Description:

Call for applications for a funded PhD position to research the production and/or comprehension of Control structures (and related structures) in linguistically impaired population, at CLUL (University of Lisbon’s Centre of Linguistics).

Information about the institution:
CLUL is a Portuguese public R&D institution founded in 1932 as a centre of philological studies, having developed into a research centre in linguistics that expanded its activities and scientific intervention over time. The centre is hosted by the Faculty of Letters of the University of Lisbon (FLUL) and committed to research and development in the field of linguistics, with a
particular emphasis on Portuguese − including dialectal, diachronic, social and national varieties − and on Portuguese-related Creoles.

The grantee will be hosted by CLUL’s Grammar & Resources (G&R) group, which is dedicated to modeling linguistic knowledge, integrating interfaces between different areas of grammar and knowledge about how language is put to use, with particular foci on language acquisition, grammatical description, language contact, computational and corpus linguistics.

Position:
CLUL is offering a PhD scholarship for a candidate who will develop a project on the production and/or comprehension of Control structures (and related structures) in linguistically impaired population (children diagnosed with Developmental Language Disorder or Autism Spectrum Disorder with language impairment; or adults with aphasia). The scholarship is initially offered for 2 years and may be renewed up to an additional period of 18 months pending the performance of the grantee and funding availability. The successful candidate is expected to start in October 2021.

Complete information on the candidate’s desired profile, submission requirements and evaluation criteria can be found at the application link provided below.

Queries about the application and selection process should be directed to Silvana Abalada, CLUL secretary, at the contact information below.
