Description:

A position as a PhD fellow is available in the Section for Signed Language and Interpreting at the Department of Language and Literature, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, in Trondheim, Norway. The position is linked to a linguistics and language documentation project entitled “Language use in the Norwegian Deaf community: reflections of a signed language ecology” funded by the Research Council of Norway (https://prosjektbanken.forskningsradet.no/#/project/NFR/287067).

The main goal of the project is to investigate empirically the systematic and constantly evolving communication practices within Norwegian Sign Language interactions. Secondary objectives of the project include:

- the development of a linguistic corpus and lexical database,
- investigation of the multilingual repertoires by deaf people in Norway,
- investigation of indexicality and referential cohesion in Norwegian Sign Language, and
- investigation of depiction across the lexicon and grammar.

The PhD fellow’s project and doctoral dissertation will focus on some relevant topic related to the project and should engage and help to expand the language resources built by the project (namely, the linguistic corpus and lexical database).
