Assistant Professor in Linguistics

The Department of Linguistics at the University of Texas at Austin invites applications for a specialist in psycholinguistics at the rank of Assistant Professor on the tenure track. The position begins on August 18, 2020 and is contingent on funding.

Our new colleague will be an early career scholar (new PhDs through advanced Assistant Professors) whose child- or adult-focused psycholinguistic research will add methodological strengths to our department, including, but not limited to, experimental design, quantitative methods, computational modeling, imaging, and/or electrophysiological methods. The department is particularly interested in candidates whose program of research will complement the current areas of expertise in our department (syntax & semantics; phonetics & phonology; computational linguistics; documentary, descriptive & historical linguistics; and sign language linguistics). The new hire will also enjoy the opportunity to interact with other scholars engaged in psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic research across campus, including the Departments of Psychology, Neuroscience, and Communication Sciences and Disorders.
