Subject: PhD position: Research Studentship

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 
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 seminars.
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, enrolment 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 to the Director of Research, 
Professor Gisela Shaw, tel. 00-44-117-9763914, ext. 2385, 
Any question regarding project proposals in Linguistics can 
be directed to Jeanine Treffers-Daller
