Assistant Professor of Computational Linguistics, Department of Linguistics
Georgetown University: Main Campus: College of Arts & Sciences: Linguistics

Location: Washington, DC
Open Date: Sep 19, 2023

The Department of Linguistics at Georgetown University in Washington, DC invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Computational Linguistics, beginning in August 2024.

We seek candidates with a commitment to excellence in research and teaching in any area of Computational Linguistics or NLP. The candidate will be expected to lead a vibrant research program, and teach and mentor students at the undergraduate, master's, and Ph.D. levels - including graduate students within the computational linguistics concentration.

Of particular interest for this position are linguistically-grounded computational approaches to interaction (broadly construed). This includes (for example) research in spoken/signed language processing, dialogue systems, LLMs, and language learning. Also highly valued is research involving underrepresented groups and languages/varieties (including low-resource NLP, as well as bias and ethics in language technologies).

The new hire will join a computational linguistics concentration with faculty who specialize in syntax, semantics, and discourse processing in text. The Linguistics Department at Georgetown is committed to a diversity of perspectives on language, and houses concentrations in computational linguistics as well as theoretical, socio-, and applied linguistics.

A Ph.D. in Linguistics, Computer Science, or a related field is required. Applicants must have completed all Ph.D. requirements by the time of the appointment.
