The Department of Linguistics seeks to appoint a scholar to carry out research on Papuan languages and their broader scientific implications.

The successful candidate will have an outstanding record of publication in relevant field(s), relative to their early career status. Candidates should provide a detailed statement of the research project(s) they plan in the short, medium and long terms, putting together an exciting, innovative and plausible program based on fieldwork and analysis, and including likely plans for future project funding.
The research outlined should be compatible but complementary with the Department's range of research interests, as outlined in the further particulars.
