The Department of Linguistics seeks to appoint a scholar to carry out 
research on Papuan languages and their broader scientific implications. 
Applicants with relevant field experience from any part of the world are 
welcome to apply, provided they put forward a detailed and compelling 
proposal for a research program whose major focus is on one or more 
Papuan languages.

The successful candidate will have an outstanding record of publication 
in relevant field(s), relative to their early career status. Candidates 
should provide a detailed statement of the research project(s) they plan 
in the short, medium and long terms, putting together an exciting, 
innovative and plausible program based on fieldwork and analysis, and 
including likely plans for future project funding.

The research outlined should be compatible but complementary with the 
Department’s range of research interests, as outlined in the further 
particulars. The successful candidate will also be expected to serve on 
the editorial board of the publication series, Pacific Linguistics, to 
engage in the supervision of postgraduate students and occasional 
advanced teaching as needed, and to serve as an attraction point for the 
development of major research initiatives in the area.

Women are particularly encouraged to apply.
