Rice University's Department of Linguistics is seeking expressions of interest
from students to write a dissertation on language contact, variation and/or
change in Australian Indigenous languages. Funding is guaranteed for four years
(including stipend, tuition remission, field equipment and basic field work
expenses). The position is funded through NSF CAREER BCS-0643517 'Pama-Nyungan
and the Prehistory of Australia', awarded to Dr Claire Bowern. The start date is
August (Fall), 2008. The successful applicant would also complete the
requirements for a Rice linguistics PhD (for requirements, see
http://www.ruf.rice.edu/~ling/programs.html). General information about the
department and graduate program can also be found at this address.

While a first degree in linguistics is not required for entry into Rice's
program, applicants for this position should have a strong background in
linguistics. An MA is preferred, but BA candidates with a strong background in
the field are also welcome to apply.

*Procedure for Application*
Applicants for the position need to apply to Rice's linguistics program and
satisfy departmental admission requirements (application fee, GRE scores, TOEFL
scores (if applicable), letters of recommendation, transcripts, application
form, and other required application materials). Applicants should include in
their statement of purpose that they are applying for this position. They should
also state whether they would like to be considered in the general linguistics
application pool should this position go to another applicant. We can only
consider applications which have been submitted through official channels. In
addition, applicants should send a letter to the PI which includes a summary of
the student's background, interests, experience, and why they would like to work
on this project.
