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: marandinlinguist.jussieu.fr
Application reference: EFL-ANA1-ANA2

Applicants are invited to work in a 10-year project 'Empirical foundations of
linguistics'. The candidate will work in Strand 2 : Experimental Grammar in a
cross linguistic perspective. This is a full-time position.

The successful applicant will have to document qualifications in
linguistics/psycholinguistics at the Master's level. Applicants will be
assessed by an expert committee. The main emphasis of the assessment
will be on the applicant's potential for research, as evident from: Master's
thesis or equivalent, other scholarly works and project description.

Please join with your application: CV; two names of referent (with email
address); web address with publications.

The thesis will involve the investigation of crosslinguistic differences in
anaphor resolution processes. The relevance of discourse structure, word
order as well as prosody in particular with respect to information structure will
be a central concern of the research. A central issue in those studies will be
the close comparison of crosslinguistic differences with highly parallel
materials across a variety of languages (e.g., German, French, English,
Portuguese, Spanish). Most experiments will be using eyetracking techniques
such as the visua.
