closely
with other departments and research units across the University.
State-of-the-art research facilities (e.g., EEG systems, sound chambers, eye
trackers, etc.) are available.

The appointee is expected to (a) teach undergraduate and postgraduate
linguistics courses; (b) supervise projects and theses of undergraduate, MA,
MPhil and PhD students; (c) conduct programmatic research in his/her areas of
expertise, with external funding; and (d) undertake administrative duties.

Appointment will normally be made on contract basis for up to three years
initially commencing August 2017 or as early as possible, which, subject to
mutual agreement, may lead to longer-term appointment or substantiation.
Review of applications will begin on January 3, 2017.

the post above. For more information and to apply online, please visit the
