Postdoctoral Research Fellow

The Department of Applied Linguistics at the University of Massachusetts Boston invites applications for a temporary non-benefitted postdoctoral researcher in applied linguistics under the direction of Drs. Avary Carhill-Poza and Panagiota Gounari to begin September 1, 2015. Areas of inquiry include adolescent English language development, sociocultural factors in language development, and the role of technology in schooling emergent bilingual students.

The postdoctoral researcher would join a vibrant community of scholars focused on the education of linguistically diverse urban youth in the Department of Applied Linguistics and would be expected to contribute to the intellectual life of the department. Primary responsibilities will include data collection, analysis, and reporting as well as other project-specific work.


Candidates should have a PhD in Applied Linguistics, Psychology or Social Science research by the time of appointment. Research experience with linguistically diverse students in school settings is a plus, but not required. Fluency in Spanish is preferred, but bilingual/bicultural candidates in other languages will also be considered.
