The Department of Cognitive Sciences (www.cogsci.uci.edu) at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) is seeking applicants for a tenure-track assistant professor faculty position. We seek candidates who combine a strong background in theoretical linguistics (including phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics) with the empirical, developmental, or computational study of language (e.g., psycholinguistic, computational and mathematical modeling, or neurolinguistic approaches).
The successful candidate will interact with a dynamic and growing community in cognitive, computational, neural, and developmental sciences within the Department, the Center for Language Science, and the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience. Individuals whose interests mesh with those of the current faculty and who will contribute to the university's active role in interdisciplinary research and teaching initiatives will be given preference.
Interested candidates should apply online at: https://recruit.ap.uci.edu/apply/JPF01972 with a cover letter indicating primary research and teaching interests, CV, three recent publications, and three letters of recommendation.
Application review will commence on November 1, 2013, and continue until the position is filled.
The University of California has an active career partners program, is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to excellence through diversity, and has an Advance (NSF) program for gender equity.
