The emergence of Modern Hebrew as a case-study of linguistic discontinuity

MABAR offers doctoral and post-doctoral fellowships for researchers in the project for two years with a possibility of extension, starting October 2017.

The MABAR project, headed by Prof. Edit Doron, studies the characterisation of linguistic discontinuity: the extreme case of linguistic change due to linguistic contact. Case studies include the emergence of Modern Hebrew and other attempted cases of language revival.

Applicants must hold MA or PhD degrees in Linguistics or Hebrew Language, and have a proven academic record and strong interest in research of theoretical issues of syntax and semantics within the framework of formal theories of one or more of the following: historical linguistics, language acquisition and language contact.

Applicants are requested to submit the following materials:
- CV
- official transcripts
- two letters of recommendation by researchers who are familiar with the applicant’s work
- a one-page Statement of Purpose, in which they describe their academic interests and possible
research questions within the framework of the project
- photograph
