Subject: Various Ling Fields, The Utrecht Institute of Ling, Netherlands

The Utrecht Institute of Linguistics OTS (http://www-uilots.let.uu.nl)
is a research institute of the Faculty of Arts of Utrecht
University. About a hundred researchers are involved of which 14 full
professors, about ten postdoctoral researchers and about 40 graduate
students. The goal of UiL OTS is to develop scientific expertise in
the area of language, speech and their use. The institute has
intensive relations with other scientific institutions in the
field. It is penholder of the National Graduate School in Linguistics
(LOT) and participates in the National research school of Logic
(OzsL).

UiL OTS is looking for ambitious and enthusiastic candidates for 

5 graduate positions (AiO's)
(vacancy No. 68215) 

who will contribute to the research of the systems that underlie
language, speech and their use. These positions are open per January
1, 2003. The research of UiL OTS comprises the following seven areas:
Syntax and Semantics, Morphology & Phonology, Computational
Linguistics & Logic, Phonetics, Language Development, Language Use and
Experimental Psycholinguistics. The research programme of UiL OTS
brings together research from different strands of linguistics and
related disciplines such as logic, computer science, cognitive
sciences, teaching, and the social sciences. Within the Netherlands
UiL OTS is the only research institute which brings together all these
different types of research. The research policy of UiL OTS is focused
on making full use of the added value associated with this
concentration of research.

Within the research programme of UiL OTS we strive for cooperation
between the different main disciplines of linguistics and related
disciplines outside of linguistics proper. Specific domains of
interdisciplinary cooperation involve a wide range of topics, varying
from research into the structure of the grammatical system (where
generative and logico-semantic approaches join forces) to text
evaluation and text design; from the set-up of a systematic data-base
concerning the variation between languages, to the division of labor
between components that are involved in language and speech; from
language acquisition to language pathology.

Candidates are invited to apply for one of these positions by sending
in their own research proposal in one of the fields of research of UiL
OTS. Candidates can also apply by sending in a proposal which is
based on one of the project summaries which can be found in the list
of summaries (project summaries).

The graduate position offers a Ph.D. training programme that leads to
a PhD thesis within a period of four years. As part of their PhD
training sudents follow PhD Courses organized by the National Graduate
School of Linguistics (Landelijke Onderzoeksschool Taalwetenschap
(LOT) and/or the research school in Logic (OzsL).

We are looking for ambitious candidates who show an enthusiasm for
scientific research and an evident interest in one of the areas of the
UiL OTS programme. Eligible candidates must be in possession of a
pre-doctoral academic degree (MA), in linguistics, phonetics,
psychology (specialisation psycholinguistics especially) or some other
language study with sufficient background in theoretical
linguistics. Those who will graduate shortly (but before September
2002) can also apply.

We offer an appointment as research assistent (AiO)(under the
provision of a positive evaluation after 1 year), or, for non-Dutch
candidates, entrance to the International PhD-programme, within a
stimulating and innovative research environment with many
international contacts (guest researchers, international co-operation
programmes) with a Ph.D. programme which offers possibilities for
advanced education in a broad area of linguistics, good experimental
and informational facilities, and excellent possibilities for
conferences. The salary will be in the range of Euro 1445 (before
taxes) (first year) growing to maximally Euro 2063 (before taxes) for
a full-time employment, in conformity with the Dutch legal conditions
(CAO Dutch Universities). Other employment conditions are also conform
these CAO conditions.
