The post-doc position would start in Fall 2013 (possibly Spring 2014), continuing for one year, with a second year possible depending on satisfactory performance and availability of funding.
The successful candidate will join a lab in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Connecticut examining language acquisition, particularly the acquisition of American Sign Language (ASL) and English by bimodal bilinguals. Candidates with background / interests in generative approaches to language acquisition and/or sign linguistics are invited to submit inquiries. Knowledge of ASL is a plus, but not required. Completion of the Ph.D. by the start date is required.
The researcher would be expected to contribute to the overall goals of the lab including developing his/her own independent works. The position also includes teaching one course per year as assigned by the department head.
Inquiries should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a cover letter (including a statement of your research interests) and a CV.
