Edinburgh University expects to appoint a post-doctoral researcher to
work with Dr. Alice Turk on a three-year research project funded by
the UK Arts and Humanities Research Board. The goals of the project
are 1) to investigate the role of sub-lexical constituents (e.g. feet
and morphemes) in speech through a series of production experiments,
and 2) to test a theory of prosodic boundary realisation by examining
the effects of rate of speech and phrasal stress on word boundary
markers. The requirement for the position is a PhD in phonetics,
phonology, or related field. Desirable attributes are a demonstrated
interest in prosodic constituent structure, experience in experimental
design and phonetic segmentation, statistical skills, command of the
prosodic phonology literature, and excellence in writing.

The appointment would be from 6 January, 2003 and would last for three
years. The starting salary will be in the range of 17,626 - 19, 681
pounds sterling per annum (full time) depending on experience.

Those interested in applying are encouraged to make informal contact
with Alice Turk ( as soon as possible. Further
particulars and application procedures will be available through the
University's Personnel Office
(, to whom all applications
should be addressed. The closing date for applications is June 30,
