Haverford College seeks to hire a full-time, tenure-track assistant professor in general linguistics. The area of research expertise is open but interests in a non-IndoEuropean language, field work, or in a hybrid area of linguistics would be valuable. In keeping with our strong liberal arts tradition, we seek candidates who are committed to excellence in both teaching and research. The ideal candidate will be able to teach at all levels of the curriculum, including introductory and advanced phonology, syntax, a course in the candidate’s area of expertise, and the supervision of student research. The ability to build bridges to other disciplines and/or teach cross-listed courses is desirable. While the position is based at Haverford College, it is part of the Tri-College Department of Linguistics (Bryn Mawr, Haverford, and Swarthmore); the successful candidate will teach on all three campuses. Preference will be given to candidates with postdoctoral experience or those otherwise able to demonstrate the ability to establish a successful independent research program. The position begins fall semester of 20 12, and it is expected that the PhD will be completed prior to that start date.
Haverford College is a top residential liberal arts college in suburban Philadelphia, enrolling approximately 1200 undergraduates, and is in a consortium with Swarthmore and Bryn Mawr Colleges. Haverford offers a competitive startup package, generous sabbatical policy, small class size, and attractive teaching load.
The application deadline is November 15, 2011. Qualified candidates should submit a single pdf file containing a current CV, research statement, teaching statement, and representative publications to firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, please arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent directly to Corrinne Fahl, 101 Ryan, Haverford College, 370 Lancaster Avenue, Haverford, P A 19041.
