Description:

The University of Zurich invites applications for an assistant professorship with tenure track in descriptive and anthropological linguistics.

The successful candidate has an extensive background in fieldwork, with particular emphasis on typologically informed linguistic analysis (e.g., grammar writing), digital language documentation (e.g., corpus development), and theoretically motivated research on the social and cultural conditions of language diversification and / or language use. We expect the successful candidate to participate in interdisciplinary research projects, especially within the framework of Switzerland's National Center of Competence in Research (NCCR) Evolving Language and in collaboration with quantitatively-oriented researchers.

Candidates are expected to have an outstanding academic track record and a PhD degree in hand at the time of application. Teaching may be carried out in English, non-German speaking candidates are expected to acquire a working knowledge of German within a reasonable period of time. The University of Zurich is an equal opportunities employer and in particular strives to increase the gender diversity in leading positions. Female researchers are particularly encouraged to apply.
