Dear all,


The scholarship was announced by the Hermann-Paul School of Linguistics (HPSL), but not by the Freiburg Research Group in Saami Studies. Therefore several students from a diverse range of fields inside linguistics and with interest in different languages will likely compete about this job opportunity. I am not in the position to pick a PhD student, but a committee at HPSL will decide.

Only parts of the Saami corpora we are working with in Freiburg today come from the DoBeS project carried out between 2005-2010 by myself in collaboration with Elisabeth Scheller and several other PI's, assistants, consultants, etc. More data for which we have the consent or right to use where made available by other projects or single researchers. We also cooperate with different language archives and last but not least there is extensive printed corpus data available.

Answers to Elisabeth:

If you have comments or suggestions on the text of the job announcement and the languages it should be translated into please contact HPSL's secretary.

It is definitely possible to explicitly invite Saami and Komi students to apply for the scholarship. Just spread the word! Beside the present list I have also already sent the information - in different languages - to other relevant lists and single persons working in Murmansk, Syktyvkar and many other places 

I am not familiar with the regulations for PhDs at the Philological Faculty in Freiburg. Perhaps it is possible to write a dissertation in Russian. 

Feel free to contact me directly for more information on Freiburg and the scholarship.
