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.

The Phonetics Laboratory of the Faculty of Linguistics, Philology and
Phonetics seeks to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on
the project 'Word Joins in real-life speech: a large corpus-based study' with
Professor John Coleman (PI) and Dr Ros Temple.

Candidates should be able to demonstrate experience in the methods of
experimental phonetics and/or speech signal processing which will make a
substantial contribution to the completion of the two linguistic research
components of the project: (1) a study of word-final consonant assimilations,
and (2) a study of word-final "t/d deletion"; both of these are based on the
spoken English audio recordings of the British National Corpus, which we
have digitized and are currently preparing for public release.

Candidates should possess a higher degree in phonetics or in linguistics with
a specialism in phonetics, or another relevant discipline concerned with the
analysis of speech. Excellent IT, literacy and numeracy skills, as well as the
ability to manage one's own research activities within guidelines provided by
senior colleagues, will also be an advantage.

The post is funded by the ESRC and is fixed-term, with an end date of 31
March 2013. The post is full time.

Informal enquires about the post can be made to Professor John Coleman,
