The Department of Linguistics at the University of Chicago invites applications for a faculty position in phonology as either tenure-track Assistant Professor or Associate Professor with tenure.


Applicants must specialize in phonology, broadly construed, but a wide intellectual engagement in linguistics is desirable. The department welcomes additional research interests or skills that will contribute to the intellectual life of a broad linguistics community (e.g., in alphabetic order, cognitive science, computational or statistical modeling, fieldwork, language documentation, phonetics, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, etc.). Applicants must be able to teach general linguistics courses and courses at all levels in phonetics and phonology, including seminars, and provide research mentoring.

The successful candidate must have completed all requirements for receipt of the Ph.D. in Linguistics or a related field by the start of the appointment. The expected start date is July 1, 2023, or as soon as possible thereafter.

  5. Teaching Statement
  6. Contact information for at least three references

Applicants may be asked to submit additional materials following the initial review of applications. Enquiries should be directed to Chair of the Search Committee, Alan Yu.

This position is contingent on budgetary approval.
