Jobs: Formal & Functional Corpus Annotation: Post Doc, Laboratory EFL

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.

Application deadline: 2011/11/10
Application email: adonabedianinalco.fr
Application reference: EFL-GD1

This is a full-time position, starting on February 1st, 2012
Applications are invited for a one-year position within the project 'The
typology and corpus annotation of information structure and grammatical
relations', coordinated by Amina Mettouchi and Martine Vanhove, within the
Labex project Empirical Foundations of Linguistics.

This position involves interaction with field linguists working on various
language families, in view of testing various annotations of information
structure and grammatical relations in spoken corpora. The candidate will be
expected to (a) work with each member of the project in order to identify the
relevant structures encoded in the language, (b) implement the various coding
solutions devised for each language on a corpus belonging to the members of
the project, (c) synthesize the problems encountered and the solutions found
for all the languages in the project. There is no software development
involved. Details on the project can be found on:
http://web.me.com/aminamettouchi/ISGR_Labex_EFL/

The prerequisite for the position is a PhD in linguistics, on a topic involving
lesser-described languages (including endangered languages, creoles, pidgins
and mixed languages). The PhD thesis and the publications of the candidate
should be proof of her/his competence in working on spoken data gathered
during fieldwork, and their treatment in the form of electronic corpora
(Toolbox, Elan, Praat or other). Competence in prosodic annotation is an
asset, but is not required at the beginning of the project.

When applying, please include: A letter of motivation; a curriculum vitae
(including a list of publications); a website where publications can be found;
the names and email addresses of two referees.
