The Department of Linguistics at the University of Alberta is inviting
applications for a graduate student research assistantship position,
beginning September 2006, on a field project to document an endangered
Mexican indigenous language. Participation in the project will involve work
with native language consultants on campus and in the field in Mexico.
Further details of the project can be found at
http://www.arts.ualberta.ca/~totonaco

These assistantships are designed to provide talented applicants with
stable funding for the duration of their studies and to facilitate their
involvement in the academic life of the Department. Students will have the
opportunity to present the results of individual research at conferences
and, where appropriate, will be encouraged to publish their results in
professional venues.

Preference will be given to applicants with a strong background in
linguistics, preferably at the graduate level, and to those with some
training in linguistic field methods. Competence in Spanish is a
necessity. Although all applicants will be considered, we are particularly
interested in recruiting students to work in the following areas:
a) phonology/phonetics;
b) first-language acquisition;
c) computational applications for field linguistics

Interested applicants should contact:

Full application for admissions to the programme should be received by the
Department of Linguistics by January 15, 2005. For more information on
