Editor for this issue: Vanessa Manion <vanessalinguistlist.org>

The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards. Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

This announcement was accompanied by a donation to the LINGUIST List!

University or Organization: University of Wisconsin
Department: Communicative Disorders
Job Rank: Post Doc
Specialty Areas: Language Acquisition; Phonetics; Phonology


A post-doctoral fellowship is available on a study of cross-linguistic
phonological acquisition (see http://ling.osu.edu/~edwards for a detailed
description of the project). The post-doctoral position is located in the
Department of Communicative Disorders at the University of Wisconsin in Madison,
WI. The traineeship, funded by a National Institutes of Health training grant,
will be available in September, 2005 (with some flexibility in the start date).
The position requires that the candidate be a US citizen or have a green card.
The University of Wisconsin has a strong cognitive science faculty and the Waisan
Center at UW offers post-docs a series of lectures and seminars and the
opportunity to interact with other post-docs, doctoral students, and faculty in
a multi-disciplinary environment.

The post-doc will be directly supervised by Dr. Jan Edwards to work on a project
that is going to run jointly at two sites - the University of Wisconsin (with
Dr. Jan Edwards) and Ohio State University (with Dr. Mary Beckman). The
post-doc will be based at the University of Wisconsin, but will also be a
liaison between the two sites and can expect to travel to Columbus, OH about 6
times/year. One focus of the position will be to work out a system for reliable
transcription of lingual obstruents across four languages (Cantonese, English,
Greek, and Japanese) which have different category boundaries for these sounds.
The post-doc will also be expected to develop his or her own original research
related to this project. Applicants should have strong experimental phonetic
skills. Knowledge of Praat and R is helpful, but not essential.

For more information on the research project and the role of the postdoctoral
fellow, please contact Dr. Jan Edwards at edwards.212osu.edu
