Message 2: Theoretical Ling; Research Fellowship at Kanda University

Subject: Theoretical Ling; Research Fellowship at Kanda University

The Graduate School of Language Sciences at Kanda University 
of International Studies (KUIS) has recently launched a linguistics 
project that involves research in theoretical linguistics and related 
areas such as psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, and computational 
linguistics. This project is supported by a Grant-in-Aid for COE (= 
Center of Excellence) Research of the Japanese Ministry of Education. 
KUIS hosts two post-doctoral positions for this project, and invites 
applications for these positions. 

Location: Graduate School of Language Sciences, Kanda University 
of International Studies, Makuhari, Chiba, Japan (45 minutes from 
the center of Tokyo) .

Application Deadline: March 14, 1999 for the term of September 1999
through August 2000.

Period: For one year. 

Qualification: Ph.D. obtained by the time of appointment (strictly 
required); or Ph.D. received within the past six years. Junior faculty 
members are eligible if they can take a leave from their institution for 
the term of the grant. 

(NOTE: These positions are supported by the Japan Society for the 
Promotion of Science (JSPS), and the awards are finalized on their 
approval. JSPS requires the grantees to be under 35 years of age when 
the term starts.) 

Specialization: Any area of theoretical linguistics (e.g., Syntax, 
Semantics, Morphology, Phonology) or related areas (e.g., 
Psycholinguistics, Neurolinguistics, Computational linguistics).

Nationality: non-Japanese.

Roles and Duties: The purpose of our project is to develop our 
linguistics research not only in theory construction but also in 
theory application and verification. We are especially interested in 
collaboration with psycholinguistics (language acquisition in particular), 
neurolinguistics, and computational linguistics. The grantees are 
expected to take part in our project by, for example, presenting their 
work in seminars and colloquia and attending our project meetings. 
There will be ample time to further develop their own research and/or 
to revise their dissertation for publication.

Stipend (subject to change): 270,000 yen (approximately 2,400 US 
dollars) a month (over 3 million yen (approximately 29 thousand 
dollars) a year) for living; plus 200,000 yen (a little less than 2,000 
dollars) for settling in. In addition, up to 800,000 yen (7,000 dollars) 
for research purposes will be supplied by the Ministry of Education if 
an application is filed and accepted. 

(NOTE: Housing will be supplied by KUIS as described below. 
Though the living costs in Japan (the Tokyo area in particular) are 
high, 3 million yen a year will be enough for a decent life because 
housing is taken care of.) 

Other privileges: A furnished apartment within a short distance of 
the university; an office room; a round trip air ticket to and from 
Tokyo; internet access; free use of a personal computer and other 
research facilities including the university library. 

Send a letter of application, CV (nationality and date of birth must 
be included), major publications, and two letters of recommendation
