The doctoral fellow is expected to propose a thesis/dissertation

to linguistic diversity. The project might deal with the analysis of
typological databases or with the analysis of diachronic
relationships, but other proposals pertaining to the quantification of
linguistic diversity are also invited.

The fellow should already have an MA in Linguistics or an equivalent
qualification, and be either registered or qualified to register in a

October 2004, but a later starting date may be negotiated.

Good knowledge of English is required.
