The Amsterdam Center for Language and Communication (ACLC) has up to
two four-year PhD positions available for excellent candidates with an
excellent research proposal, starting September 2012.
Research at the ACLC:
The Amsterdam Center for Language and Communication focuses on the
description and explanation of variation in language and language use. A key
feature of the ACLC approach is that linguistic phenomena are studied from
the widest possible variety of perspectives, both descriptive and theoretical,
in order to ensure that the findings are not accidental, but are truly
representative of the basic parameters that govern the organization of natural
languages. The ACLC includes both functional and formal approaches to
language description and encourages dialogue between these approaches.
Studies cover all aspects of speech and languages: phonetics, phonology,
morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics. Language typology,
including that of creole and signed languages, plays an important part in the
ACLC programme. Language variation in terms of time, space and context is
another specialisation. The study of variation in the different types of
language user - from the child learning her first language to the adult second
language learner including also different types of language pathology - is also
a clear focus.
The PhD proposal should fit within the ACLC research programme, The
Language Blueprint, preferably also within the research focus area
Learnability (see ACLC website for more information). Proposals furthermore
focusing on foreign languages taught at the University of Amsterdam are
specifically invited. Your research proposal should follow the guidelines that
you will find on the ACLC website under Vacancies.
The PhD student needs to carry out the research and write a dissertation
within the contract period.
MA in linguistics (or equivalent), obtained no longer than five years ago.
Further information can be obtained from the managing director of the
research institute dr. Els Verheugd-Daatzelaar, contact information below.
The PhD student will be appointed for a period of up to 4 years (80%) at the
Faculty of Humanities of the University of Amsterdam under the terms of
employment currently valid for the Faculty. A contract will be given in the first
instance for one year, with an extension for the following years on the basis
of an evaluation of, amongst other things, a written piece of work. The salary
(on a full time base) will be EUR 2042 during the first year (gross per month)
and will reach EUR 2612 during the fourth year, in accordance with the CAO
for Dutch universities.
You can apply for one of the PhD positions to be filled September 1st 2012,
by submitting your own proposal before Tuesday, January 17th 2012 (January
16th 23:59 at the latest). The Guidelines on the ACLC website provide further
information on how to submit your proposal. Submissions of a proposal
should be sent to the director of the ACLC, prof. dr P.C. Hengeveld. They
should preferably be submitted electronically to the address aclc-fgwuva.nl.
Applications received after this date or those that are incomplete will not be
taken into consideration.
