      Three-year Research Fellowship (Level B) - Reference number: 50004477
      This position attracts a remuneration package of $56,877 to $67,541 per
      annum which includes 17% superannuation with a salary component of $48,613
      to $57,728 per annum.
      CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATIONS: Monday 24 July 2000


      Applications are invited for a three-year Research Fellowship in the
      Research Centre for Linguistic Typology (La Trobe University). This is to
      commence no later than 1 January 2001 (an earlier starting date is possible).

      Applicants should have a PhD in linguistics or be close to the award of a
      PhD (they will have to have submitted their dissertation before taking up
      this position). 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 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 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 Research Centre for Linguistic Typology consists, at any one time, of
      about twenty scholars, working on a variety of languages. Besides the
      permanent staff we have an array of Research Fellows and PhD students; each
      year a number of senior scholars from across the world spend from three to
      six months with us as Visiting Fellows. Our personnel this year includes
      specialists on spoken languages from the following families and areas:
      Uto-Aztecan, Siouan, Arawak, Arawá, Barbacoan, Macro-Je, Indo-European,
      Afroasiatic, Niger-Congo, Nilo-Saharan, Tibeto-Burman, Papuan, Austronesian
      and Australian, in addition to sign languages.

      RCLT works in close cooperation with the Department of Linguistics in La
      Trobe University's Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, which has a
      full program of teaching and research. Faculty members in the department
      are: Professor Barry Blake, Associate Professor David Bradley, Associate
      Professor Kate Burridge, Dr Hilary Chappell and Dr Ng Bee-Chin. The
      university library has an excellent collection in linguistics and related
      fields.

      An allowance will be made to cover travelling expenses to and from
      Australia at the beginning and end of the period of employment. A suitable
      allowance will be made to cover the expenses of linguistic fieldwork either
      in South America or in the New Guinea region.

      http://www.latrobe.edu.au/www/rclt. Prospective applicants are invited to
