Postdoctoral position

Centre de Recherches Linguistiques sur l’Asie Orientale (UMR 8563), CNRS

Director : Hilary M. Chappell

75006 Paris, France

Project topic: Serial verb constructions in Vietnamese (or in another 
language of the Mon-Khmer branch of the Austroasiatic family)

Description: The candidate will be a specialist in Mon-Khmer linguistics 
(for example, in Vietnamese, Khmer or one of the Aslian languages) and be 
interested above all in the typological profile of this language family. 
She or he will be expected to undertake fieldwork in the region where the 
given language is spoken in order to carry out the grammatical analysis on 
a fully empirical basis. The application of a general framework of 
languages in contact and linguistic areas is a desideratum within the 
context of the larger project on the typology of East Asian languages to 
which this belongs. A basic level of French would be useful but is not a 
requirement at the commencement of the project.
