Description:

The Amsterdam Center for Language and Communication (ACLC) has two
four-year PhD positions available for excellent candidates with an
excellent research proposal, starting September 2011.

The ACLC focuses on the description and explanation of variation in
language and language use. A key feature of the ACLC approach is that
linguistic phenomena are studied from the widest possible variety of
perspectives, both descriptive and theoretical, in order to ensure that the
findings are not accidental, but are truly representative of the basic
parameters that govern the organization of natural languages. The ACLC
includes both functional and formal approaches to language description and
encourages dialogue between these approaches. Studies cover all aspects of
speech and languages: phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics
and pragmatics. Language typology, including that of creole and signed
languages, plays an important part in the ACLC programme. Language
variation in terms of time, space and context is another specialisation.
The study of variation in the different types of language user - from the
child learning her first language to the adult second language learner
including also different types of language pathology - is also a clear focus.

The PhD proposal should fit within the ACLC research programme The Language
Blueprint, preferably also witin the research focus area Learnability.
Proposals futhermore focusing on foreign languages taught at the University
of Amsterdam are specifically invited. Your research proposal should follow
the guidelines available at the ACLC website, URL below, under Vacancies.

Requirements
MA in linguistics (or equivalent), obtained no longer than five years ago.

The PhD student will be appointed for a period of 4 years (80%) or 3.3
years (full time) at the Faculty of Humanities of the University of
Amsterdam under the terms of employment currently valid for the Faculty. A
contract will be given in the first instance for one year, with an
extension for the following years on the basis of an evaluation of, amongst
other things, a written piece of work. The salary (on a full time base)
will be EUR 2042 during the first year (gross per month) and will reach EUR
2612 during the fourth year, in accordance with the CAO for Dutch universities.
