Faculty of Arts/Center for Language and Cognition Groningen (CLCG) announces the
following position: Ubbo Emmius Graduate Fellowship
The Ubbo Emmius positions are open only to foreign applicants. Dutch citizens
are not eligible due to tax restrictions.
There is one position available in computational linguistics. The computational
linguistics group was rated as 'excellent' in a recent evaluation. There are
research lines in parsing (van Noord), Question-Answering(Bouma), Phonology and
Language Learning (Bouma & Nerbonne), Semantics and Pragmatics (Egg), and tools
for dialectology and language contact study (Nerbonne).
We can only entertain applications seriously which are clearly related to one of
the existing research lines. We are particularly interested in strengthening the
semantics/pragmatics line, but we will accept applications in all areas related
to our research lines.
The positions should begin as soon as possible, no later than May 1, 2006. They
all require residence in Groningen, 38 hours/week research, and the stipends
must result in a PhD dissertation.
The Ubbo Emmius graduate students receive stipends of gross 1370 Euro per month,
normally with slight cost-of-living increases in later years. Graduate student
fellows receive a contract for one year extendible for three further years
subject to evaluation after the first year.
