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:

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

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

3 - 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

4 - 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

5 - 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.

program has particular strengths in formal syntax, documentary linguistics, and
language technology. The M.A. curriculum offers a solid foundation for further
study in linguistics - well over half of Eastern Michigan M.A. candidates go on
to Ph.D. programs in linguistics. EMU is situated in Ypsilanti, MI (about 5
