Jobs: Non-Colonial African Language: Two Post Doc Positions, Rutgers U

Editor for this issue: Christy Bird <christylinguistlist.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 Department of Linguistics at Rutgers University in New Brunswick has
two half-year fellowships for postdoctoral residence at Rutgers University,
one for Spring, 2011 and one for either Fall, 2011 or Spring, 2012. All
applicants must have a Ph.D. in hand before their residency and must be
native speakers of a non-Colonial language of Africa. These postdoctoral
positions are funded by the NSF-supported African Anaphora Project
(Afranaph) and Afranaph fellows will be expected to spend at least 20 hours
per week working on the project. Preference will be given to applicants
within five years of the completion of their degrees, but interested
candidates with more experience are encouraged to apply. Successful
applicants will be those who most closely fit the needs of the project. The
six months of support includes a stipend of approximately $20,000 and funds
to cover round-trip travel expenses from the candidate's country of origin.
Further details are to be posted at http://www.africananaphora.rutgers.edu
on the 'News and Events' page.

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, three letters of
reference, a cover letter that names those writing in support, supporting
documents, such as essays in progress or published work (limited to no more
than two), and a short statement including a summary of research interests.
Applicants who do not have a Ph.D. when applying, but who expect to have
their Ph.D. in hand before the fellowship begins, should include a letter
from their advisor concerning their expected date of completion.
Applications received before March 7, 2010 are assured consideration, but
we will continue to accept applications until both positions have been
filled. All applications, letters of reference and materials should be sent
to the address below. Electronic submissions can be sent to
safirruccs.rutgers.edu, with 'Afranaph Postdoc Application' in the subject
