Open position: Postdoctoral fellowship in Indigenous language documentation and technology

WEBPAGE:
https://altlab.artsrn.ualberta.ca/21c/2020/03/14/postdoc-language-documentation-2020/

DESCRIPTION

The university–community Partnership “21st Century Tools for Indigenous Languages” invites applications for a full-time Postdoctoral Fellowship in Indigenous Language Documentation and Technology, beginning in summer/fall 2020, in this research project funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) of Canada. The start date is negotiable, and the appointment is tenable for 2 years, subject to review after the 1st year.

This 7-year Partnership is led by the Alberta Language Technology Lab (ALTLab) in the Department of Linguistics, University of Alberta, and it has as partner organizations 13 institutions and Indigenous language communities and 31 individual researchers and educators in Canada, the United States, and Norway. Further details of our Partnership and the host organization can be found at: https://altlab.artsrn.ualberta.ca/21c/ and http://altlab.artsrn.ualberta.ca

Members of our Partnership have been developing computational models of the phonetics, morphology, lexis, and syntax of Indigenous languages in Canada and North America, starting with the Algonquian and the Dene language families, to create software applications that support their continued use in daily life by both speakers and learners. These include intelligent electronic dictionaries, spell-checkers, linguistically analyzed text collections, computer-aided language learning tools, as well as text-to-speech synthesizers and optical character recognition. The languages we have gotten the furthest with are Plains Cree (Algonquian) and Tsuut’ina (Dene), see: https://altlab.artsrn.ualberta.ca/tools-applications/ and https://altlab.artsrn.ualberta.ca/publications/.

DUTIES

The tasks of the Postdoc will include the following, allowing for variation based on the successful applicant’s competences and interests:

  1. participation in/responsibility for the continued development of our existing computational morphological and phonetic models and end-user applications for the Algonquian and/or Dene and/or other Indigenous languages we are already working on;
  2. participation in/responsibility for the development of new computational morphological and phonetic models and applications for Indigenous languages other than the ones we are working on, preferably spoken in Canada;
  3. partial training and supervision of undergraduate and graduate students (M.A/Ph.D level) in developing models, applications and resources for Indigenous languages;
  4. engagement with Indigenous community consultants on collecting primary linguistic data and gathering feedback from community members;
  5. other administrative responsibilities.

The fellowship comes with an annual salary (in CAD) in line with SSHRC policies (https://www.sshrc-crsh.gc.ca/funding-financement/programs-programmes/fellowships/postdoctoral-postdoctorale-eng.aspx), and benefits.

The postdoc is expected to work with and support the activities of multiple Partners in the Partnership, and may be co-located or based at other Partners for part of their tenure (https://altlab.artsrn.ualberta.ca/21c/people/). To this end, the Partnership has allocated dedicated funding for work and travel at multiple locations.

By the end of the Postdoc appointment, the successful applicant will have a set of skills allowing them to partner with Indigenous communities and field linguists to develop a range of sophisticated tools in support of language maintenance and revitalization.

QUALIFICATIONS

  1. The applicants should have recently completed, or be about to finish, a Ph.D degree in linguistics or an associated relevant discipline.
  2. Successful applicants may have specialized either in:
    1. the documentation and study of Indigenous American languages, with an interest to learn computational modelling, or
    2. the computational modelling (text and/or speech) of morphologically rich languages, with an interest to learn the essential morphological and phonetic characteristics of the languages we are working with.

HOW TO APPLY

The application should include:

  1. A research statement (ca. 2 pages) outlining past experience and current research interests and, in particular, how these align with and contribute towards the goals of our Partnership project;
  2. A Curriculum Vitae (with a List of Publications); and
  3. 1–3 relevant academic writing samples.
  4. Letters of Recommendation should be sent directly to Project Director, Dr. Antti Arppe (arppe@ualberta.ca) by 3 referees.

Applicants should contact Dr. Arppe in advance to discuss their research plan.

Applications and any inquiries should be sent by electronic mail to Dr. Arppe. Review of applications will begin by April 30, 2020, and will continue until the position is filled.

APPLICATION DEADLINE:
30-April-2020 (Open until filled)

Applications are invited for a full-time postdoctoral position in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Alberta. The postdoctoral fellow will work in the Prosody Lab and the Centre for Comparative Psycholinguistics with Drs. Anja Arnhold and Juhani Järvikivi on projects relating to the prosodic marking of focus in Canadian English and the role of prosody in referential processing. Primary duties include active engagement in research and the research community, conceptualizing, designing, and conducting research projects, preparing findings for publication and oral presentation, laboratory management, and working with graduate and undergraduate students in the two labs. Candidates need not be Canadian Citizens to apply. The salary for this position will be $40,000 CAD a year, plus $3000 a year for research related costs, and supplemental health benefits, in keeping with university postdoctoral fellowship guidelines. The desired start date is April 1, 2020, at the latest. The position is for one year with the possibility of renewal for a second year.

The Prosody Lab is a recently-established and fully-equipped space for conducting experimental studies on the production and perception of spoken language. The lab itself houses a large sound-attenuated booth that contains a station for classical one-participant set-ups, as well allowing to record conversations of several speakers seated comfortably around a table. Lab members also have access to research facilities of other labs at the department or operated by the Faculty of Arts, including further recording booths and classroom-sized computer labs for perception studies.

The Centre for Comparative Psycholinguistics is a major venue of experimental research in language processing in North America and a lively research environment that attracts undergraduate and graduate students and senior staff across faculties and disciplines. The CCP research facilities include a line of SR Research Eyelink eye trackers (including 2 brand new Portable Duo trackers), mobile eye tracking glasses, and a Biosemi EEG. In addition to the local facilities and contacts, the Postdoctoral fellow will benefit from and participate in the Annual Spring Training in Experimental Psycholinguistics as well as training and training events organized within the SSHRC Partnered Training Initiative Words in the World.

Qualifications:

  • Completed PhD (within past 5 years and before the start date) in Linguistics, Cognitive Science, or a related field.
  • Demonstrated experience in prosody research within the autosegmental-metrical framework, experimental design, and relevant statistical methods.
  • Experience and skills with ToBI-annotation, R statistical language, and advanced statistics (e.g., LMMs, GAMMs, other regression techniques) are desirable.
  • Experience with any of the following: annotation of information structure, eye-tracking methods, EEG/ERPs, language processing, and/or individual differences would be a plus.

To Apply: Applications should include a Cover letter, CV, a brief (max. 2 pages) statement of interest, one representative recent publication, and the names and contact details of three referees. Applications should be sent as a single pdf file via e-mail to Drs. Anja Arnhold and Juhani Järvikivi with the subject “Prosody Postdoc”.
