Subject: European Studies/Ling; PhD position at U of the West of England

The Faculty of Languages and European Studies of the University of the
West of England (Bristol) is offering a research studentship from
January 1999 onwards. Although the studentship is open for candidates
from many different disciplines within the field of European Studies,
readers of the linguist list may wish to draw the attention of
potential candidates with interests in Linguistics to the position.

The candidate's work will be associated with the research activities
of the Linguistics Research Unit within the Centre for European
Studies. Currently research within the Centre concentrates on
Bilingualism and Language Contact, Sociolinguistics and (Bilingual)
First Language Acquisition. The Faculty is rapidly expanding its
provision in Linguistics, with the start of a new Linguistics Half
Award in which students study Linguistics in combination with either
Sociology or Psychology or Languages. Researchers from the Faculty of
Languages and the Faculty of Social Sciences are jointly organising
the Sociolinguistics Symposium in the year 2000.

Candidates should have obtained a first or good second class honours
degree in an area broadly within the Humanities, Social Sciences or
Linguistics. Any additional relevant qualification and/or experience,
in particular an initial postgraduate qualification, would be a
distinct advantage. Familiarity with at least one foreign society and
fluency in that society's language are crucial. You will be expected
to take an active part in the Faculty's research workshops and

The studentship is available for up to three years, depending on
satisfactory outcomes of annual reviews. It carries an annual bursary
of 6,000. This includes part-time fees for up to three hours
teaching/week over a maximum of 24 weeks. In addition, enrollment and
registration fees will be paid by the Faculty, bringing up the total
value to around 8,750. Enquiries about the studentship should be made
