Research Assistant needed for work on new/village sign languages

The Sign Language Research Lab at the University of Haifa has been
investigating a newly emerging sign language among the Al-Sayyid Bedouins.
Recently, we have begun to investigate additional village sign languages
found in a variety of different communities within Israel. These and other
projects seek to gain insight into the ways in which a grammatical language
emerges without a model in a small community with a high incidence of
deafness, and to compare and contrast different linguistic and social
variables across communities. A Research Assistant for this project is
needed for fieldwork, coding, and analysis of data at all levels of
structure, specifically, phonology, morphology, syntax, and prosody. Some
technical and administrative duties are also included.

Qualifications
We seek applicants with the following qualifications:
- Bachelor's or Master's Degree in Linguistics
- Knowledge of a sign language or willingness to study sign language
intensively
- Good interpersonal (and intercultural) skills
- Knowledge of Hebrew and/or Arabic is an advantage (but not a requirement)

This Research Assistantship can be integrated with MA or PhD projects.

Conditions of Employment
The initial employment period is one year, beginning either September,
October 2011 or January 2012, with the possibility of extension for a
longer period. The salary offered for full-time employment is between
$1,200 and $1,500 a month, depending on the applicant's qualifications.

research papers can be sent to Wendy Sandler at the email address below.
