The Holland Institute of Generative Linguistics (HIL) is a research
institute in the field of generative linguistics. Theoretical linguists of
Leiden University, the University of Amsterdam and the Vrije
Universiteit Amsterdam participate in this institute in order to further

the national Dutch Graduate School in Linguistics (LOT).

 4 graduate students

A graduate student holds a four-year contract and will complete a
doctorate at one of the universities participating in HIL. At least 85%
of a student's working time is intended for research and training. HIL
students take part in the graduate teaching programme of HIL and are
assigned a supervisor from the staff of HIL. They are exempted from
the payment of tuition fees. They receive a salary which provides
sufficient financial support to cover living expenses. HIL encourages
foreign students to apply for one of these positions.

training at a Dutch university or have a degree that is equivalent to
the Dutch `doctoraal examen' (such as an MA degree from a well-
known university); they should have adequate knowledge of English to
be able to participate in graduate courses, to discuss their work with
members of the staff and to write at an academic level; they should
have adequate knowledge of generative linguistics.

Applications for a position should contain:
