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.

for a period of two academic years, beginning September 1, 2006. 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

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, 2006. Applications by e-mail will
not be accepted. The application should 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.

E-mail inquiries should be directed to mellonling.northwestern.edu. The web
page for the Department is: http://www.wcas.northwestern.edu/linguistics.

Northwestern University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer, and
applications from minority and women candidates are especially welcome. The
fellowship is open to non-US citizens, as long as the necessary permit to work
in the US is in hand prior to September 1, 2006.
