PhD positions in Linguistics

The Department of Linguistics announces 2 PhD student positions within the
fields of Child Language Development and Linguistic Typology and Language
Documentation. Ref.nr SU FV-2638-16. 
Application deadline: 2016-10-15

Linguistic typology and language documentation:

This position is associated with the department’s strong research profile in
linguistic typology, language documentation and related aspects in the study
of linguistic diversity. The dissertation should therefore be theoretically
and methodologically linked to one of those focal areas of research, and be
based on empirical material derived from one or more languages, preferably
with a cross-linguistic or diachronic perspective. This could, for instance,
take the shape of a cross-linguistic and systematic comparison of a particular
phenomenon or a grammatical construction, by means of a sample, either with an
areal, world-wide or a language-family scope. It could also be in the form of
a fieldwork-based and typologically informed treatment of an individual
undocumented or lesser studied language, alternatively focusing on a
particular aspect of the language system. (For our policy on funding of
fieldwork, please see separate documentation.)

In addition to courses and dissertation work, the applicant is expected to
participate in departmental activities, such as seminars and regular meetings
held with the research group, and in that way contribute to a positive
research environment.

Application is made through the electronic application interface. Admission
requirements and selection criteria are stated in the announcement.

Application Deadline: 15-Oct-2016
