We invite scholars from non-EU countries working in the fields of language
processing, impaired and/or unimpaired language acquisition,
neurolinguistics and/or clinical linguistics to submit applications for
participation as a visiting scholar to the European Masters Programme in
Clinical Linguistics (EMCL). Three visiting scholars will join the
programme for a period of three months at the University of Potsdam
(Germany) during the summer term 2009.
The EMCL programme is part of the Erasmus Mundus initiative of the European
Union (see http://ec.europa.eu/education/programmes/mundus/index_en.html
for information on the initiative). The Erasmus Mundus programme provides a
scholar mobility grant of € 4.000 per month for visiting scholars from
non-EU countries accepted to the programme.
Please find further information about the course, the application process
as well as contact info below.
The EMCL programme
The Erasmus Mundus EMCL ('European Master's in Clinical Linguistics')
course is a 15 month full-time interdisciplinary and transnational
university programme at Master's level. It provides integrated training in
theoretical and experimental neurosciences and psycholinguistics with
clinical issues. The aim of the Master's 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,
students write a Master's thesis. All courses are taught in English.
The Erasmus Mundus mobility scholarship for visiting scholars
The programme recruits students as well as visiting scholars worldwide. In
order to encourage application by visiting scholars from all over the world
and thus give the EMCL-programme a strong global profile, visiting scholars
from non-EU countries accepted to the programme will receive an Erasmus
Mundus scholar mobility grant (€ 4.000 per month). Prerequisites for
application as visiting scholar to the EMCL programme are a PhD degree and
an active and excellent research record in the fields mentioned above and
an excellent command of English.
When, where and what?
Visiting scholars will join the programme for three months during the third
(i.e. summer) term at the University of Potsdam (mid April – mid July
2009). They are expected to actively participate in the programme by
offering a regular seminar, 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 15, 2008 (application deadline for the 2008/09
programme). For more detailed information on the programme, the application
process and download of the application documents, please visit our website at
