Graduate Assistantships and Student Employment
The LINGUIST List, with the support of donations from subscribers and the publishing community, currently provides support for 11 graduate students, who serve as LINGUIST List editors. Graduate assistants are usually enrolled in the Indiana University linguistics program, although some past GAs have been pursuing degrees in computer science, informatics, library science, or a related discipline.
If you are interested in pursuing graduate studies at Indiana University and working at The LINGUIST List, please see the Department of Linguistics site. To see what our graduate students are doing, view the LINGUIST List Student News.
If you're interested in working with The LINGUIST List, but have other commitments during the school year, consider applying for our summer internship program!
Interns will have the opportunity to participate in the daily operations of the LINGUIST List and its related research projects and activities at Indiana University, Department of Linguistics.
Some of the projects interns may work on include:
- Language and Location: A Map Accessibility Project (LL-MAP): This project began as a joint NSF-sponsored project of Eastern Michigan University and Stockholm University. In LL-MAP, language information is integrated with data from the physical and social sciences by means of a Geographical Information System (GIS). Tasks for this project include map-making (using GlobalMapper and ArcGIS software) and using the LL-MAP Scholar's Workbench to style and upload maps.
- MultiTree: The MultiTree project is a digital library of scholarly hypotheses about language relationships and subgroupings. This information is organized in a searchable database with a web interface, and each hypothesis is presented graphically as a diagram of a family tree. Typical tasks for this project include researching language relationship hypotheses and entering this information into the MultiTree database.
- Interns may also work on the General Ontology for Linguistic Description (GOLD), the Lexical Enhancement via the GOLD Ontology (LEGO) project, or languag resource and technology projects related to under-resourced and endangered languages, in addition to assisting with the LINGUIST List mailing list and website.
Internships are generally available for a three-month period between May and August, 40 hours per week, and interns receive a modest stipend. Housing is not provided, although LINGUIST can provide some assistance in locating accommodations. International applicants are encouraged, but must have or obtain a visa that permits them to work in the US.
Keep an eye out for the announcement of our summer internships, which is posted in the fall!Volunteer Opportunities
