Indiana University, Department of Second Language Studies
Postdoctorial Fellow (Language Acquisition; Second Language Studies)
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 8-week 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 2012.
Native or near-native knowledge of English is required. For the 2012-2014 fellowship, applicants must have a Ph.D. in hand by July 31, 2012. Degrees must be granted no earlier than January 1, 2010.
Application Deadline: 30 March 2012
