The School of Literatures, Cultures, and Linguistics at the University of
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has an opening for a full-time (100%) Visiting
Research Engineer in its linguistics research labs. The Visiting Research
Engineer works directly with faculty and graduate students to identify,
implement and maintain appropriate hardware and software for research within
the School of Literatures, Cultures and Linguistics. Currently, the labs have
facilities for high-quality audio and video capture, eye-tracking, speech
aerodynamics, electropalatography, and event-related potentials: Phonetics and
Phonology Lab (http://phonlab.linguistics.illinois.edu/); Second Language
Acquisition Lab (http://www.bilingualismlab.illinois.edu/); Discourse, Social
Interaction, and Translation Lab; Electrophysiology and Language Processing
Lab. The position is renewable for an additional two years and is contingent
on funding and strong annual performance reviews by the School of Literatures,
Cultures, and Linguistics. The position may become regular at a later date.
The target starting date is September 1, 2013. Salary is commensurate with
qualifications and experience.

Responsibilities will be research-related only and will include:
- Training faculty and graduate student researchers in the use of hardware and
software for research purposes (including occasional workshops)
- Holding scheduled consultations with faculty and graduate student
researchers on their research projects
- Oversight of data acquisition hardware
- Assisting faculty and graduate student researchers in problem-solving
hardware and software issues
- Providing support to faculty and graduate
student researchers in procedural programming languages (e.g., Python, R,
Matlab)
- Helping standardize computing and programming procedures across labs
- Database management
- Digital signal processing
- Assistance with initial set up of pilot experiments

At a minimum, qualified applicants must have a MA/MS in linguistics or closely
related fields, (e.g., neuroscience, psychology, speech and hearing science
with a concentration in linguistics or speech-related research). The applicant
should also have a solid background in a procedural programming language
(e.g., Python, Matlab, and/or R) and statistical modeling. Preference will be
given to candidates who have previously worked in a laboratory setting, have a
demonstrated ability to work well as part of a research team, and have
experience using advanced hardware for data acquisition.

To apply, create your candidate profile through the University of Illinois
application login page at the application website and upload your application
materials: letter of application, CV, and names and contact information for
three professional references. Referees will be contacted electronically upon
submission of the application. Only electronic applications submitted through
the application website interface will be accepted.

To ensure full consideration, all required applicant materials must be
received no later than July 22, 2013. Letters of reference must be received no
later than July 29, 2013. The department highly recommends that complete
applications be submitted prior to July 22, to ensure that referees have
enough time to submit their letters of recommendation.
