Description

University of California, Irvine
Junior Faculty Positions in Language Science

The Department of Language Science, is seeking applicants for two tenure-track assistant professor faculty positions. We seek candidates who combine a strong theoretical background with computational, psycholinguistic, or cognitive-neuroscientific approaches to the study of language.

The successful candidate will interact with a dynamic and growing community in language, speech, and hearing sciences within the Department, the Department of Cognitive Sciences, the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science, the Center for the Advancement of Logic, its Philosophy, History, and Applications, the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience & Engineering, the Center for Hearing Research, and the Brain Initiative. Individuals whose interests add to the strengths of the Department in bilingualism and/or cognitive modeling will be given preference.

Interested candidates should apply online at https://recruit.ap.uci.edu/JPF06053. Completed applications must include a cover letter highlighting qualifications, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching, statement of research, three recent publications, Authorization to Release Information form, and three letters of reference by the deadline. A separate statement that addresses past and/or potential contributions to diversity, equity and inclusion must also be included in the application materials.

The University of California is committed to creating and maintaining a community dedicated to the advancement, application, and transmission of knowledge and creative endeavors through academic excellence, where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in a safe and secure environment, free of violence, harassment, discrimination, exploitation, or intimidation. With this commitment as well as a commitment to addressing all forms of academic misconduct, UC Irvine conducts institutional reference checks for candidates finalists to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer of appointment into Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full). The institutional reference checks involve contacting the administration of the applicant’s previous institution(s) to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University’s Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UC Irvine requires all candidates of Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full) to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into AP RECRUIT as part of their application. If the candidate does not include the signed authorization to release information with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete. As with any incomplete application, the application will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists (i.e., those to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer) considered for Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full) positions will be subject to institutional reference checks.

Application review will commence on November 16, 2020, and continue until the position is filled.
