The Department of Linguistics at the University of Kansas invites applications for a non-tenure track, limited term appointment for two academic years for a Visiting Assistant Professor position to begin as early as August 18, 2022. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Linguistics or a closely related field with a specialization in Psycholinguistics (expected by the start date of the appointment). Expertise in psycholinguistic research on sound structure is preferred, but the position is also open to candidates who focus on psycholinguistic research in other areas such as morphology and syntax. Expertise in an additional area such as neurolinguistics, language acquisition, or sociolinguistics is also preferred. The successful candidate should demonstrate excellence in teaching as well as a strong record of research in psycholinguistics. The teaching load is three courses in the fall and three courses in the spring, including introductory courses in linguistics and more specialized courses in Psycholinguistics at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

KU actively encourages applications from members of underrepresented groups in higher education. The successful candidate must be eligible to work in the U.S. by the time of appointment.
