From:Elizabeth Lanza elizabeth.lanza at iln.uio.no
LINGUIST List issue http://linguistlist.org/issues/25/25-3959.html


University or Organization: University of Oslo 
Department: Center for Multilingualism in Society across the Lifespan (MultiLing)
Web Address: http://www.hf.uio.no/multiling/english/

Job Rank: Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in language in the aging multilingual population 
Specialty Areas: Applied Linguistics; Neurolinguistics; Psycholinguistics; Sociolinguistics 


One Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship is available at the Center for Multilingualism in Society across the Lifespan (MultiLing) at the University of Oslo, starting in February 2015. MultiLing is a Center of Excellence funded by the Research Council of Norway.

MultiLing seeks to recruit a postdoctoral candidate with excellent research qualifications who will work within the range of the Center's research profile, which is reflected in three mutually dependent and interrelated themes:

Theme 1: Multilingual competence across the lifespan

Theme 2: Multilingual practices across the lifespan

Theme 3: Management of multilingualism across the lifespan: Language policy and ideologies  

MultiLing's research agenda addresses multilingualism across the lifespan. The postdoctoral fellowship is earmarked for studies of language in the aging multilingual population related to one or more of the three themes. Although the project may be firmly anchored within one theme, interdisciplinary projects that successfully draw on perspectives from more than one theme will be given priority.

MultiLing seeks candidates with documented expertise in the field of language in the aging multilingual population. The proposed project may be linked to the ongoing project on aging at MultiLing ("Multilingual Dementia - Competence, Practices, Policies"); however, this is not a requirement. In the case of equally qualified applicants, an applicant proposing a project that addresses issues relevant for the multilingual situation in Norway will be given preference. Candidates with a minority language background relevant for the multilingual situation in Norway are encouraged to apply. Competence in Norwegian is not a requirement.  

For more information, please see the job announcement below.

Application Deadline: 31-Oct-2014
