The Department of Linguistics at Stanford University is seeking applicants for an open rank position in Sociolinguistics, beginning September 1, 2022. Applicants will be expected to teach courses in Sociolinguistics at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, and to maintain an active research program. We seek someone who complements our current strengths in quantitative approaches to variation and social meaning, while sharing our commitment to fieldwork and to analysis based on rich data. We value engagement with social theory and style, and we particularly welcome applicants whose research is in any of the following areas: race and ethnicity, morphosyntactic variation, child language acquisition, and variation in discourse and interaction. We value candidates whose research engages with multiple subfields of linguistics and applies methodologically rigorous empirical work to significant theoretical questions.

Applicants should submit the following: cover letter; CV; research statement (not to exceed two pages); statement of teaching interests and philosophy (not to exceed one page); and up to three representative samples of published or unpublished work. Candidates at the junior level should also request three reference letters to be submitted on their behalf via Academic Jobs Online. Candidates at the tenured level may be contacted about references later in the application process.

For full consideration, materials must be received by Wednesday, October 31, 2021. Review of applications will begin on that date and will continue until the position is filled.
