The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to engage in non-discriminatory hiring practices. We urge employers not to discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, 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.

2-year predoctoral research assistantship in prosody and audiovisual prosody

The research group GrEP Prosody Lab at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra
(Barcelona) announces an opening for a 2-year research assistantship
associated to the project The role of tonal alignment and scaling in
conveying pragmatic meaning (FFI2009-10492/FILO), funded by the Spanish
Ministry of Science and Innovation. The goal of the project is to analyze
from an experimental perspective the pragmatic meanings that are conveyed
by prosody, and how these prosodic cues interact with lexical/morphological
and with gestural information in everyday communication.

The responsibilities will include participation in all parts of the
project, including running experiments, write-up and presentation of
results. Preference will be given to applicants with background in acoustic
analysis, experimental design and statistical analysis. Applicants should
have a good command of English and some knowledge of Catalan and Spanish,
or be ready to acquire it. The basic eligibility requirement is a
Bachelor's or Master's degree or equivalent.

The position includes a monthly stipend, coverage by the Social Security
system, and university fees related to doctoral study. The assistantship
also includes the possibility of applying for grants for short-term stays
abroad. Annual renewal of the assistantship will depend on successful
progress in the doctoral program and collaboration on the research project.

For more information please contact Pilar Prieto (see contact information
below) as soon as possible, and no later than July 30, 2011. Interested
candidates are requested to send their CV and a sample writing to her.
