Jobs: Language Acquisition: Lab Coordinator, UCLA

Editor for this issue: Christy Bird <christylinguistlist.org>

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.

We are looking for a curious, dynamic and organized person to work as
full-time Laboratory Coordinator for the Language Acquisition Laboratory at
UCLA Department of Linguistics.

Responsibilities include organizing and managing subject recruitment,
interacting with parents and children, aiding in experimental design,
testing infants, maintaining data spreadsheets and facilitating
undergraduate and graduate research projects.

This is a full-time administrative position with benefits; a commitment for
at least two years is required. The position starts July 1, 2011 and offers
flexible hours. Salary begins at $38,880 per year, and is commensurate with
experience. UCLA is an equal opportunity employer.

The person must have experience working with children between 0-6 years and
their parents. A degree (B.A. or M.A.) in Linguistics/Psychology or related
field, and research experience with infants and language acquisition is
highly desirable. Proficiency in Spanish would also be great. This position

previous coordinators have gone to excellent doctoral programs. Details of
previous research projects are available on the web pages of Nina Hyams,

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
