We are now soliciting applications from qualified graduate students for
LINGUIST List Research Assistantships. Be supported through your M.A.
degree while becoming part of a resource which is a mainstay in the field.
Our RAs come into direct, daily contact with the linguistic community
editing announcements for a variety of linguistics-related topics. LINGUIST
List also focuses on web design, where RAs have the opportunity to learn
programs like ColdFusion, Adobe Photoshop, basic UNIX programming and
database design. A third focus of RA work is the development of internet
infrastructure for the discipline, as well as language technology to
support language documentation. Current development projects include:

- The newly redesigned Linguistic Society of America
(LSA) website (http://lsadc.org/)

- The E-MELD (Electronic Metastructure for Endangered Languages Data)
project which develops tools and standards for the digital archiviing
of documentation of endangered languages

- The DATA project, conducted in partnership with the Alaska Native
Language Archive, which is designed to digitize a large body of
material on the Athabascan language Dena'ina

- The LL-MAP project, conducted in partnership with the U. of
Stockholm, which involves the development of an interactive map interface
showing the distribution of language resources and language speakers

- The Multitree project, which will develop a digital library of all
language relationships hypothesized by scholars

In an effort to maintain the international character of the list, we
welcome applications from students outside the USA. Assistantship holders
must have a good command of written English and be degree-seeking students
at a LINGUIST home university (below). A LINGUIST fellow receives a full
tuition waiver (for 18 graduate credit hours per year) plus a 9-month
stipend of approximately $8500. International students should submit
applications before the February 1, 2006. US Citizens may submit until
March 1, 2006.
