The Department of Linguistics at the University of North Texas seeks to fill the Chair of the Department of Linguistics position at the rank of tenure-track/tenured Associate/Full Professor.
The Chair duties will include supporting current efforts to promote advanced research and programmatic growth within the undergraduate and graduate levels as the Department seeks national recognition. The specialization of the faculty is open and should be in keeping with typological, fieldwork oriented, data rich, and experimental approaches of the department.
Specializations in qualitative methods in phonological, typological, or sociolinguistic methods of language analysis will be a plus. We are looking for candidates who are committed to building on existing relationships with other units in the College of Information, including in the areas of information organization for language data and teaching language using new technologies.
