	 MELLON POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP AT NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY
	
	
	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, 2000.
	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 15, 2000. 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
