Jobs: Eng & Comp Ling, Phonet & Phonol: Research Assoc, U of Virginia

Editor for this issue: Svetlana Aksenova <svetlanalinguistlist.org>

The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Message 1: Modified: English & Computational Linguistics, Phonetics & Phonology: Research Associate, University of Virginia, VA, USA
Date: 10-Jul-2006
From: Jerome McGann <jjm2fvirginia.edu>
Subject: Modified: English & Computational Linguistics, Phonetics & Phonology: Research Associate, University of Virginia, VA, USA

University or Organization: University of Virginia
Department: Applied Research in Patacriticism
Web Address: http://www.iath.virginia.edu/~jjm2f/arp/home.html
Job Rank: Research Associate
Specialty Areas: Computational Linguistics; Phonetics; Phonology
Required Language(s): English (eng)


The Media Studies Program at the University of Virginia seeks a research
associate (post-doctorate position) for its Applied Research in
Patacriticism tools development group. The project is engaged in
developing software that maps the phonetic structure of English language
texts, especially poetical texts. The software (called "JuXta":
http://nines.org/tools/juxta.html ) is already well developed as a tool for
comparing and collating equivalent texts. The project is to move in a
further direction using the phonetic resources of either the online OED or
Wordnet, or possibly some similar resource. A Ph.D., preferably in
linguistics and/or computer science, is required. The ideal candidate will
have a familiarity with English language and literature.

The Research Associate will be working with java programmers and visual
design specialists. Together they will design and build the software that
will define the phonetic units of a text, distinguish significant phonetic
patterns, and map the relations between the patterns that are exposed.

Desirable start date is January 10, 2007. Send application letter, resume,
and the names (and contact information) of three references. Review of
applications will begin on August 15, 2006 and will continue until the position
is filled.

The University of Virginia is an equal opportunity/affirmative action
employer. A demonstrated commitment to issues of diversity in pedagogy and
scholarship is integral to the vision of the Media Studies Program.
Therefore the search committee particularly welcomes applications from
women, ethnic minorities, and other underrepresented groups.
