The Department of Culture and Identity at Roskilde University, Denmark, is
offering a Ph.D. scholarship granted under the auspices of the Centre for
Cultural and Linguistic Practices in the International University (CALPIU) by
the Danish Research Council for Culture and Communication.
The centre invites applicants to propose projects dealing with student-student
or student-administration (e.g. supervision) communicative interaction within
international study programmes.
The successful applicant should have a background in
Ethnomethodology/Conversation Analysis, Interactive Sociolinguistics or
Discourse Analysis, preferably in combination with studies in Anthropology,
Linguistics, Sociology or similar fields. The successful applicant should be
proficient in both Danish and English. It would be an advantage, but not a
requirement, to have some competence in one other language of relevance to
CALPIU, such as Polish or Mandarin.
The Ph.D. scholarship will be available from the 1st of August, 2009.
The scholarship will last for a period of three years. The successful applicant
will be asked to contribute 840 hours of work to the Department (teaching on one
of the Department's Master's programmes and disseminating research to a broad
audience etc.). Danish candidates should also expect, preferably, to carry out
research abroad for at least six months. The Department's research programme
cooperates with GradEast ("Forskerskole Øst"), and the Ph.D. candidate will be
expected to enrol in GradEast.
The salary and other terms of employment are based on the general agreement
between the Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional
Associations (AC). All qualified candidates are urged to apply regardless of
age, gender, religion or ethnic background.
The application must be in Danish or English and include a CV, documentation
(copies) of examinations passed, and a project description of a maximum of 5
pages. The description should include an outline of the problem area to be
studied, the research questions raised, the theoretical approach taken as well
as methodological considerations and a work and time plan. The project
description and other material should be forwarded in three copies.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such
can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non
Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be
offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers
only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any
gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting
your human resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills
in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure
that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny.
Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
