The Department of Linguistics at Northwestern University invites
applications for a full-time non-renewable Mellon 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, 2003. 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. Candidates
with research interests in the languages of US Hispanic/Latino
populations or languages of the Islamic world are especially welcome.
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 a
one-quarter lecture course and a one- quarter seminar per year, and
present one colloquium per year.

For fullest consideration, candidates should ensure that their
application arrives in the Department before January 15, 2003.
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.
