Applications are invited for a research post in the Surrey Morphology Group, for a period of two and a half years, available from 1 October 2012. This post is for the project ‘Endangered complexity: Inflectional classes in Oto-Manguean languages’, co-funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and the Arts and Humanities Research Council. The project directors are Prof. Greville G. Corbett, Dr Matthew Baerman, Prof. Dunstan Brown and Dr Enrique L. Palancar.
The job will involve (i) working collaboratively in the construction and maintenance of a large lexical and morphological database of different Oto-Manguean languages together with the creation and maintenance of a website dedicated to these languages; (ii) elaborating an annotated bibliography on inflectional classes; and (iii) contributing to joint papers.
Applicants should hold a PhD or expect to complete all requirements for the PhD prior to appointment. Applicants should have a solid background in one or both of the following areas: linguistic typology and morphological theory. Knowledge of Oto-Manguean languages is not required, though it would be a distinct advantage as will be having experience in the creation of linguistic databases. The ability to understand written Spanish is desirable. Candidates must have the ability to work independently while functioning as part of a research team.
