The Department of Linguistics at Stanford University is seeking applicants for a full-time
tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level, with a starting date of
September 1, 2023. The position is open to all areas of specialization in linguistics.
Applicants will be expected to teach courses in linguistics at both the graduate and

to exceed two pages); statement of teaching interests and philosophy (not to exceed one
page); up to three representative samples of published or unpublished work; and up to
three reference letters, to be submitted on their behalf.

The Linguistics Department, School of Humanities and Sciences, and Stanford University
value faculty who are committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Candidates may optionally include as part of their research or teaching statement a brief
discussion of how their work will further these ideals.

For full consideration, materials must be received by October 14, 2022. Review of
applications will begin on that date and will continue until the position is filled. Later
applications may be considered at the discretion of the search committee.
