Subject: International PhD Program in Linguistics, U of Munich

Ludwig-Maximilians-Universit�t M�nchen, Germany
International Doctoral Program in Linguistics (LIPP)	
''Language Theory and Applied Linguistics''

Application deadline: 15th June 2004 for the winter semester 2004/2005

The Ph.D. program LIPP offers

- an interdisciplinary, research-oriented, well-structured doctoral
 study program,
- intensive, individual supervision by highly qualified professors,
- an international program of guest speakers, as well as
- financial support for travel costs affiliated with international
 research projects.

The courses in the program are planned and taught by professors from
the 12 participating disciplines; they are specialists in their field
and represent a broad and interrelated spectrum of theoretical
positions, methodological approaches and practical applications. The
program is interdisciplinary and focusses on linguistic theory as well
as language use and their interrelation. Doctoral dissertations
comprise studies from a general linguistic viewpoint, comparative
approaches, the investigation of a specific language (synchronic or
historic), as well as studies of texts and discourses with a view to
their institutional context and the social significance and impact of
their language.

One of LIPP�s goals is to improve international cooperation and
scholarly multi-lingualism. Highly qualified doctoral candidates from
home and abroad are therefore especially encouraged to apply.


LIPP is a program which will lead to a Ph.D. within three years.
Credits are acquired in courses which are specifically geared to the
needs of the doctoral candidates.

The interdisciplinary program comprises four modules approaching
language from different perspectives:

- Language Phenomenology and Typology
- Empirical study of natural languages and its methodology
- Language and Society
- Language Theory and Language Modelling

The doctoral candidates participate in courses from all four
modules. After the doctoral dissertation has been accepted, the final
step is a defence of the dissertation.


Eligible candidates should have an excellent degree (Magister Artium,
diploma, Staatsexamen, Master of Arts (''with Thesis''), Ma�trise,
Laurea, etc.) in one of the subjects affiliated to the doctoral
program, in particular:

General Linguistics and Language Typology 
Theoretical Linguistics
Phonetics and Verbal Communication
Psycholinguistics and Science of Speech

English Philology / Linguistics

German as a Foreign Language / Transnational German Studies
