A Doctoral Research Fellowship (SKO 1017) in Spanish language and linguistics is available at the Department of Literature, Area Studies and European Languages (ILOS), University of Oslo. The fully funded 3-year PhD position is open to projects in lexical semantics and its interfaces with grammar and pragmatics, with an emphasis on Spanish.

We invite proposals for a PhD research project on one of a wide range of topics in the area of word meaning and the relations between word meaning and morphology, syntax, compositional semantics and pragmatics. Questions addressed in this area may concern, inter alia, lexical decomposition, meaning shifts in context, the division of labor between the lexicon, word formation and syntax, event structure and the lexicon, lexical presupposition triggers, or pragmatic markers. Proposals may focus exclusively on Spanish or on Spanish in comparison to other languages, preferably Mainland Scandinavian, German or English.

Priority will be given to a proposal with a clear formal theoretical profile and a strong empirical basis. The main supervisor for the project will be associate professor Alexandra Anna Spalek
