The University of Troms� invites applications for two two-year

possibly be extended for a third year.

A doctorate is a requirement for employment. 

The positions are associated with the Faculty of Humanities and the
Center for Advanced Study in Theoretical Linguistics (CASTL).

CASTL is a newly created Center with substantial funding from the
University of Troms� and the Norwegian Research Council. Funding from
the Research Council has been awarded through their Center of
Excellence scheme and is expected to last for 10 years. The staff
consists of 5 senior researchers, 1 adjunct professor, 3 post doctors
and 6 research fellows.

The duties of the post-doctoral fellow are research, research-related
activities and research administration.

The successful applicant will submit a research proposal , which will
be the basis for employment. The proposal is to be included as part of
the job contract for the fixed-term position. The proposal should
therefore include a progress plan.

The successful applicant will document scientific competence within an
area of theoretical linguistics relevant to CASTLs research project.

The salary for the positions follows the relevant Norwegian
regulations. The regular salary for a post doctor is NOK 343.400 per
year. A 2 % contribution to the Norwegian pension fund is obligatory.

The application should include: 

-a letter of application (up to 3 pages) with a description of the
 applicants background, research experience and the relevance of
 previous work to CASTLs research project

 research profile as described on CASTLs web page:
-2 letters of recommendation 
-certified copies of diplomas and transcripts 
-a complete list of publications including information about where the
 works have been published

Applications will be evaluated by an expert committee. Emphasis will
be put on the submitted scientific works and the research proposal for
the post-doc period. The committee will also consider the need for
covering the various research areas under CASTL.

Works and material which are to be part of the evaluation must be
submitted by April 14th, 2003. References should be included in the
