Graduate Student Positions in Syntax/Phonology at CLS/Tilburg University

The Grammatical Models Group (GM) at the Center for Language Studies
(CLS)/ Tilburg University invites applications for admission from
prospective graduate students. The GM- group (staff: Henk van Riemsdijk 
(chair), Hans Broekhuis, Ben Hermans, Riny Huybregts, and Craig Thiersch) is
specialized in syntax and phonology, but within CLS it is integrated with 
groups working on formal semantics, computational linguistics, psycho- and
sociolinguistics, and phonetics. More information about CLS can be
obtained from: Riny Huybregts ( You may also

The program leads to a Ph.D. degree in four years. Classwork
requirements are organized within LOT, the collaborative network of Dutch 
graduate schools in linguistics.

In view of the current composition of our group, applications from
prospective syntacticians and/or phonologists are particularly welcome.

Candidates are expected to have some background in linguistics. For
most countries this means that they should have completed an MA degree or
hold an equivalent diploma. Applications should be accompanied by a
statement of purpose, a curriculum vitae, a sample of recently written papers 
(if any), and three names (preferably with e-mail addresses) of people
willing to write a letter of recommendation or to provide information about the
candidate in some other form. Furthermore, students whose native
language is not Dutch or English should submit satisfactory evidence for their
proficiency in English. Deadline for the receipt of applications is
March 1, 2001.

We expect to be able to accept a maximum of two new graduate students.
Admission decisions may be expected by April 1. The program starts in
September 2001. 

Successful applicants may expect a waiver of all tuition. Furthermore,
the usual facilities (desk, computer, some travel money) are offered, as
well as support with housing and immigrations (however, no guarantees can be
given). In addition, a graduate student salary is available for a small
number of successful applicants. Candidates admitted are offered
financial support in the form of a graduate student salary of minimum 
NLG 3'159 (first year) and maximum NLG 4'511 (fourth year) gross per month. 
These figures correspond approximately to US$ 1350.-- and US$ 1930.--
respectively. Salaries are annually renewable for a total of four
years, provided results are satisfactory.

Applications are to be sent to:
