Description:

The Department of Modern Languages and the Department of English and Linguistics at The University of Birmingham invites applications for one funded PhD studentship to commence on 1 October 2019. The position is open to applicants who hold a BA qualification in English or Polish Language & Linguistics and will hold (by the start date) an MA, preferably in Teaching English or Polish as a Foreign Language.

The funded studentship is intended for writing a PhD dissertation in the framework of a Leverhulme-funded project led by Professor Dagmar Divjak in collaboration with Dr Petar Milin. The successful applicant will develop and test new ways of teaching case and aspect to English learners of Polish. More information about the project can be found here: https://outofourminds.bham.ac.uk.

The scholarship is available for three years full-time and will cover PhD tuition fees for UK/EU students, plus a stipend £14,777 per annum (2018/2019 Research Council rate; 2019/2020 rates to be confirmed).

Non-UK/EU students can apply but would be expected to cover the difference between international and UK/EU tuition fees themselves.

The grant also includes an annual allowance to attend conferences.

The post offers the opportunity to join a multidisciplinary team consisting of linguists, psychologists and computer scientists. You will receive training and development in corpus linguistics and psycholinguistics, in advanced statistical data analysis as well as in computational modeling and software engineering, according to your interests and future career plans.
