Call for applications for a funded PhD position in language contact involving Portuguese in African settings, at CLUL (University of Lisbon’s Centre of Linguistics).
Information about the institution:
CLUL is a Portuguese public R&D institution founded in 1932 as a centre of philological studies, having developed into a research centre in linguistics that expanded its activities and scientific intervention over time. The centre is hosted by the Faculty of Letters of the University of Lisbon (FLUL) and committed to research and development in the field of linguistics, with a particular emphasis on Portuguese − including dialectal, diachronic, social and national varieties − and on Portuguese-related Creoles.
The grantee will be hosted by CLUL’s Grammar & Resources (G&R) group, which is dedicated to modeling linguistic knowledge, integrating interfaces between different areas of grammar and knowledge about how language is put to use, with particular foci on language acquisition, grammatical description, language contact, computational and corpus linguistics.
CLUL is offering a PhD grant of up to 4 years for a candidate to develop a project on language contact involving Portuguese and the national languages (Bantu or creole languages) in contexts characterised by the (advanced) nativisation of Portuguese, namely Angola, Mozambique, and São Tomé e Príncipe. Research should focus on the syntax-semantic interface, or other topics consistent with the objectives of the G&R group.
Complete information on the candidate’s desired profile, submission requirements and evaluation criteria can be found at the application link provided below.
Queries about the application and selection process should be directed to Silvana Abalada, CLUL secretary, at the contact information below.
