TweetThis! PhD Research Studentship

Surrey Morphology Group
Faculty of Arts and Human Sciences, English Department
(for three years, subject to satisfactory progress)

£13,290 maintenance grant per annum
(funded by the European Research Council)

The Surrey Morphology Group invites applications for a PhD Studentship funded by the European Research Council as part of the MORPHOLOGY project.

Applications are invited for a Research Studentship leading to a PhD in the Surrey Morphology Group, for three years, starting either July 1, 2009 or October 1, 2009. This post is part of a larger European Research Council-funded project on morphological complexity (the MORPHOLOGY project) awarded to Professor Greville Corbett, Dr Matthew Baerman and Dr Dunstan Brown.

The MORPHOLOGY project investigates the contribution of inflectional morphology to linguistic complexity, and in particular the role of autonomous morphological systems, such as inflection classes and many-to-one correspondences, which constitute a level of structure distinct from the functional categories they express. The current position is the first of two PhD studentships on the project and it is dedicated to the study of inflectional classes.

The studentship includes a maintenance grant of £13,290 per annum. Applicants are expected to have a good first degree and a grounding in linguistics. The post will be particularly appealing to applicants interested any of the following areas: morphology; syntax; typology; computational linguistics. The successful applicant will pursue a specific agreed topic related to inflectional classes within the overall project, and will benefit from being part of a larger team, within a research group. The ability to work collaboratively and to meet deadlines is essential.

Details of the Surrey Morphology Group can be found at: http://www.surrey.ac.uk/LIS/SMG/
Informal enquiries may be made to Dr Matthew Baerman (m.baerman@surrey.ac.uk ).

To apply, please send: a covering letter explaining how you meet the criteria specified on the 'further intormation sheet' which can be found on http://www.surrey.ac.uk/jobs/ ; one page outlining why you are interested in morphological complexity; and a CV including the names of two referees. These should be sent to Melanie Mullally, Surrey Morphology Group, University of Surrey, Guildford, GU2 7XH or emailed tol.mack@surrey.ac.uk Please include the reference MORPHOLOGY/PhD in your application and supply your postal address.

The closing date for applications is May 13 2009. Interviews are expected to be held on June 4 2009.
