This job is part of the LABOR project - "Language at the borders of work and school: an ethnography of vocational high schools in Guyana".
This research program is financed from September 2022 by the LABEX ASLAN. It is jointly coordinated by Patricia Lambert (ENS Lyon, ICAR) and Anna Ghimenton (Lyon 2, DDL).
The LABOR research aims to focus on a territory (Guyana), on a segment of the school system (the vocational track) and on a type of didactic device ("school workshop") through the prism of language. The articulation between these three points corresponds to the opening of a completely new project. The general objective of LABOR is thus to document the role of language in vocational training in Guyana. By entering the vocational high schools within the vocational training "workshops", the aim is to begin to produce knowledge on the ways in which future workers and employees are trained in Guyana, by identifying in particular the role language practices play in this training, the types of knowledge in play (professional, technical, academic or otherwise categorized) and the differentiating social processes that are operationalized in the learning.
To this end, the project adopts an ethnographic and interdisciplinary approach (language sciences, education sciences, social sciences).
The person recruited will participate in the coordination of the consortium's work and in all stages of the research: preparation of the research missions in French Guiana, elaboration of the general bibliography to support the survey, collection and analysis of qualitative data. His/her participation will be mainly in the field of ethnographic and interactional sociolinguistics (linguistic anthropology). The position requires proven theoretical and methodological skills in this field. He/she should also have a strong interest and experience in the field of vocational training.
The work, carried out in close collaboration with the coordinators and the rest of the team, will lead to co-authored publications for the dissemination of results and the valorization of the research.


Participation in the coordination of the consortium's work; data collection in a multilingual school environment (vocational high schools); discourse and interactional analyses (multimodal); co-writing of scientific and popularization articles.


Required skills:
Skills in analyzing official texts related to French national education and school vocational training reference curriculum.
Advanced skills are required both on the empirical side (data collection in multilingual contexts) and on the data management side, as well as on the interactional linguistic analysis side. Advanced mastery of the technical dimension (audio-video recordings in ecological settings) for data collection in the school environment is essential. Strong experience with fieldwork and collaborative ethnographic work in a multidisciplinary context is essential.

Desirable Skills:
Knowledge of the Guyanese and/or Latin American context, of languages from this geolinguistic area. Interest in the variation and variability of language practices according to ethnographic and sociolinguistic approaches. Good theoretical and methodological knowledge of the issues of language contact and language socialization will be particularly appreciated.

Work Context

Within the Labex ASLAN (https://aslan.universite-lyon.fr/), the ICAR Joint Research Unit (CNRS, ENS Lyon, Lyon 2) is characterized by multidisciplinary scientific activities in linguistics and didactics focused on the multidimensional analysis of language use in interaction and in text, apprehended in a tool-based way on large corpora of interactive and textual oral data. The members of ICAR contribute to the development of multidisciplinary research on the relationship between knowledge and linguistic mediation; on the interactions between language, work and training; on the new contexts of learning and interaction filtered by digital media.

Constraints and risks

This job requires a high degree of autonomy, particularly in the data collection stages, which will involve missions in the Guyanese field lasting several weeks/months. Advance planning of missions is required.
The work will be done in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
