Subject: Research position vacant
The Australian National Place Names Project has a 2-year research
position available, suitable for a post-doctoral student with
experience in toponymy and dialect research.
The aim of the National Place Names Project is to construct a
comprehensive database of an estimated 4 million Australian place
names, compiled on a linguistic, etymological and historical basis.
The appointee will develop the methodologies, the procedures and the
regional structures that are necessary for the Project to succeed.
I won't take up further bandwidth with details; anyone who is
interested could e-mail me direct, and I can send the information
package. Closing date for applications is 1 September.
