        RCLT POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP 2005



        MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA



        Applications are invited for a three-year Postdoctoral Research
        Fellowship in the Research Centre for Linguistic Typology. This is to
        commence on 1st March 2005, or soon thereafter.



        Applicants should have been awarded their doctorates within the last
        five years. They should have experience of linguistic fieldwork and
        will, ideally, have already completed a grammatical description of some
        previously undescribed language (not their native language) in terms of
        basic linguistic theory. The University may consider cases in which the
        period is in excess of five years due to special circumstances.
        Applications will be considered from candidates whose thesis is
        currently under examination. Applicants must hold a doctoral degree or
        have equivalent qualifications at the date of appointment. La Trobe
        graduates should normally have a minimum of two years postdoctoral
        research experience at another institution. A Fellowship will not
        normally be awarded to an applicant who holds a permanent appointment
        within the University.

        The successful applicant will work as part of a team with Professor
        R.M.W. Dixon, Professor Alexandra Y. Aikhenvald, and other members of
        the Research Centre, on a topic relating to languages preferably from
        either South America or the New Guinea region (primarily relating to
        Papuan languages). They will undertake extensive fieldwork and will
        either (i) produce a comprehensive description of some previously
        undescribed language; or (ii) pursue an in-depth study of a language
        contact situation. Option (ii) will be suitable for someone who already
        has good knowledge of one or more of the languages involved in a
        suitable contact situation. The choice of project will be made after
        discussion between the successful applicant and Professors Dixon and
        Aikhenvald.



        The Fellowship will be a three-year appointment and is intended to
        advance the research activities of the University by bringing to or
        retaining in Australia a promising scholar.



        Enquiries should be directed initially to the Director of RCLT,
        Professor R.M.W. Dixon (email linguistic.typology@..., phone
        +61 3 9479 6401).



        Further information and the application form may be obtained from the
        RCLT World Wide Web Address http://www.latrobe.edu.au/rclt.



        The original application and five copies must be received by the
        Secretary of the RCLT Research Committee, no later than 5th November
        2004. Incomplete applications will not be considered.



        Salary Range: A$48,400 pa. - A$51,954 pa. Closing
        Date: 5th November 2004

        La Trobe University is an Equal Opportunity Employer and provides a
        smoke-free work environment.
