LINGUIST List 20.1518

Tue Apr 21 2009

Jobs: English & Psycholing: PhD student, MPI for Psycholinguistics

Editor for this issue: Matthew Lahrman <mattlinguistlist.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.

The Max Planck Society has funded an International Max Planck Research
School (IMPRS) for Language Sciences starting in September 2009, to
facilitate the collaborative research efforts of language scientists of
four faculties and three major research institutes (Max Planck Institute
for Psycholinguistics, Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and
Behaviour, Centre for Language Studies ) on the campus of Radboud
University Nijmegen. The IMPRS offers an unrivalled training and research
environment in the language sciences, allowing interdisciplinary work of
the highest standard.

Three doctoral studentships are now advertised in any field contributing to
the science of language, from e.g. cognitive neuroscience of language,
psycholinguistics or linguistics. The studentships are renewable, in the
normal case, for up to 3 years. Students will receive a monthly salary
sufficient to cover living costs.

Applicants must have an MA in a relevant field. The medium of the School is
English, and applicants must be able to show evidence of good language
competence. Applicants should study the web pages of the contributing
institutes (see below), and name potential supervisor(s) in the relevant
institutes. They should also indicate in maximal 150 words their research
areas or topics of special interest. Applications should also include a
motivation letter, a vita (with academic grades), and the names and email
addresses of two academic referees who have agreed to write.

Send materials before May 18th 2009 (marked "IMPRS application") to Dr. Els
den Os, IMPRS Coordinator. See contact email below.

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!
