Assistant Professor of Multilingualism – LatinX Cluster

The University of Oregon’s Department of Linguistics invites applications for a tenure-track position of Assistant Professor in Linguistics, to begin in the fall of 2024. We seek candidates specializing in multilingualism addressed from a strengths-based multicompetence perspective. A successful candidate will have an established program of research on multilingualism/plurilingualism and second language learning or second language education. We are open to specializations in any subfield that is related to the analysis of multilingualism in the individual. We especially welcome candidates who specialize in the analysis of second language learning and teaching with a focus on the maintenance and/or revitalization of Indigenous languages of Latin America.

We particularly welcome applications from scholars who are members of Indigenous language communities or from other populations historically underrepresented in the academy, and/or whose life experience would contribute unique perspectives. Similarly, we seek applicants who will contribute to excellence in teaching students from diverse backgrounds at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
