Call for Applications
Visiting Researcher Programme
ESRC Centre for Research on Bilingualism in Theory and Practice

The new ESRC Centre for Research on Bilingualism in Theory and Practice at
Bangor University, in North Wales, seeks applications from researchers
around the world for its Visiting Researcher programme. The Centre has as
its main focus the promotion of research into all aspects of bilingualism,
from a variety of perspectives and in a variety of contexts. There are four
research groups in the Centre, focusing on four strands of theoretical and
practical issues related to bilingualism. You can obtain information on
these groups and on the Centre in general in our leaflet and at our
website, at http://bilingualism.bangor.ac.uk/.

The purpose of the Visiting Researcher programme is to encourage and foster
high quality research in bilingualism, to provide a sabbatical or temporary
'home' for bilingualism researchers who wish to interact with other
researchers at the Centre, and to encourage interaction and collaboration
among researchers from both outside and inside the Centre. Visiting
Researchers will be provided with office space and will have full access to
the facilities of the Centre.

Research Visits at the Centre would normally cover periods of a few days up
to a year. Applicants may apply for support to cover travel expenses to
and from the Centre and living expenses while staying in Bangor. In some
cases, the Centre may be able to provide income support for a researcher
who is on unpaid leave from his/her home institution. Applications will be
accepted for costs normally ranging from £1,000 to £10,000, but awards will
be allotted according to the funds available and the perceived needs.

Interested parties should fill out the application form, outlining their
proposed plans for research and estimated costs, and attach a short c.v.

Deadline for application for a visit any time from spring 2008 through
summer 2009, is December 10, 2007.

For further information, please email the Centre at r.a.ieuanbangor.ac.uk,
or write to Prof. V. Mueller Gathercole, Co-Director, ESRC Centre for
Research on Bilingualism in Theory and Practice, and Head of Centre's
Visiting Researcher Programme, Bangor University: v.c.gathercolebangor.ac.uk.
