    The University of Sheffield has PhD funding available (starting September
    2001) for a project involving the British National Corpus. The studentship
    is jointly held by the departments of English Language and Linguistics and
    Information Studies. A suitable candidate would have a project in mind
    involving the BNC and be able to draw on expertise from both of these
    departments. We welcome proposals in the following areas of corpus

    lexical statistics, word frequency, lexical innovation, lexicography
    text type/register/genre analysis
    discourse analysis
    variation and change
    text retrieval, text processing
    text markup
    computing in the humanities

    Please note that this is a university studentship and so fees are paid at
    the home rate only. If the candidate is not from the EU, funding must be
    available to make up the difference between home and overseas fees.

    Arrangements for supervision:

    The successful candidate will be a member of the Department of English
    Language and Linguistics which forms part of the School of English. The
    project will be jointly supervised by Dr Claire Cowie and Dr Claire Warwick
    from the department of Information Studies. Dr Cowie works on word-formation
    and lexical innovation in historical corpora, with particular reference to
    register differences. Dr Warwick works on humanities computing, with a
    particular interest in the application of computers to the study of English
    literature and language. She was previously part of the BNC project team.
