2 Ph.D. positions on tone and intonation: The Leiden University Center for Linguistics invites applicants for two Ph.D.
positions in experimental phonetics, where you are encouraged to combine knowledge and skills from language documentation, laboratory phonology, computational linguistics, and psychology. The positions are funded by a Vici grant from the
Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research for research on speech melody (Project Summary; https://www.universiteitleiden.nl/en/research/research-projects/humanities/melody-in-speech
). We look for Ph.D. candidates who have a
background in linguistics (or related disciplines such as speech and hearing sciences, psycholinguistics, or cognitive sciences) and are interested in basic research on language sound systems and speech communication with a focus on tone
and intonation in understudied languages.
Application date and requirements: To receive the fullest consideration, applications should arrive no later than December 1, 2021, but the positions will remain open until filled. The
earliest starting date is Feb. 1, 2022, but a later date is possible. Please include a motivation letter; a detailed curriculum vitae; a sample academic writing; and the names, affiliations, and contact information of two referees.
