Position Description

 

The Department of Linguistics (https://linguistics.ucsc.edu/) at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for a position in syntactic theory or syntactic theory and its interfaces.

 

This position can be made at the level of Assistant Professor (tenure track), Associate Professor (with tenure) or Full Professor (with tenure). Applicants at the Assistant Professor level should have the teaching potential and research

expertise in syntactic theory or syntactic theory and its interfaces that will enable them to contribute to this area. Applicants at the Associate Professor level or Full Professor level should have an established track record of teaching and research in syntactic theory or syntactic theory and its interfaces that will contribute significantly to this area of the Department’s research profile and teaching mission. Applicants at the Full Professor level should in addition have a demonstrated record of service to the academic and professional communities.

 

The successful candidate will contribute to existing strengths in the Department but will also add to those strengths in new and substantive ways, and will contribute to the undergraduate and graduate curricula, including the mentoring of graduate and undergraduate students.

 

We welcome candidates who understand the barriers facing women and minorities who are underrepresented in higher education careers (as evidenced by life experiences and educational background), and who have experience in equity and diversity with respect to teaching, mentoring, research, life experiences, or service towards building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment. These can take a variety of forms such as, but not limited to, effective pedagogical strategies used for the educational advancement of students in underrepresented groups; demonstrated contributions to the advancement of access and equal opportunity in education; and participation in activities that support the recruitment, retention, and success of scholars and students.

 

The chosen candidate will be expected to sign a statement representing that they are not the subject of any ongoing investigation or disciplinary proceeding at their current academic institution or place of employment, nor have they in the past ten years been formally disciplined at any academic institution/place of employment. In the event the candidate cannot make this representation, they will be expected to disclose in writing to the hiring Dean the circumstances surrounding any formal discipline that they have received, as well as any current or ongoing investigation or disciplinary process of which they are the subject. (Note that discipline includes a negotiated settlement agreement to resolve a matter related to substantiated misconduct.)

 

*Initial screening of candidates will be based on letter of application; statement of contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion; statement of research; and statement of teaching
