Position for a two-year Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in linguistics,
starting in fall 2001 at a starting salary of $51,000. We are looking
for a theoretical phonologist with a strong research and teaching area
in a non-IndoEuropean language. It is important that the person be
able to contribute classes that will be of interest to other units in
the college, such as cognitive science, sociology/anthropology,
education, computer science. An interest in experimental phonetics is
a plus, though not a necessity. An interest in linguistic diversity in
the United States is a plus, though not a necessity. During the first
year of the position, the fellow will teach two courses and conduct
research. During the second year of the position, the fellow will
teach three courses and conduct research. We have a phonetics
laboratory with speech analysis equipment and a soundproof booth. A
phonetics laboratory coordinator runs that lab and will act as
assistant to the fellow. 

To apply, send a c.v., the names and e-mail addresses of three
recommenders, and a copy of one publication to:
