Message 1: Dutch & Phonetics/Phonology: PhD Student, Radboud University Nijmegen, Netherlands
Date: 16-May-2006
From: Carlos Gussenhoven <c.gussenhovenlet.ru.nl>
Subject: Dutch & Phonetics/Phonology: PhD Student, Radboud University Nijmegen, Netherlands

Institution/Organization: Radboud University Nijmegen
Department: Linguistics
Level: PhD
Duties: Research
Specialty Areas: Phonetics; Phonology
Required Language(s): Dutch (nld)


The Faculty of Arts of the Radboud University Nijmegen is seeking to fill a

PhD position in phonetic and phonogical structure

The PhD project Intonation in L2 Dutch aims to investigate the phonetic and
phonogical structure of the intonation and lexical tones (if any) of one
non-Germanic minority language spoken in the Netherlands (e.g. Berber,
Cantonese, Kurdish, Moluccan, Papiamentu, Saramaccan, Sranang, Turkish,
Vietnamese, etc.), in order to establish the differences and similarities
between the prosodic characteristics of this language and those of standard
Dutch as spoken by the same group of speakers. The choice of language will
depend on the successful candidate's preference, who may be a native
speaker of the minority language in question.

We are looking for an enthusiastic candidate with an MA in Linguistics or
an equivalent degree with a specialization in Linguistics, preferably with
an emphasis on phonetics and phonology.

The Faculty of Arts consists of eleven departments in the area of language
and culture, history, history of arts, linguistics and business
communication, which together cater to about 2,500 students and work
closely together in teaching and research.

Other information:
The position is part of the NWO-funded research programme Intonation in
Varieties of Dutch, which also includes a three-year post-doc position and
another PhD position. Project leaders are Prof.dr. C.H.M. Gussenhoven,
Prof.dr V.J. van Heuven (LU), Dr. M. van Oostendorp (Meertens Instituut)
and Dr. A. Rietveld.

Please include a CV and the names of two referees in your application.
