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.

Description:

Applications are invited for one two-year Postdoctoral Research Fellowship
within the Language and Culture Research Group of the Cairns Institute,
James Cook University, to work as part of a team with Professor Alexandra
Y. Aikhenvald and Professor R.M.W. Dixon, within the framework of their
joint project 'The grammar of knowledge: a cross-linguistic view of
evidentials and epistemiological expressions'. The position is to commence
on 1st May 2011, or soon thereafter.

Applicants should have been awarded their doctorate within the last five
years. They should have experience of linguistic fieldwork and will,
ideally, have already completed a grammatical description of a language
that has not previously been described (not their native language) in terms
of basic linguistic theory. The University may consider cases in which the
period since the award of the doctorate is in excess of five years due to
special circumstances. Applications will be considered from candidates
whose thesis is currently under examination. Applicants must hold a
doctoral degree or have equivalent qualifications at the date of
appointment. A Fellowship will not normally be awarded to an applicant who
already holds an appointment within the University. The successful
applicant will work as part of a team with Professor Alexandra Y.
Aikhenvald, Professor R.M.W. Dixon, and other members of Language and
Culture Research Group. Ideally, we are looking for a Postdoctoral Research
Fellow who will work on a language from South America, or the New Guinea
region. However, applicants with primary interest in another area will be
considered. The appointee is expected to undertake extensive fieldwork. The
choice of language will be made after discussion between the successful
applicant and Professors Aikhenvald and Dixon.

It is essential to enter in contact with Professor Alexandra Aikhenvald
(Alexandra.Aikhenvaldjcu.edu.au, a.y.aikhenvaldlive.com) prior to
submitting an application. Application forms are available at the URL
below. Applicants must provide a full statement of qualifications and
career, a statement systematically addressing the Selection Criteria, a
completed Summary Application Form (available on the link), the name and
addresses of three persons who have consented to act as referees and
address it to the Human Resources Advisor, Faculty of Arts, Education &
Social Sciences. The application should also contain a research project
(discussed with Professors Aikhenvald and Dixon). Incomplete applications
will not be considered.

Application Deadline: 04-Mar-2011
