Description:

Call for applications for a funded PhD position in language contact, involving
the Portuguese-lexified creoles of Asia, 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.

Position:
CLUL is offering a PhD grant of up to 4 years for a candidate to develop a
project on language contact, involving the comparative study of the various
Asian-Portuguese creole languages (of India, Sri Lanka, Malacca, Java, Macau,
and Timor). Research should focus on the study of recurring linguistic
features in this group of languages, from a diachronic or synchronic
perspective.

Complete information on the candidate’s desired profile, submission
requirements and evaluation criteria can be found at the application link
provided below.
