Description:

Dear all,

The Centre for Applied English Studies encourages applications for full-time and
part-time Ph.D or M. Phil from well-qualified candidates whose research interests
match those of the Centre for admission in September 2013. The Centre has
special expertise in a number of areas. It is particularly strong in linguistics as
applied to English language education at university level.

Our supervisors' research interests can broadly be classified into five areas:

Autonomy
- autonomous learning, self-access

Discourse Studies
- academic and professional literacies, discourse analysis (including written and
spoken), second language writing, writing across the curriculum

English Language Teaching
- assessment and evaluation, classroom interaction, curriculum development,
task-based learning

Language Learning
- computer-assisted language learning, individual differences in language learning,
learner histories, learning styles and strategies, psycholinguistics, second/third
language acquisition

Sociolinguistics
- code-mixing, conversation analysis, cross-cultural communication, humour,
identity construction, language contact, politeness; workplace communication

Full-time MPhil and PhD students who hold a first degree with second-class
honours first division (or equivalent) or above are normally considered eligible to
receive a Postgraduate Scholarship during the normative study period. (For your
information, the basic level of scholarship is HK$13,600 (US$1,740) per month for
the 2012-2013 academic year). Other scholarships are also available subject to
applicants' academic qualifications and relevant experiences.

Potential applicants may contact me in the first instance giving brief information
about qualifications and research topic.
