across languages in the domain of anaphoric relations and realising a
typological data base in the area of anaphora. A project proposal is
available on request or can be downloaded from our internet-site:, see Vacant Positions.

linguistic theory, more specifically in the area of anaphora, and
experience with cross-linguistic (descriptive) research. Experience
with developing databases will be considered an advantage. The
researcher will participate in an (inter)national project, funded by
the Dutch National Science Foundation, in which an overarching
typological meta-database system is developed that is able to link
separate databases in such a way that one can question a set of
databases. The project proposal will be sent upon request or can be
downloaded from our internet-site.

international contacts, a program which offers possibilities for
collaboration with specialists in a broad area of linguistics, good
