POSITION DESCRIPTION

The University of California, San Diego invites applications for an Assistant Professor (tenure-track) in the broad area of Natural Language Processing. This position will hold a joint appointment in the Department of Linguistics and the Halicioğlu Data Science Institute (HDSI), to begin in Fall 2023.

Data Science is beginning to advance our understanding of society and human behavior in ways that pose grand challenges to our understanding of how humans learn, use, and process natural language. HDSI is pursuing a strategy for advancing Data Science that builds upon its unique strengths in creating interdisciplinary research areas that span multiple disciplines and departments. The Department of Linguistics takes a strong interdisciplinary approach to language research that combines theory, computation, and experimentation. The department plays a central role in the new Computational Social Science (CSS) program within the School of Social Sciences, creating an excellent opportunity to collaborate in bringing together the emerging discipline of Data Science with research challenges in Linguistics, to be led by scholars with strong linguistic, quantitative, and computational skills.

We seek exceptional candidates with a strong record of publications and research in this interdisciplinary area. The selected candidate is expected to teach undergraduate and graduate level courses, as well as mentor students, in both Linguistics and HDSI. They will conduct and publish research and participate in professional activities (e.g., conferences) in the field of Natural Language Processing. They are also expected to participate in department and university service as academic members of the campus community.
