Typology Jobs and PhDs and Jobs at La Trobe University

Professors R.M.W. Dixon and Alexandra Y. Aikhenvald will be relocating
their Research Centre for Linguistic Typology from the Australian National
University in Canberra to La Trobe University in Melbourne as from January
2000.

We welcome enquiries concerning doing a PhD or applying for a Post-doctoral
Fellowship with us.

Our PhD students all undertake fieldwork on an undescribed (or scarcely
described) language and produce a comprehensive grammatical description of
it, paying special attention to aspects of the grammar that are of
particular theoretical relevance. Our main fields of research are the
Papuan languages of New Guinea, languages from Amazonia and the indigenous
languages of Australia but we are also interested in students wishing to
undertake fieldwork in other parts of the world.

We expect to have a number of Postdoctoral Fellowship positions becoming
available over the next year and welcome expressions of advanced interest.
Note that applicants for our Postdoctoral fellowships are expected to have
written a doctoral dissertation on a previously undescribed language, as
indicated in the last paragraph.
The research projects we sponsor include: describing endangered languages,
studying languages in contact and investigating types of and conditions for
linguistic diffusion.

Address enquiries to Sasha.Aikhenvald at anu.edu.au
