		 MELLON POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP


Contingent on funding, the Department of Linguistics at Northwestern
University invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship funded
through a grant to the University from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
The fellowship is for a period of two academic years, beginning
September 1, 1999. In accordance with the fellowship guidelines, all
requirements for the Ph.D. must be completed prior to the start of the
fellowship period. We are seeking candidates in any subfield of
linguistics who have analyzed primary data (e.g., experimental data,
field data, or natural language corpora) in order to address theoretical
issues. Preference will be given to candidates whose research interests
are interdisciplinary and mesh with those of the current faculty.

Salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications. The
position provides funds for computer facilities and professional travel.
Mellon postdoctoral fellows are expected to participate fully in
Northwestern's interdisciplinary research environment, teach two
quarter-length courses per year, and present one colloquium per year.

Applications are due at Northwestern by January 19, 1999. The
application should include the candidate's CV (indicating an e-mail
address), statements of research and teaching interests, teaching
evaluations (if available), and reprints or other written work.
(Finalists will be asked to submit a copy of the dissertation, or
completed portions thereof, at a later date; it is not necessary to do
so at this time.) Candidates should arrange to have 3-4 letters of
reference sent directly to the search committee by the application
deadline; if possible, one of the letters should specifically address
the applicant's qualifications as a teacher.

Send all materials to:

	Mellon Search Committee
	Department of Linguistics
	Northwestern University
	2016 Sheridan Road
	Evanston, IL 60208-4090
	
	(Tel: 847-491-7020, Fax: 847-491-3770)

E-mail inquiries should be directed to the search committee chair, Prof.
Gregory Ward, at mellonling.nwu.edu. The web page for the Department
is: http://www.ling.nwu.edu.

Northwestern University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action
Employer, and applications from minority and women candidates are
especially welcome.
