Jobs: Translation/Ling: Post Doc, U Pompeu Fabra

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. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

The Spanish Ministry of Science & Education (MEC) has published two calls
for applications for junior research positions for 2006-07: the Ramon y
Cajal program (PhDs who obtained their PhD degree 10 years ago max.) and
the Juan de la Cierva (PhDs who obtained their PhD degree 3 years ago
max.). The prerequisites for the candidates and the conditions of the
contracts are described in the following pages of MEC (Spanish and English)
and Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF)(Catalan) and are summarized on the DTF
webpage (http://www.upf.edu/dtf, link at page top):

The Department of Translation and Philology (DTF) at Universitat Pompeu
Fabra plans on being able to incorporate TWO Ramon y Cajal researchers
working on the areas covered by the Department. DTF hosts the following
research groups, one of which the successful Ramon y Cajal candidates
should join:
- Translation, Reception, and Literature
- Centre for the Study of Translation and Discourse (CEDIT)
- Discourse Studies Group (GED)
- Research Group on Language Learning and Language Teaching (GREL)
- Research Group on the Adquisition of Enviromental Languages (ReGAEL)
- Formal Linguistics Research Group (GLIF)
- Computational Linguistics Research Group (GLICOM)

Applications are done directly through the MEC webpage indicated above
(though the application must be printed later and submitted, along with
enclosures, in one of the specified manners). The selection process is
carried out entirely by MEC. Candidates endorsed by MEC will then be able
to opt for one of the two positions offered by DTF. The deadline for
submission is April 3, 2006. For additional information, see
http://www.upf.edu/dtf (link at top of page) or contact Enric VallduvĂ­
(name.lastnameupf.edu; no accents or capitals). If you plan on submitting
an application and are interested in joining DTF, please let us know
through the above address.

The Department of Translation and Philology will also welcome
applications from Juan de la Cierva junior researchers. Their
applications and their research must be connected to one of the following
research projects (each project may endorse only one candidate):
- Integrated architecture for advanced text processing (ARQUITEXT).
P.I.: Toni Badia
- Critical receptive competence in university and high school students:
analysis and proposals for teaching. P.I.: Daniel Cassany
- Design and impact of tools for the development of strategic competence in
the learning of foreign languages in a university context (DEICOMECU).
P.I.: Olga Esteve
- Dialogue genres in political discourse. P.I. : Clara Lorda
- The Stay-abroad Factor in the acquisition of a foreign language(English).
Short term effects and success variables. Contrast with formal instruction.
P.I.: Carmen PĂ©rez

Candidates interested in a Juan de la Cierva contract should contact the
principal investigator of the relevant project immediately
(name.lastnameupf.edu; no accents or capitals), since the actual
application is submitted by UPF. The P.I. must have received all relevant
documents (some in hard copy, some in soft copy; see call info) by March
27, 2006 (before 14:00 GMT).
