The LINGUIST List has a limited number of internships available during summer
2008, tenable in the LINGUIST offices in Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Interns will primarily work on National Science Foundation-funded projects
(information below). Interns also have an opportunity to participate in the
normal workings of the LINGUIST List and to learn about the interaction between
linguistics, computers and research, working alongside LINGUIST's regular staff
of both linguistics and computer science students.
Application packages should include a brief letter describing your interest in
and suitability for an internship, as well as your resume.
You may send these via email to Anthony Aristar, co-Moderator of The LINGUIST
List, at aristarlinguistlist.org.
Project work interns may be involved with includes work on three projects funded
by the National Science Foundation:
GOLDComm: pursued in collaboration with the University of Washington, this
project is designed to offer the average linguist access to large amounts of
structured and searchable linguistic data by further developing the General
Ontology for Linguistic Description (GOLD) and intelligent GOLD-aware searching.
MultiTree: this project will create a digital library of scholarly hypotheses
about language relationships. Each hypothesis is presented graphically as an
interactive hyperbolic display of a family tree, accompanied by information on
all of the languages involved and the authors and bibliographical sources of the
LL-MAP: Language and Location: A Map Annotation Project. This joint project
of Eastern Michigan University and Stockholm University is designed to integrate
language information with data from the physical and social sciences by means of
a Geographical Information System (GIS). The Institute for Geospatial Research
and Education (IGRE) is also helping in the project development.
Interns will work 40 hours a week and receive a stipend of $1200 US per
