The Department of Linguistics at the University at Buffalo invites applications for a tenure-track position in computational linguistics at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning in Fall 2019. Candidates are sought with a strong research record in the application of experimental, corpus, or quantitative/statistical methods to the computational study of language. Additional specializations are welcome. The successful applicant will be expected to teach courses at all levels as well as serve on thesis committees, establish and maintain a robust research program, pursue external funding when available, and provide service to the University and discipline.
The Department of Linguistics at the University at Buffalo (http://arts-sciences.buffalo.edu/linguistics.html) has a tradition of research on diverse languages using diverse approaches to linguistics, with a strong focus on syntactic and semantic typology, constraint-based models of grammar (e.g. Construction Grammar, HPSG, RRG), psycholinguistics, and linguistic fieldwork. The ideal candidate will have research interests that complement those of members from the University at Buffalo’s Departments of Linguistics, Computer Science and Engineering, Psychology, or Communicative Disorders and Sciences. The university provides access to supercomputing infrastructure via the Center for Computational Research.
Formal review of applications begins on November 1, 2018 and will continue until the position is filled. Applicants should submit electronically a cover letter, CV, and contact information for at least three references at the application URL below. A research statement, teaching statement, and samples of work are also required for a complete application. They may be attached via the UB Jobs automated system or sent under separate cover by email to the application contact email address below.
UB is an AA/EOE and welcomes all to apply including veterans and individuals with disabilities.
PhD in Computational Linguistics, Computer Science, Linguistics, or an allied field of the language sciences. Demonstrated research in current approaches to Computational Linguistics.
Exceptional ABD candidates who anticipate PhD conferral within a year of appointment will be considered. In that case, the initial appointment will be a one-year temporary appointment as Visiting Assistant Professor. Continuation of appointment in the Assistant Professor title will be contingent upon conferral of the PhD.
