Lecturer in Linguistics

Yale University Department of Linguistics


The Department of Linguistics at Yale University invites applications for a non-renewable lecturer position for the 2020-2021 academic year. We are particularly interested in candidates who have a record of research and can offer graduate and undergraduate courses in phonetics and phonology.

The appointee’s academic responsibilities will consist of teaching four courses during the academic year, advising student research and being fully involved in the intellectual life of the department. In light of the current pandemic, the courses might have to be taught in part or entirely through an online platform such as Zoom, and the course content and its pacing may need to be altered to conform to a non-standard schedule.  

Applicants should include the following items: 

  1. a cover letter describing their research interests, 
  2. a current CV,
  3. evidence regarding teaching qualifications,
  4. two representative pieces of research, and 
  5. the names of two references. 


Review of applications will begin immediately, and will continue until the position is filled. The requirements for the PhD (or equivalent degree) must be completed by the time of appointment.
