Subject: Correction: Research Center on Multilingualism- Job announcement

Dear colleagues,

In the job announcement posted last week, a wrong date has been
given for the deadline for application. I apologize! Here is the
same text but with the correct date.

Jurgen M. Meise

A new research center will be established at the Univeristy of
Hamburg. Please find below a short description of the Center and a
job announcement for one of its research projects.


1 Post-doctoral researcher (full position)
1 Post-graduate researcher (half position)

In the research project on "Simultaneous and Successive Acquisition of
Bilingualism". This project will investigate similarities and
differences in grammatical development between bilingual first
language acquisition, monolingual first language acquisition, and
adult second language acquisition. It is one of 13 projects of the
Collaborative Research Center on Multilingualism funded by the
Deutsche Forschungsge-meinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) to
be established at the University of Hamburg as of July 1st, 1999.

Pending final decision by the DFG, both positions will begin on this
date and will extend for a period of three years. The post-doctoral
candidate will be expected to co-direct this research group together
with J.M. Meisel. The post-doctoral position can be renewed for one
three-year period. The salary of the post-doctoral researcher
corresponds to that of an assistant professor in German universities
(BAT IIa). The post-graduate researcher must hold an M.A. (or
equivalent). He or she will receive half of the BAT IIa salary for a
work load of appr. 19 hours per week and will be expected to complete
a doctoral dissertation on a topic related to the topic of the
research project.

Requirements sought are: good knowledge of syntactic theory
(Principles and Parameters Theory and possibly of the Minimalist
Program), experience with language acquisition research, and good
knowledge of at least two of the following languages: German, French,
Spanish, Portuguese, Basque. Also desirable would be familiarity with
speech processing research and/or experience with corpus analysis
and/or computer skills.
