PhD positions in Linguistics: Grammatical description of a language of the
Indian subcontinent
Institution: 	Linguistics Institute
Grammatical description of an endangered and hitherto undescribed or poorly
documented language of the Indian subcontinent

The grammar will consist of an analytical description of the phonetics and
phonology, morphology and morphosyntax, syntactic and pragmatic phenomena in
the language and include a lexicon and morphologically analysed texts. The
choice of languages will be made on the basis of the urgency of documentation
in view of the degree of language endangerment, and the potential
of the chosen language in terms of what light the language may shed on the
phylogeny of its language family and on Asian population prehistory. The
language description which will serve as the Ph.D. fellow’s doctoral
dissertation and represent a fundamental contribution to the field. The PhD
fellow will conduct fieldwork in order to gather the corpus of language data
which will form the basis of his or her description.

For our team we are looking for three highly motivated PhD students with
sufficient linguistic qualifications for admission to the Bern PhD programme
and relevant language competence. In addition to the benefit of expert
supervision, the Ph.D. fellows will take part in fortnightly seminars and
through their research may also participate in the Trans-Himalayan database
project of the Bern Linguistic Laboratory.
