Description:

Funded Studentship in Descriptive/Applied Linguistics at King's College London.

A 3 year doctoral studentship in sociolinguistics, text linguistics, discourse
analysis, literacy studies, educational linguistics, or
cognitive/psycho-linguistics, starting in October 2006. The successful
candidate will be affiliated to the College's new Centre for Language, Discourse
& Communication.

King's College London is a major centre for research on language, communication,
society and education. We have particular interests in the dynamics of language
and literacy in globalisation and intercultural contact, and we focus on
language, literacy and discourse in everyday interaction, in education,
literature, and popular culture, in new & mass media, and in medical and
workplace settings. We work with English, English-based Creoles, Chinese,
German, Greek, Hindi, Spanish, Swedish and a range of minority languages, and we
combine linguistics with ethnography, anthropology, sociology, history, and
psychology, and with quantitative, corpus and discourse analysis. In recent
years, we have provided a base for more than a dozen externally funded research
projects; we have 20-30 MPhil/PhD students; we occupy a prominent position in
national and international research networks; and we run four seminar series and
five MAs ('World Englishes'; 'Language, Discourse & Communication' (MRes);
'Language, Ethnicity & Education'; 'ELT & Applied Linguistics; 'German
Linguistics'). Our research in discourse analysis, educational, text and
sociolinguistics was top-rated 5 and 5* in the last Research Assessment
Exercise. To capitalize on this expertise, the College is now setting up a
Centre for Language, Discourse & Communication. To find out more about our
activity, go to

The Studentship will provide funding for a minimum of three years, covering home
tuition fees and a stipend of £14,300 in the first year, increasing in line with
national levels in subsequent years. If you have got good qualifications (the
equivalent of BA 1 or 2.1 and/or a Distinction or Merit at Masters) and a
well-worked out idea for research that connects with our expertise, email:
