Subject:  Language Acquisition: PhD position at U of Alberta, Canada

The Department of Linguistics at the University of Alberta is inviting
applications for a PhD student assistantship position, beginning
September 2002, on a SSHRC-funded research programme on second
language acquisition and specific language impairment in children. The
student would be expected to participate fully in designing studies
and collecting and analyzing data from young children. Further details
on the project are available at http://www.ualberta.ca/~jparadis.

This assistantship is designed to provide talented PhD student
applicants with stable funding for the duration of their studies and
to facilitate their involvement as junior colleagues in the academic
life of the Department. Students will have the opportunity to present
the results of individual research at conferences and, where
appropriate, will be encouraged to publish their results in
professional venues.

The assistantship will be at the rate of $11,000 CDN per academic year
(September to April). There will also be a possibility of funding from
May to August. Candidates will be required to meet the entrance
requirements for the Ph.D. programme in linguistics and will be
assessed the normal PhD tuition fees which are currently $3,200 CDN
per academic year for Canadian students and $5,900 CDN for
non-Canadian students. Preference will be given to applicants with a
strong background in linguistics and /or communication disorders,
preferably at the graduate level. Experience working with young
children either in an experimental, educational or clinical context
would be an asset. Fluency in French would also be an asset.

The deadline for application for this assistantship is May 31, 2002.
Taking up this position is contingent upon admission to the PhD
Programme in Linguistics; applicants should meet Departmental
requirements for applications, as outlined on the UofA Linguistics
Website at http://www.arts.ualberta.ca/~linguist/graduate.htm.

The application package should include: a) a letter that summarizes
past experience and outlines the candidate's research interests and
proposed area of study, b) unofficial university transcripts, c) an
academic writing sample (a recent paper, thesis chapter, or article),
and d) the names and email addresses of three referees.

Applications should be sent to:
