Message 2: General Linguistics; Fulbright researcher at Chemnitz U. in Germany

Fulbright researcher - short-term posting

The Department of English Linguistics at Chemnitz University of Technology
is looking for a Fulbright resesearcher who is interested in joining our
research group. The Department provides a lively working environment.
Alongside the normal teaching activities there is a wide range of
projects, involving corpora, language varieties, computer-assisted
language learning and the use of modern multimedia techniques. Members of
the Department have been responsible for the East African component of the
International Corpus of English and contribute a research project on
'Learner Behaviour in the Internet Grammar' to a large-scale University
programme on 'Multimedia in Everyday Life', funded by the Deutsche
Forschungsgesellschaft, Germany's principal research funding body.

The ideal candidate should have similar research interests, particularly
in the areas of language and culture or computer applications in language
learning and analysis. Although the working language in the department is
English, survival German is necessary. We can guarantee a congenial
working atmosphere, a personal student assistant, a modern office with
internet access and modern computer equipment and an inspiring teaching
atmosphere in relatively small groups.

The city of Chemnitz is in the middle of an energetic programme of
rebuilding and renovation. In the inner suburbs the largest concentration
of Jugendstil houses anywhere in Germany is being restored to its former
elegance. Ample accomodation is available in the neighbourhood of the
Humanities Faculty, a little south of the city centre. There is good
public transport, and Chemnitz is only about an hour's train-ride from
both Dresden and Leipzig. The surrounding countryside is pleasantly wooded
and peppered with splendid castles, and in the Erzgebirge to the South
there is a wealth of dramatic scenery and wild-life, as well as villages
that still retain many of their ancient traditions.

Interested candidates should send or e-mail a CV and letter of application
to us as soon as possible, so that Fulbright applications for 2000/2001
can be supported from the receiving end.
