The Linguistics Department of the University of California, Santa  
Barbara seeks to hire a linguist specializing in phonetics. The  
appointment will be a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor  
level, effective July 1, 2016. The ideal candidate will use primary  
data collected through one or more methodological paradigms to explore  
the importance of phonetics for our understanding of phonology, and  
more generally, linguistic theory. We especially seek candidates with  
expertise in speech perception and/or articulation. Important criteria  
for this position include research on multiple languages and thorough  
training in linguistics. The candidate should also have the potential  
to link the theoretical implications of his or her research to other  
subdisciplines in linguistics, and to interact with colleagues and  
students across disciplinary boundaries at UCSB. Candidates must have  
demonstrated excellence in teaching and will be expected to teach a  
range of graduate and undergraduate courses in phonetics, phonology,  
and general linguistics and to contribute to the department's  
undergraduate minor in Language and Speech Technologies. For more  
information on the department, see www.linguistics.ucsb.edu.

A Ph.D. in linguistics or a related field is expected by the time of  
appointment. To ensure full consideration, all application materials,  
including letters of reference, should be received by November 6,  
2015. The position will remain open until filled. Applicants must  
complete the online form at https://recruit.ap.ucsb.edu/apply/JPF00566  
and must submit online the following in PDF format: letter of  
application, statement of research interests, curriculum vitae, and 2  
writing samples. Applicants should request at least 3 academic letters  
of reference to be sent directly to  
https://recruit.ap.ucsb.edu/apply/JPF00566 by the November 6 deadline.  
Materials submitted via fax or hard copy will not be accepted.  
Inquiries may be addressed to the Search Committee at  
Phoneticssearch at linguistics.ucsb.edu.

Applicants selected for an interview will have the option of either a  
Skype video interview with the search committee or an in-person  
interview at the Linguistic Society of America annual meeting in  
Washington, D.C. (January 7-10, 2016); interviews in either format  
will be considered equivalent. Our department has a genuine commitment  
to diversity, and is especially interested in candidates who can  
contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community  
through research, teaching and service. The University of California  
is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer. All qualified
