 The Department of Linguistics at Northwestern University invites
 applications for a postdoctoral fellowship funded through a
 grant to theUniversity 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 haveanalyzed 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.
