Assistant Professor, Computational/Corpus Linguistics

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

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
