Erasmus Mundus EMCL (European Masters in Clinical Linguistics) programme:
invitation for visiting scholar applications
The Erasmus Mundus EMCL (‘European Masters in Clinical Linguistics’) course
is a 15 month full-time interdisciplinary and transnational university
programme at the Masters level providing integrated training in theoretical
and experimental neurosciences and psycholinguistics with clinical issues.
The aim of the Masters Course is to train highly qualified advanced
students who are excellently prepared for research work and PhD-programmes
in the above fields.
The transnational consortium comprises four universities: Groningen (NL),
Joensuu (FI), Milano-Bicocca (IT) and Potsdam (DE). The programme consists
of three terms: the core courses offered in the first term aim at providing
the students with general knowledge about the fields mentioned above.
During the second and third term, the students attend specialised courses.
For the second term, students may choose to move from their first host
university to another one, while all students meet at the University of
Potsdam during the third term. To finish the programme successfully, the
student writes a Masters thesis and attends a summer school or conference.
All courses are taught in English.
The programme recruits students worldwide and visiting scholars from
non-European countries. In order to encourage application by visiting
scholars from outside of Europe and thus give the EMCL-programme a strong
global profile, visiting scholars accepted to the programme will receive a
scholar mobility grant (€ 4.000 per month). Prerequisites for application
as visiting scholar to the EMCL programme are an active and excellent
research record in the fields mentioned above and an excellent command of
English, since all classes are taught in English.
Visiting scholars will join the programme for three months during the third
(i.e. summer) term at the University of Potsdam. They are expected to
actively participate in the programme, present their own work in research
seminars and provide support and advice for the participating students and
their research for the final theses.
We invite highly qualified scholars from all over the world to submit their
applications until January 1, 2007 (application deadline for the 2007/08
programme, which starts in September 2007). Admission of visiting scholars
is decided on at the annual meeting of the Board of Studies. Admitted
visiting scholars will join the EMCL-course during summer term 2008. For
