Research Studentship (Russian) in the Surrey Morphology Group
Applications are invited for a full-time Research Studentship for three years available immediately, leading to a PhD in the Surrey Morphology Group, to be taken up no later than 1 June 2005. This post is for the AHRB-funded Project ‘Short-term Morphosyntactic Change’ awarded to Professor Greville Corbett, Dr Matthew Baerman and Dr Dunstan Brown. The successful candidate will work primarily with these three researchers and with Dr Alexander Krasovitsky, the Research Fellow on the project, but will also collaborate with other members of the SMG. The project will investigate the remarkable change in the use of morphosyntactic categories in Russian over the last two hundred years.
The studentship will comprise tuition fees and maintenance (rising from £10,500 in the first year). Applicants should have a First or good Upper Second Class degree in an appropriate discipline, with a postgraduate qualification (completed or in progress) or some postgraduate experience. To meet the AHRB’s criteria for a full award, candidates must show a relevant connection with the UK, usually through residence. Nationals of member states of the EU other than the UK may be eligible for a fees-only award.
Candidates should have an excellent knowledge of Russian, practical and conceptual. The ability to work collaboratively and to meet deadlines is essential.
The candidate will pursue a specific agreed topic within the overall project.
