Research Associate Program
Applications for Research Associate status are welcome from graduate students, post docs or faculty from other institutions or organizations who wish to be affiliated with the LRC for an extended period (typically ranging from a quarter or semester to an academic year).
Please review the following information if you are interested in the Research Associate program.
Research Associates must follow UCSC campus guidelines for appointments. The appointment process typically lasts 6 weeks. International scholars applying for a J-1 visa will need to show evidence of financial support, insurance, and home institution approval. Prior to contacting the Linguistics Research Center please review the information on UCSC's International Education Office's website for details. The process for obtaining the necessary visa typically lasts 12 weeks.
Please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and an outline of the research project to be undertaken while in residence at UCSC, as well as an indication of the desired months of residence to the current LRC Director, via e-mail at abrsvn[AT]ucsc[DOT]edu. These materials are reviewed by the members of the department in order to establish whether the proposed project fits the research currently being done in the department.
