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 the Ph.D. in hand by the time of the appointment.
