Postdoctoral Research Position in Corpus Linguistics & Second Language Acquisition

University of Michigan, English Language Institute

The English Language Institute at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, is inviting applications for a postdoctoral research fellowship in corpus linguistics and second language acquisition. The position is for one year in the first instance, with a starting date between September and November, 2008.

Applicants should be well-versed in corpus-linguistic methodology, and will be expected to assist with corpus analysis as well as corpus design and compilation. Additionally, ideal candidates should have expertise in second language acquisition (or possibly psycholinguistics), particularly with regard to the acquisition of vocabulary, phraseology, collocation, pattern grammar, construction grammar, or pragmatics.

In accordance with ELI tradition, we are seeking a candidate who is interested in creating corpus-based resources (including multi-modal corpora) for the linguistic research community as well as for teachers and students world-wide. Furthermore, the candidate would be encouraged to use ELI corpora, such as MICASE (the Michigan Corpus of Academic Spoken English) and MICUSP (the Michigan Corpus of Upper-level Student Papers, currently under development), as a basis for developing EAP teaching and testing materials.

To apply, please send CV and cover letter emphasizing relevant background, including contact information for two references. For additional information or informal inquiries, please contact Dr. Ute Römer at uroemer at umich.edu or Dr. Nick C. Ellis at ncellis at umich.edu. The deadline for application is March 3, 2008. We welcome both U.S. and international applications. Applications may be submitted as e-mail attachments.
