Call for applications in linguistics (open rank)
The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, department of linguistics (functional linguistics program), is calling for applications in descriptive, historical, or typological linguistics (open rank). Candidates should have an established background in the description of a language or family of languages, as well as another field of expertise. The call is open to all fields, but preference will be given to candidates specializing in one or more of the following fields: phonetics and phonology, fieldwork-based language documentation, historical and comparative linguistics, linguistic typology, or sociolinguistics. The position is open to all candidates who have attained a Ph.D. degree or to advanced graduate students who expect to be granted their Ph.D. no later than July 1, 2018.
Responsibilities include the teaching of required and elective courses in the candidate's field(s) of specialization (at B.A. and M.A. degree levels) and related fields, including basic and advanced courses on the linguistic structures of the candidate's language(s) of expertise. Successful candidates are expected to conduct independent and original research at the highest academic level, demonstrate academic leadership, compete for Israeli and international research grants, and should display an ability to work cooperatively with colleagues in the Faculty of Humanities and the university at large. Where pertinent and in accordance with inter-departmental needs, a joint departmental appointment or teaching sharing arrangement may be considered, combining with one of several departments and cognate areas of study in the Humanities.
The language of instruction at the Hebrew University is Hebrew, but candidates who do not possess a mastery of Hebrew will be given time to reach proficiency in Hebrew during the initial years of their appointment.
Qualified candidates will be invited for a job talk and interview.
