The Cornell University Department of Linguistics seeks to recruit a Postdoctoral Research Associate in computational/experimental linguistics, from Fall 2022 through Summer 2024. Candidates should have a PhD in Linguistics or related discipline by the start date. A strong background in programming is required, and interests in sociolinguistics and game design are desirable.

This position is funded for two years by a grant from Cornell University. The Research Associate will receive a salary of $54,835 in the first year with a 3% increase in the second year, along with fringe benefits. There are no teaching obligations, and time is allotted for the associate to pursue independent research interests.

The associate will collaborate with P.I. Sam Tilsen (Linguistics) to design and develop an online system for collecting speech data from remote participants while they play a map-navigation game. The system will subsequently be used by the associate and collaborators to conduct longitudinal experiments on the evolution of speech behavior in small networks of speakers. The associate and the P.I. will supervise a team of undergraduate web developers and research assistants over the course of the project.

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, cover letter, one or two writing samples, and names and email addresses of three external referees. Candidates are invited to provide a statement of Contribution to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Review of applications will begin immediately and the position will be filled when a suitable candidate is identified. Inquiries can be made via e-mail to Heather Russell at lingdept@cornell.edu.


Diversity and Inclusion are a part of Cornell University's heritage. We are a recognized employer and educator valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities.
