Leadership, in the School of Education at Syracuse University invite applications for a full time
tenure-track or tenured position in American Sign Language to develop a program in American Sign
Language, as rooted in the linguistic program in Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics and inclusive
education in the School of Education beginning Fall 2020 semester.
The successful candidate

have a research program that uses rigorous methods of linguistic analysis. We are particularly
interested in receiving applications from candidates who use formal grammar in their research of sign
languages, with a specialization in ASL.
The candidate will be expected to contribute to the
Linguistic Studies Program at Syracuse University, as well as the Inclusive Education and Disability
Studies programs in the School of Education. This hire will add depth and breadth to Syracuse
University’s strong research emphasis in the domains of general linguistics, ASL, inclusive education,
and disability studies.
The candidates will show evidence of:
- High quality scholarship
and the potential to build a vigorous program of funded research,
- Teaching qualifications at the
undergraduate and graduate levels, and
- Promise of excellence in engaging graduate and
undergraduate students in research.
Responsibilities include maintaining an active program of
research, teaching and advising at the graduate and undergraduate levels, and service to the university.
Applicants for the position should have a Ph.D. in an area of linguistics and specialization
in, or experience with, American Sign Language. Additional expertise in one or more related fields, such
as another sign language, acquisition of a sign language, psycholinguistics, inclusive education, or
disability studies, is strongly preferred. Competence in ASL will be an asset.
