The Australian Research Council Discovery Project ‘Landscape, language and culture in Indigenous Australia’ aims to determine how culture and social diversity interact with landscape in representing physical space in the minds and grammars of speakers of Australian Indigenous languages.

The project team is currently looking for a PhD student to work on the Kune variety of Bininj Kunwok (Gunwinyguan, Arnhem Land). During your PhD you will be collecting and analyzing first-hand data for the above project on Kune, under the supervision of Dr Maïa Ponsonnet, at the University of Western Australia. Remote enrolment and supervision arrangements can be arranged if the present logistical complications surrounding travel continue to apply into the future.
