 3 Graduate Student Positions in Syntax/Phonology
 at the Grammatical Models Group
 CLS/Tilburg University

The Grammatical Models Group (GM) at the Center for Language Studies (CLS)
at Tilburg University invites applications for admission from prospective
graduate students. The GM-group (staff: Norbert Corver, Ben Hermans, Riny
Huybregts, Henk van Riemsdijk (chair) and Craig Thiersch) is specialized
in syntax and phonology, and within CLS it is integrated with groups working
on formal semantics, computational linguistics, psycho- and socio-linguistics,
and phonetics. More information about CLS can be obtained from Marleen van
de Wiel (CLSKUB.NL).

The program leads to a Ph.D. degree in four years. Classwork requirements
are organized within LOT, the collaborative network of Dutch graduate schools
in linguistics.

Candidates are expected to have some background in formal grammar.
Applications should be accompanied by a statement of purpose, a curriculum
vitae, a sample of recently written papers (if any), and three names
(preferably with e-mail addresses) of persons wiling to write a letter of
recommendation or to provide information about the candidate in some
other form. Deadline for the receipt of applications is October 15 1995.

Admission decisions may be expected by mid-November and the start of the
program is January 1, 1996. Successful applicants may expect to have tuition
waived and to receive a graduate stipend of about NLG 20'000.-- per year
(annually renewable for a maximum of four years, provided results are
satisfactory), that is, approximately NLG 1650.-- or US$ 1000.-- per month.
In addition, the usual facilities (desk, computer, some travel money)
are offered, as well as support with housing, immigrations, etc. (no
guarantees, though).

In addition to this, the Humanities Faculty of Tilburg University is in
the process of working out a scheme by which graduate students who finish
their Ph.D. in time are automatically granted a post-doc position at Tilburg
University for two years upon completion of their degree.

Applications should be sent in hard copy to:
