Description:

Research Fellow - English and Languages

Location: Guildford
Salary: £31,342 to £32,277 per annum, Fixed Term
Post Type: Full Time
Closing Date: Sunday 09 November 2014
Interview Date: Wednesday 26 November 2014 
Reference: 067314

The School of English and Languages is seeking to appoint an academic to a
Fixed-Term contract (14 months) in the Surrey Morphology Group (SMG) as a
postdoctoral researcher in the AHRC project “Combining gender and classifiers
in natural languages”. The project directors are Prof. Greville G. Corbett,
Prof. Dunstan Brown and Dr. Matthew Baerman, and project consultants are Prof.
Maria Polinsky, Prof. Gunter Senft and Dr. Sebastian Fedden. The successful
candidate will be responsible for conducting research on the role of gender
and classifiers in reference tracking in text corpora. Under investigation
are: a language with both gender and classifiers (Mian, Papuan), a language
with only gender (Italian, Indo-European), a language with only classifiers
(Kilivila, Austronesian), and a language where there is no clearly
identifiable set for either of these (Yup'ik, Eskimo-Aleut). The successful
candidate will have a research background in categorization and/or nominal
classification, or knowledge and skills relevant for the in-depth study of
these. Previous experience of working on reference tracking in text corpora is
highly desirable. Candidates must have the ability to work independently while
functioning as part of a research team. The position is available from 1
January 2015.

The SMG's current research ranges from fieldwork (on Daghestanian,
Oto-Manguean, Slavonic, Atlantic, Papuan and Tibeto-Burman languages) to
morphological theory (especially Network Morphology), linguistic typology
(including Canonical Typology) and computational modelling. At School level,
the School of English and Languages offers a collaborative and successful
research environment, and within this, the SMG has research projects funded by
the European Research Council, the AHRC and the ESRC.

Informal enquiries may be made to Dr. Matthew Baerman (email below) or
Professor Greville Corbett (g.corbett at surrey.ac.uk).
