The Department of Linguistics at Rutgers University in New Brunswick is offering a half year fellowship for postdoctoral residence at Rutgers University, for Spring, 2015. All applicants must have a Ph.D. in hand before their residency and must be native speakers of a non-Colonial language of Africa. This postdoctoral position is funded by the NSF-supported Afranaph Project and the Afranaph Fellow will be expected to spend at least 20 hours per week working on the project and the rest on his or her own research. Preference will be given to applicants within five years of the completion of their degrees, but interested candidates with more experience are encouraged to apply. Successful applicants will be those who most closely fit the needs of the project. The six months of support includes a stipend of approximately $25,000 and funds to cover round-trip travel expenses from the candidate’s country of origin. Further details are to be posted at

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, three letters of reference, a cover letter that names those writing in support, supporting documents, such as essays in progress or published work (limited to no more than two), and a short statement including a summary of research interests. Applicants who do not have a Ph.D. when applying, but who expect to have their Ph.D. in hand before the fellowship begins, should include a letter from their advisor concerning their expected date of completion. Applications received before May 15, 2014 are assured consideration, but we will continue to accept applications until the positions has been filled. All applications, letters of reference and materials should be sent to the application address below or sent online to the application email below, with ‘Afranaph Postdoc Application’ in the subject heading.

Rutgers University is an AA/EO employer.
