Applications are invited for a PhD scholarship provided by UNE as part

year for three years. Funds of around $25,000 will also be available
for field work expenses.
The ARC Project
This project will investigate, analyse and record the barely-known
languages of Southern New Guinea, stretching across Papua New Guinea
and Indonesia just north of the Torres Strait. It will produce
grammatical descriptions for six of the thirty languages of the area,
plus a comparative database and handbook of the languages of the region.
The successful candidate will be based at UNE and work on a language
of the Morehead-Maro family, in the Morehead district of Papua New
Guinea. S/he will be part of a research team headed by Prof Nicholas
Evans of the Australian National University (ANU), and including Prof
Jeff Siegel at UNE, and Dr Wayan Arka and two PhD students at ANU.
Applicants should hold an Honours degree (1 or 2A) in Linguistics, or
an equivalent qualification, and should be citizens of Australia or
New Zealand, or permanent residents of Australia.
