Doctoral fellowship in linguistics: Quantificational aspects of
linguistic diversity

The Department of Linguistics of the Max Planck Institute for
Evolutionary Anthropology (Leipzig) seeks candidates for a doctoral
fellowships in linguistics. The fellowship is for two years, with the
possibility of one or two six-month extensions. Candidates should be
interested in working in the interdisciplinary context of the Max
Planck Institute.

The doctoral fellow is expected to propose a thesis/dissertation
research topic in which mathematical/statistical methods are applied
to linguistic diversity. The project might deal with the analysis of
typological databases or with the analysis of diachronic
relationships, but other proposals pertaining to the quantification of
linguistic diversity are also invited.

The fellow should already have an MA in Linguistics or an equivalent
qualification, and be either registered or qualified to register in a
recognized doctoral program at a university or equivalent
degree-awarding institution.

Except for approved absences (e.g. fieldwork, conferences, vacation),
the place of work is Leipzig. The fellowship is available from 1
October 2004, but a later starting date may be negotiated.

Good knowledge of English is required.

interests, two letters of recommendation, and a sample of written work
