Subject: Applied Ling: Postdoctoral fellowship at Northwestern U, IL, USA


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, 2001. 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 recent Ph.D.'s 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 also 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 give one colloquium per year.

For fullest consideration, candidates should ensure that their
application arrives in the Department before *December 15, 2000*. The
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 teaching qualifications.
