A laboratory of linguistic anthropology will be created at TSU

A team of TSU scientists led by the Russian Academy of Sciences corresponding member Anna Dybo has received a so-called mega-grant from the Russian Ministry of Education to conduct research into languages and cultures of Southern Siberia. In the next three years, a laboratory of linguistic anthropology will be established at TSU. One of its tasks will be to create a database on languages of Southern Siberia: the Turkic languages – Chulym, Teleut, Shor, and Khakas, and the Uralic languages – Mansi, Khanty, and Selkup.

On November 8, there was an interview session held in order to recruit future fellows to work under the grant who will take part in the collection of data, description, and study of languages and cultures of indigenous population of Southern Siberia.

Employment options are:

  1. Doing technical work (piecework form of payment, ~ 400 RUB per hour and more);

Social anthropologists and linguists interested in linguistic anthropology and ethnology are welcome to join the project.
