PhD Scholarships in Cognitive Linguistics, Discourse Analysis, Spoken Language, University of Northumbria
Posted by: admin In: Languages and Linguistics
The School of Arts and Social Sciences at Northumbria University is offering a number of full-time PhD studentships to commence in October 2012. The division of Linguistics and English Language in the Department of Humanities is inviting applications from applicants who have a broad interest in cognitive linguistics and/or discourse analysis. Applications are welcome from students interested in empirical approaches (including both corpus and experimental methods) and the study of spoken language.
The school is looking to recruit candidates who can demonstrate a strong performance in their undergraduate degree (probably first class) as well as a good MA or MSc qualification or equivalent experience. However, candidates straight from undergraduate degrees where there is evidence of exceptional academic ability are considered.
Successful applicants will receive:
- A full fee waiver (home and EU students only) for three years full time;
- A bursary of £13,590 per annum for three years (full time);
- Access to funds to support research expenses (conferences or archive visits).
Please follow the application guidelines at http://www.northumbria.ac.uk/sassstudentshipsft2012.

Application Deadline: 27-Apr-2012.
