I am Aida Talic, assistant professor from the Department of Linguistics. Next semester I am teaching a field methods course in linguistics where the students are led through the process of discovering the grammar of a language they have never been exposed to. I am looking for a couple of tutors who are native speakers of languages that are not taught in our department and that are not likely to be native languages of our students. These will be paid positions, so I was hoping you could help me spread the word among graduate students.

Here are the links for the two positions I am currently looking to hire a graduate student for:

Position 1: A speaker of a language that is not taught on campus:

Position 2: A speaker of Dholuo (or some other language from the Nilo-Sarahan family):

Interested candidates can contact Aida Talic at if they have any questions about the application.
