*Call for applications in linguistics (open rank)*

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Department of Linguistics (functional
linguistics program), is calling for applications in descriptive,
historical, or typological linguistics (open rank).

Candidates should have an established background in the description of a
language or family of languages, as well as another field of expertise. The
call is open to all fields, but preference will be given to candidates
specializing in one or more of the following fields: phonetics and
phonology, fieldwork-based language documentation, historical and
comparative linguistics, linguistic typology, or sociolinguistics. The
position is open to all candidates who have attained a Ph.D. degree or to
advanced graduate students who expect to be granted their Ph.D. no later
than July 1, 2018.

*Job requirements:*

Responsibilities include the teaching of required and elective courses in
the candidate's field(s) of specialization (at B.A. and M.A. degree levels)
and related fields, including basic and advanced courses on the linguistic
structures of the candidate's language(s) of expertise. Successful
candidates are expected to conduct independent and original research at the
highest academic level, demonstrate academic leadership, compete for
Israeli and international research grants, and should display an ability to
work cooperatively with colleagues in the Faculty of Humanities and the
university at large. Where pertinent and in accordance with
inter-departmental needs, a joint departmental appointment or teaching
sharing arrangement may be considered, combining  with one of several
departments and cognate areas of study in the Humanities.
The language of instruction at the Hebrew University is Hebrew, but
candidates who do not possess a mastery of Hebrew will be given time to
reach proficiency in Hebrew during the initial years of their appointment.
Qualified candidates will be invited for a job talk and interview.
