Visiting Assistant Professor position at University of Rochester

The Department of Linguistics at the University of Rochester invites applications for a one year non-tenure track appointment as a visiting assistant professor to begin July 1, 2012; possibility of renewal. We seek candidates with a proven record of research in formal pragmatics and semantics, a record of excellence in teaching, and strong evidence of interest in interdisciplinary work. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in hand before the appointment starts. Duties include teaching established courses in the undergraduate and graduate curriculum and working with graduate students in allied fields such as experimental psychology and computer science.

Excellence in teaching is required, and breadth of teaching interest is highly desirable. The Department of Linguistics is part of a larger, active interdisciplinary community consisting of faculty and students doing research in cognitive science, philosophy, computer science, neuroscience, and we seek candidates who are likely to further those connections. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience.

Applicants should send a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, teaching evaluations if possible, and arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent to: Professor Joyce McDonough, c/o Carla Gottschalk (carla.gottschalk@.rochester.edu). Review of applications will begin on 1 March, 2012 and continue until the position is filled.

The University of Rochester, an Equal Opportunity Employer, has a commitment to diversity and encourages applications from candidates from groups underrepresented in higher education.

Application Deadline: 1-March-2012 (Open until filled)
