The candidate should be familiar with aspects of one or more of the following frameworks: language ecology, study of languages in contact, ethnolinguistics, second language acquisition, plurilingual didactics, applied sociolinguistics (especially language awareness and empowerment). The successful candidate will also be willing and able to engage in ethnographic fieldwork (participating observation of interaction in multilingual and multicultural environments, transcription and analysis of audiovisual recordings, creation and interpretation of questionnaires).
