Boston University Department of Linguistics invites applications for a one-year position as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Linguistics with a specialization in phonetics and phonology, for the Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 semesters. The teaching load will be 2 courses per semester.

Boston University is an AAU institution with a rich tradition of inclusion and social justice. We are proud that we were the first American university to award a PhD to a woman (1877) and that Martin Luther King Jr. received his PhD here (1955). The Linguistics Program is committed to the College of Arts & Sciences Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan (https://www.bu.edu/cas/about/diversity-inclusion/) for building a diverse, inclusive, and accessible environment for all. Applications from women, minorities, and candidates from other underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged. Recognizing that diversity of experience deepens the intellectual endeavor, we are dedicated to increasing the participation of all talented students, including those from underrepresented groups, in the study of language and are particularly interested in scholars who can contribute to the diversity and inclusiveness of the academic community, at BU and beyond, through their research, teaching, and service.

Organization

The Difference Is Our DNA

What compelled the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to award Boston University a grant to fight newborn mortality in Zambia? Why did Martin Luther King, Jr. adopt BU as a place where he could hone his message of justice and equality? And what is the catalyst that prompts 32,557 students from 135 countries to call BU their home every semester? It’s in our DNA: an inherent desire in each of our students, faculty, and staff to vigorously and dauntlessly pursue knowledge—and embrace the unlimited possibilities that come with it.

A Community Unlike Any Other

As you can see below, it takes people, ideas, and a little luck (Boston, you’re our town) to make BU what it is today: one of the most dynamic universities in the world.

Celebrated thinkers: On any given day, students will find themselves mesmerized by Nobel Prize winners, a poet laureate, and the first biomedical engineer ever to receive a MacArthur Foundation “Genius Award,” among others.

Extraordinary teaching: When a classroom starts to percolate with new ideas, it’s because our faculty of scholars and accomplished practitioners know how to ignite students’ imaginations. That’s why we reward our best teachers with BU’s most prestigious honor: The Metcalf Cup and Prize.

Groundbreaking research: With faculty dedicated to a creative, interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, BU has become a leading global research institution—propelled forward by over $350 million a year in sponsored program revenue.

World-class students: Elite students from all 50 states and 135 countries pursue higher education on BU campuses in Boston and at programs in L.A., D.C., and more than 30 other cities on six continents.

A city within a city: Today, 80% of our undergrads live on campus, which could explain the 525 student activity groups alone.

The greatest college town in the world: Boston. ’Nuff said.
