Subject: Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship at Northwestern University

We are pleased to announce that the Mellon Fellowship, previously
advertised on LINGUIST as 'contingent on funding', has now been
officially authorized. Also, please note that the new application
deadline is February 1, 1999.


The Department of Linguistics at Northwestern University invites
applications for a postdoctoral fellowship funded through a grant to the
University from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The fellowship is for
a period of two academic years, beginning September 1, 1999. In
accordance with the fellowship guidelines, all requirements for the
Ph.D. must be completed prior to the start of the fellowship period. We
are seeking candidates in any subfield of linguistics who have analyzed
primary data (e.g., experimental data, field data, or natural language
corpora) in order to address theoretical issues. Preference will be
given to candidates whose research interests are interdisciplinary and
mesh with those of the current faculty.

Salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications. The
position provides funds for computer facilities and professional travel.
Mellon postdoctoral fellows are expected to participate fully in
Northwestern's interdisciplinary research environment, teach two
quarter-length courses per year, and present one colloquium per year.

application should include the candidate's CV (indicating an e-mail
address), statements of research and teaching interests, teaching
evaluations (if available), and reprints or other written work.
(Finalists will be asked to submit a copy of the dissertation, or
completed portions thereof, at a later date; it is not necessary to do
so at this time.) Candidates should arrange to have 3-4 letters of
reference sent directly to the search committee by the application
deadline; if possible, one of the letters should specifically address
the applicant's qualifications as a teacher.

Send all materials to:

	Mellon Search Committee
	Department of Linguistics
	Northwestern University
	2016 Sheridan Road
	Evanston, IL 60208-4090
