Assistant Professor (Tenure-Track), Computational Linguistics

University of British Columbia

The Department of Linguistics at the University of British Columbia invites applications for a tenure-track position in Computational Linguistics to begin July 1, 2022, with appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Linguistics, Computer Science or a closely related field and have demonstrable expertise in speech technology, in the context of speech and language processing or computational linguistics. We especially encourage applicants who embrace a multifaceted approach to speech processing, for example combining methods and insights from speech technology with more traditional linguistic inquiry. The candidate will have a record of or potential for high-quality research and teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels in speech technology (incorporating machine learning), plus at least one of the following areas: NLP; computational phonology, phonetics or morphology; computational approaches to low-resource languages.

The Department of Linguistics at UBC has recently established a new professional Master of Data Science program dedicated to Computational Linguistics. The successful candidate will teach and supervise graduate students in the MDS-CL and Linguistics programs, as well as in the undergraduate Linguistics and Speech Sciences programs. Experience in the tech industry is an asset but not a requirement. This position also offers the opportunity for membership in multiple interdisciplinary groups -- including the Artificial Intelligence Methods for Scientific Impact (AIM-SI) research cluster (part of the Centre for AI Decision-making and Action), as well as UBC’s Language Sciences Institute.
