LINGUIST List 18.1064

Mon Apr 09 2007

Jobs: General Ling, Cog Sci: Post-bac Research Fellow, U of Maryland

Editor for this issue: Svetlana Aksenova <svetlanalinguistlist.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 at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Subject: General Linguistics, Cognitive Science: Post-bac Research Fellow, University of Maryland, MD, USA


University or Organization: University of Maryland

Description:

As part of a new initiative in undergraduate research, the Department of
Linguistics at the University of Maryland is pleased to announce the second
year of the Baggett Fellowship Program, which offers intensive year-long
research experiences for students who are US citizens or permanent
residents who have completed a bachelors degree.

One-year Baggett Fellowships are full-time positions intended for
individuals with a BA or BS degree who are interested in gaining
significant research experience in an active interdisciplinary environment
before pursuing graduate study in some area of linguistics or cognitive
science. Applicants should be US citizens or permanent residents, and
should have completed a BA or BS degree or equivalent by the time of
appointment (Summer or Fall 2006). There are no restrictions on where the
fellow received the bachelor's degree. One or two fellowship positions are
available for the 2007-2008 year. Salary is competitive, with benefits
included.

The Department of Linguistics has well-integrated research groups in
theoretical linguistics, psycholinguistics, and computational linguistics
that are engaged in research on a wide variety of areas of language,
ranging from acoustics to semantics, in children and adults, in both
typical and atypical populations. In addition to its expertise in
theoretical linguistics, the department has outstanding facilities for
multidisciplinary research on language, including MEG and EEG
brain-recording facilities, eye-tracking labs, an infant lab and an
on-campus lab preschool, plus tools for a variety of other experimental and
computational approaches. Information on the department can be found at
http://www.ling.umd.edu.

Applicants should submit (i) a cover letter, describing relevant experience
and interests, (ii) a current CV, (iii) names of 3 potential references,
and (iv) a writing sample. Fuller information can be found on the Baggett
Fellows web page. All materials should be sent electronically to Jeff Lidz
(jlidzumd.edu).

Review of applications will begin immediately, and will continue until the
positions are filled. However, for best consideration, completed
applications should be received by April 30th. Prospective fellows should
feel free to send a preliminary letter of interest ahead of the completed
application.

Prospective fellows who are currently applying to graduate programs should
indicate this in their application and notify Dr Lidz if they accept an
offer from a graduate program and intend to withdraw their application.

Application Deadline: 30-Apr-2007 (Open until filled)

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such can 
receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit 
organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against 
your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more 
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift 
you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human 
resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns 
to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the 
value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment 
to check if your company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
