Linguistics and Communication at the Human Communication and Information Science Division of the Graduate School of Intercultural Studies invites applications for a tenure-track position in General Linguistics or Applied Linguistics at the rank of Lecturer or Assistant Professor. Successful applicants should have the ability to teach and conduct research in theoretical General or Applied Linguistics and in Japanese, English, or other languages that will enable them to contribute to their research areas. We would welcome applicants with a secondary strength in area(s) related to Sociolinguistics or Anthropological Linguistics, particularly in connection to Teaching Japanese to Speakers of Other Languages. It is expected that these secondary areas will enable the appointed person to extend their research into issues of language and social inequality in the globalizing new economy.
Under the above mentioned tenure-track system, the term of employment is five years from the date of employment. During this period, a newly employed Lecturer or Assistant Professor will receive an interim review in the third year of employment, followed by a tenure review in the fifth year of employment. If his/her research record and other relevant aspects are recognized as exceptional, the person will be awarded tenured status from the university (i.e., guaranteed employment until mandatory retirement) with a possibility of promotion to Associate Professorship.
Field of Specialty:
Applicants should have teaching and research expertise in theoretical General or Applied Linguistics in Japanese, English, or other languages that will enable them to contribute to these research areas. Applicants who also possess expertise in fields such as Sociolinguistics or Anthropological Linguistics would be welcome, and particularly those with a connection to the field of Teaching Japanese to Speakers of Other Languages. It is expected that these secondary areas will enable the appointed person to extend their research into issues of language and social inequality in the globalizing new economy.
