The School of Languages and Cultures is seeking to appoint a Research
Associate to take part in a three-year project. It is funded by the UK’s
Arts and Humanities Research Council and will start on 1 June 2020.
The project, entitled Feast and Famine: Confronting Overabundance and
Defectivity in Language, looks at non-canonical inflectional morphology
in morphologically complex languages of central and eastern Europe. It
includes eight institutions across four countries: the UK, the Czech
Republic, Croatia and Estonia, and will be led by *Professor Neil Bermel
(University of Sheffield)* in collaboration with Professor Dunstan Brown
(University of York).
It represents an excellent opportunity for a suitably trained linguist
or psychologist to investigate a project of her/his own design, based on
data from a language of this region, while also working as part of a
collegial larger team seeking to shed light on these phenomena. We’re
looking to appoint someone who has:
* A PhD in linguistics, psycholinguistics, psychology of language,
cognitive science or a related relevant field (or have equivalent
* A research interest in one or more languages from the central and
east European area (Slavonic, Baltic or Finno-Ugric);
* A proven track record in experimental research on languages.
You will have the opportunity to define and carry out your own
investigation into one of the project’s experimental research questions.
These concern how speakers produce material that falls into overabundant
and defective paradigmatic slots and how they react to such material.
For a brief introduction to the project, please see the announcement at
