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.

Post-doctoral research fellow in language acquisition

University of Tromsø

The Center for Advanced Study in Theoretical Linguistics (CASTL) at the
University of Tromsø currently seeks a post-doctoral research fellow in the
field of language acquisition. The period of appointment is three years.

CASTL is a Norwegian Center of Excellence funded by the Research Council of
Norway and the University of Tromsø. The core scientific group of the
center currently consists of 6 senior researchers, 6
researchers/post-doctoral research fellows and 17 PhD students. There are
several other researchers and PhD students at the University of Tromsø who
are connected to CASTL as affiliates, so that the CASTL community today
consists of about 50 people. The research group in acquisition currently
includes a full-time professor, two part-time professors, and three
post-doctoral research fellows.

CASTL's primary research activity is within generative grammar with a focus
on syntax, phonology, and language acquisition. The successful applicant
will be working in the area of language acquisition in collaboration with
other members of the acquisition group at CASTL and the University of
Tromsø. Research projects may be proposed both within mono- and bilingual
language acquisition as well as second language acquisition in children.
Applications whose research interacts closely with the ongoing language
acquisition projects at CASTL will be preferred. Information about ongoing
research at CASTL can be found at

The prerequisite for the position is a doctoral degree, either a Norwegian
PhD in linguistics or an equivalent foreign doctoral degree. We are seeking
a person who is willing to engage himself/herself in the ongoing
development of his/her discipline and the university as a whole. Experience
in experimental works, teaching, and/or supervising students are plus.
While this is not a teaching position, involvement in - and at times
responsibility for - research seminars will be expected.

Applications will be assessed by an expert committee. The main emphasis
will be placed on assessment of the submitted scholarly works and the
research proposal.
