Subject: MELLON POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP

 MELLON POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP

The Department of Linguistics at Northwestern University invites
applications for a postdoctoral fellowship funded through a grant to
the University from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The fellowship
is for a period of two academic years, beginning September 1, 1998.
In accordance with the fellowship guidelines, all requirements for the
Ph.D. must be completed prior to the start of the fellowship period.
We are seeking candidates in any subfield of linguistics who have
analyzed primary data (e.g., experimental data, field data, or natural
language corpora) in order to address theoretical issues. Preference
will be given to candidates whose research interests are
interdisciplinary and mesh with those of the current faculty.

Salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications. The
position provides funds for computer facilities and professional
travel. Mellon postdoctoral fellows are expected to participate fully
in Northwestern's interdisciplinary research environment, teach two
quarter-length courses per year, and present one colloquium per year.

APPLICATIONS ARE DUE AT NORTHWESTERN BY DECEMBER 22, 1997.

The application should include the candidate's CV (indicating an
e-mail address), statements of research and teaching interests,
teaching evaluations (if available), and reprints or other written
work. (Finalists will be asked to submit a copy of the dissertation,
or completed portions thereof, in early January; it is not necessary
to do so at this time.) Candidates should arrange to have 3-5 letters
of reference sent directly to the search committee by the application
deadline; if possible, one of the letters should specifically address
the applicant's qualifications as a teacher.
