Description of the research topic:

Discourse markers are intriguing objects of study for several reasons: they promise the researcher ready access to the very fabric of talk-in-progress, they bring up many of the questions concerning the pragmatics/semantics boundary; the differences between planned and unplanned discourse; the relationship between cohesion and coherence; gender-preferential and gender-exclusive differentiation; grammaticalisation and a variety of other phenomena that have long fascinated and puzzled linguists (and will most probably continue to do so). The ideal candidate will combine theoretical as well as empirical, multi-disciplinary as well as cross-linguistic approaches to the study of discourse markers.
