Subject: West-Germanic Lang/Historical Ling: Researchers, the Netherlands


In the framework of a research programme grant for three researchers,
titled 'the Diachrony of Complex Predicates in West-Germanic', two
four-year paid positions are available for research leading to a doctoral
thesis.

The research programme is directed by professors Geert Booij (Vrije
Universiteit Amsterdam) and Ans van Kemenade (University of Nijmegen), and
funded to a large extent by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific
Research, NWO. Beside the two positions for PhD students, it comprises a
postdoctoral project with Dr. Bettelou Los as the researcher. The aim of
the programme is to come to an extensive, indepth, theoretically inspired
and corpus-based study of the historical development of separable complex
verbs in the West-Germanic languages. The postdoctoral project focusses on
Gothic and German. One PhD projects focusses on the history of Dutch, and
will be conducted at the Vrije Universiteit under the direction of prof.
Geert Booij; the other PhD project concentrates on (Middle) English, and
will be conducted at the University of Nijmegen under the direction of
prof. Ans van Kemenade.

Requirements: candidates for both PhD projects should have affinity with a
theoretical approach as well as with detailed data research in computerized
corpora. The institutional embedding of the projects will ensure some
further training in both of these aspects. For the project on Dutch we seek
a candidate with undergraduate training in Dutch, with a specialism in
language/(historical) linguistics, or in linguistics with Dutch as the main
language. For further information, contact booijlet.vu.nl. For the project
on English, we seek a candidate with undergraduate training in English,
with a specialism in language/(historical) linguistics. For further
information, contact a.v.kemenadelet.kun.nl.
