Linguistics Department
Posted February 2018

Seeking to fill multiple internship positions for processing large amounts of fieldwork audio and text data collected working with the Acoma Keres, Crow, Apache, Ute, HoChunk and Lakota languages.

Data was collected by excellent teams of linguists you will be working under. The goal of these projects is to create extensive dictionaries, language learning textbooks, apps, and other media projects with consistent practical orthographies. Work will entail cutting and labeling audio, data entry from hand written notes, and additional tasks relating to analysis and organization of the data. You will work with our expert textbook and app development team and get the chance to consult with other education and language experts as well as Native American consultants to help steer all projects to be culturally relevant and highly valuable to the learner communities. Experience using Praat, Audacity, Google Sheets, Excel, LanguageForge, and SIL Fieldworks are a plus.

Part-time positions available now. Full-time positions for summer
Location: Bloomington, IN (our main office)
Housing stipend available for full time summer interns.
