Job Summary

CLEAR, the Center for Computational Linguistics and Education Research at the University of Colorado Boulder, is encouraging applications for a temporary part-time Grant Professional to provide support which includes a wide variety of administrative duties, primarily for Martha Palmer and her grant portfolio. This position will provide grant and contract management, human resources duties, procurement coordination, and editorial assistance, as described below. 

The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to building a culturally diverse community of faculty, staff, and students dedicated to contributing to an inclusive campus environment. We are an Equal Opportunity employer, including veterans and individuals with disabilities.

Who We Are

The Department of Linguistics at the University of Colorado Boulder is a major center of interdisciplinary research in cognitive-functional linguistics, computational linguistics, language documentation, psycholinguistics and experimental linguistics, and sociocultural linguistics. It offers a range of research programs targeting properties of spoken language. The Department's orientation is empirical: its approach to the structure and use of language confronts theory with first-hand observations. Analysis of video and audio data (typically conversational data), acoustic measurements of speech, computational modeling and statistical analysis, psycholinguistic experimentation and fieldwork in local communities and abroad all contribute to this enterprise. 

What Your Key Responsibilities Will Be

  • Review submitted articles to confirm adherence to submission guidelines and communicate status of articles to authors. 
  • Take minutes during editorial and strategy meetings. 
  • Produce and generate reports from the online submission system covering information such as number of submissions, final decisions, desk rejects, time to decisions, and geographical distribution of submissions. 
  • Respond to inquiries from potential authors, the publisher and the members of the Editorial Team.
  • Linguistic analysis of Russian and English linguistic annotation, which will require coding tools and scripts for scaling up the analysis to large amounts of data.
  • Other duties as assigned including the expectation to participate in training in the best business practices, Institute, University and State regulations, and all systems needed to be successful. 

What We Can Offer

  • $18-20 per hour.
