Description:

Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) offers funding for graduate research
at the MA and PhD level at the newly established Memorial University
Sociolinguistics Laboratory (MUSL). Current projects within a variationist
paradigm investigate rapid social change, identity, and language maintenance.
The focus is on Newfoundland English, a highly internally diverse dialect, and
historically related varieties, including African American English and Caribbean
English Creoles.

Research advantages include CFI-funded laboratories for sociolinguistics,
phonetics, and aboriginal languages; large sound recording archives, permitting
real-time analyses; Canada's top-ranked comprehensive university library; and
three faculty sociolinguists (two full-time, one emerita), including a Canada
Research Chair.
(http://www.chairs.gc.ca/web/chairholders/viewprofile_e.asp?id=2075&)

Qualified candidates will receive competitive entrance and excellence
scholarships, research and teaching assistantships, and potential teaching
opportunities. All MUN students, including international students, qualify for
government-funded health insurance, and pay tuition fees that are among the
lowest in North America. We are located in St. John's, an attractive
culture-friendly city with a temperate maritime climate and affordable housing.

For general information about our graduate programs and submitting an
application, consult the Linguistics Department website listed above.
