PhD Position: Sign Language Linguistics
A PhD position in sign language research for a multi-disciplinary project is being offered at the University of Haifa, Israel (in the north of Israel, on the Mediterranean Sea).
The project is called The Grammar of the Body: A Multi-disciplinary Approach to Combinatoriality in Language. Inspired by the relation between bodily articulators and grammatical combinatoriality in sign languages, the research program is comprised of five subprojects that will investigate combinatoriality in sign language, gesture, and artistic performance. It will be funded by a European Research Council grant to Wendy Sandler, pending final contractual agreement.
This is a funded position for a linguistics student with knowledge of sign language who will be involved in collecting, organizing, coding, and analyzing data from village and deaf community sign languages, within the context of the project’s research program. The successful candidate will have a good background in linguistics, with some knowledge of sign language linguistics, and good skills in sign language and communication across sign languages from different cultures. Good English writing ability is also needed for this position. It is offered for three years, with a possibility for extension. The position can begin in February 2014 but can be postponed until the fall if more feasible.
Applications should be sent by email to wsandler
research.haifa.ac.il , including a cover letter and short research statement, CV, one or two research papers, and two letters of reference emailed directly from the referees.
Deadline: January 1, 2014.
