research groups of the Amsterdam Center for Language and
Communication (ACLC).

acquisition because a substantial part of the teaching load will be within
that field. Furthermore, the candidate should have demonstrable teaching
and research skills.

Candidates must submit a detailed PhD proposal according to the
guidelines published on the ACLC website (under 'vacancies')on a relevant
subject in the field of Scandinavian linguistics. They may contact the ACLC
director, Prof dr P.C. Hengeveld (p.c.hengevelduva.nl) to find a potential
supervisor that may assist them in the elaboration of this proposal. The
proposal will be evaluated with respect to viability, general scholarly
interest, relevance for the current ACLC and Departmental research target
areas, e.g.: The Language Blueprint and Learnability. Information about the
research targets and about the research groups working under the
auspices of the ACLC can be obtained from the ACLC website:
