The Department of Linguistics at the University of California, Berkeley has been authorized to make an appointment in phonetics at the rank of assistant professor (tenure-track). Salary will be commensurate with experience; the Ph.D. is required by July 1, 2013, the starting date of the appointment. Duties will include undergraduate and graduate advising and teaching (four courses per year, in phonetics and other areas of linguistics), supervision of student research, and development of a successful and original research program.
We seek applicants who have a broad intellectual engagement in linguistics, a theoretically informed research specialization in phonetics, and demonstrated excellence in teaching. Expertise in articulatory phonetics is essential. Research experience in instrumental phonetic fieldwork will be considered an asset, though is not necessary.

Applicants should arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent. All recommendation letters will be treated as confidential per University of California policy and California state law.
