Position description

University of California, Los Angeles, Department of Anthropology invites applications for a tenure track, open-rank position in linguistic anthropology at the rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor; applicant must have Ph.D. in hand at time of application. We welcome applicants across disciplines whose research engages with the study of language use in context, and we are open to all areas of scholarship within linguistic anthropology. Preference will be given to applicants with active, ethnographically-grounded research programs that center language analysis, and who have experience with teaching and advising students in linguistic anthropology. We welcome candidates whose experience in teaching, research, or community service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence.

For earliest consideration, please submit your application at UCLA Academic Recruit by January 11, 2024 at: https://recruit.apo.ucla.edu/JPF09020. After the initial review date, new applications will only be considered if the position has not yet been filled. Please include electronic versions of: 1) an application cover letter; 2) curriculum vitae; 3) names and email addresses for three referees; 4) brief (1-2 pages each) research, teaching, and EDI statements (UCLA requires all applicants to submit a Statement on Contributions to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion; https://equity.ucla.edu/programs-resources/faculty-search-process/faculty-search-committee-resources/sample-guidance/); and 5) reference check authorization release form.

For further information please contact Dr. Erin Debenport, Dept. of Anthropology, UCLA at erindebenport@ucla.edu. Appointment begins July 1, 2024.

The posted UC salary scales set the minimum pay determined by rank and step at appointment. See Table 1 at https://www.ucop.edu/academic-personnel-programs/_files/2023-24/oct-2023-acad-salary-scales/t1.pdf. The salary range for this position is $74,600 - $197,100. Off-scale salaries and other components of pay, i.e. salary that is higher than the published system-wide salary at the designated rank and step, are offered when necessary to meet competitive conditions. See campus compensation page for additional information.

The University of California is committed to creating and maintaining a community dedicated to the advancement, application, and transmission of knowledge and creative endeavors through academic excellence, where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in a safe and secure environment, free of violence, harassment, bullying and other demeaning behavior, discrimination, exploitation, or intimidation. With this commitment as well as a commitment to addressing all forms of academic misconduct, UCLA conducts targeted employment reference checks for finalists to whom departments or other hiring units would like to extend formal offers of appointment into Academic Senate faculty positions. The targeted employment reference checks involve contacting the finalists' current and prior places of employment to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University's Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UCLA requires all applicants for Academic Senate faculty positions to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled "Authorization to Release Information" into RECRUIT as part of their application. If the applicant does not include the signed authorization to release information with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete. As with any incomplete application, the application will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists (i.e., those to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer) considered for Academic Senate faculty positions will be subject to targeted employment reference checks.
