3 Grants in the International PhD Programme in Linguistics

Goal
The PhD places involve a research training and aim at the completion of a PhD
dissertation within a maximum of three years. As part of their training, PhD
students will take courses offered by the National Graduate School in
Linguistics (LOT).

Qualifications
Applicants should have an MA degree (or nearing completion, expected graduation
by August 2007) in theoretical linguistics, computational linguistics or
experimental linguistics (language acquisition, psycholinguistics, phonetics,
text linguistics). Applications in the field of dyslexia are particularly
welcome. Applicants should speak and write fluent English.

Grant conditions
The grant amounts to a monthly sum of €1400, payable at the beginning of each
month. It is allocated for a trial period of one year, to be extended upon
positive evaluation of the student's progress by a further two years (maximum).
The grant entitles students to supervision, office and library facilities,
assistance in finding housing as well as participation in the institute's
support system for linguistics-related expenses (including attending conferences
and LOT schools).

For legal reasons, no grants can be offered to permanent residents of the
Netherlands.
