LINGUIST List 17.2219

Tue Aug 01 2006

Jobs: Contact Linguistics: Rank Open, MPI for Evolutionary Anthropology

Editor for this issue: Amy Renaud <renaudlinguistlist.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.

***PhD or post-doctoral position in Contact Linguistics***

One PhD or post-doctoral position is available in the interdisciplinary
junior research group of Dr. Brigitte Pakendorf on 'Comparative Population
Linguistics' at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in
Leipzig, Germany. The successful applicant will be expected to work on
language contact in Siberia (Dolgan or Even). Individuals applying for a
PhD position need to have a master's degree or equivalent in a relevant
field; individuals wanting to apply for a post-doctoral position are
required to have a PhD. Some experience in linguistic fieldwork and with
languages of Siberia is desirable but not necessary. An interest in
interdisciplinary research is important, and a knowledge of Russian is
imperative. The junior research group will be tied in with the Department
of Linguistics at the MPI for Evolutionary Anthropology, which has a strong
focus on functional-typological research as well as on fieldwork-based
language description; see http://www.eva.mpg.de/lingua/.

The junior research group on 'Comparative Population Linguistics' will be
an interdisciplinary group consisting of molecular anthropologists,
linguists, and social anthropologists devoted to the study of prehistoric
population and language contact. Additional information can be found at our
webpage: http://www.eva.mpg.de/cpl/

Interested individuals should send a letter of application, curriculum
vitae, a sample of their writing, and the names and FAX numbers or e-mail
addresses of two referees to Brigitte Pakendorf (Max Planck Institute for
Evolutionary Anthropology, Deutscher Platz 6, D-04103 Leipzig, Germany;
e-mail: pakendorfeva.mpg.de). Due to an extended absence in the field,
applications will be reviewed from the end of September; shortlisted
candidates will be invited to interview in October. The position will be
available from January 1st, 2007.

The Max Planck Society is an equal opportunity employer.
