The Department of Second Language Studies at Indiana University is seeking applicants for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Second Language Studies. The fellowship is designed to mentor recent Ph.D. recipients in their transition toward a regular tenure-track position, including both teaching and research experience. Fellows will be expected to take an active role in the research life of the Department and University. Fellows should, therefore, consult with faculty, participate in research, present on-going work at the SLS colloquium, and attend conferences and workshops. Fellows with research programs on any aspect of learner language development (including revitalization contexts and untutored environments) are invited to apply. Fellows will teach three sections of a course (SLST-T125, 3cr: Academic Language and Culture at US Universities for International Students) in the fall. Spring will be fully devoted to research activities. Fellows will remain in residence. The Postdoctoral Fellowship is a 10-month appointment, with healthcare benefits included and compensation commensurate with other Postdoctoral fellowships in other similar disciplines/fields. Fellows will be appointed for a period of 2 years, starting Fall 2015. PhD in Second Language Studies, Applied Linguistics, Linguistics or related field is required. Native or near-native knowledge of English and familiarity with undergraduate education in US universities is required.

For the 2015–2017 fellowship, applicants must have a Ph.D. in hand by July 31, 2015. Degrees must be granted no earlier than January 1, 2013.

Applications should include a cover letter, statement of interest, curriculum vitae, and research statement. Send all inquiries to the Department Chair, Kathleen Bardovi-Harlig (email below) 1021 East Third Street, Memorial Hall 315, Bloomington, IN 47405. Applications will be reviewed as they are received, and so interested applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
