The Department of Linguistics at the University of Rochester invites applications for a one year non-tenure track appointment as a visiting assistant professor to begin July 1, 2013. We seek candidates with a record of research in syntax, and a record of excellence in teaching. Evidence of interest in interdisciplinary work is desirable. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in hand before the appointment begins.

We seek candidates who are likely to benefit by those connections. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience.
