Three Ph.D Studentships in Linguistics (Ref.nr SU 617-2167-09)

The Department of Linguistics at Stockholm University invites
applications for three four-year studentships within its Ph.D.
programme in Linguistics with a specialization in General Linguistics
and/or Phonetics, with start date January 1, 2010. The thesis project
should involve one or both of the profile areas of the department,
namely, language typology (see http://www.ling.su.se/ASV/engelska/eng-
text.html) or early language acquisition in children.

The deadline for applications is October 29th, 2009. Applications
should be sent by ordinary mail to Stockholms universitet,
Registrator/PA, 106 91 Stockholm, Sweden, and should include the
following:

1.    CV with information about earlier studies, jobs and publications;
2.    a copy of written works that are referred to in the application;
3.    contact information for two reference persons;
4.    a sketch of up to 6,000 characters describing a possible thesis
project.

Please indicate the reference number Ref.nr SU 617-2167-09 on your
application! Further inquiries should be directed to Professor Maria
Koptjevskaja Tamm (tamm at ling.su.se) for General Linguistics, and
Professor Francisco Lacerda (frasse at ling.su.se) for Phonetics.

A Ph. D Studentship in Computational Linguistics (Ref.nr SU 617-2168-09)

The Department of Linguistics at Stockholm University invites
applications for a four-year studentship within its Ph.D. programme
in Computational Linguistics, with start date January 1, 2010.

We would especially welcome thesis projects with a potential for
cross-fertilizing areas within the department and/or with partners in
the Human Language Technology Center in the Stockholm–Uppsala
University Network (http://www.uu.se/suun/eng/hltcenter.php). For
example, the thesis project might involve one of the profile areas of
the department, language typology (see http://www.ling.su.se/ASV/
engelska/eng-text.html) or early language acquisition in children. It
might also relate to activities within the Userware Laboratory at the
Swedish Institute of Computer Science (SICS), such as data-oriented
models of semantics. Examples of other such cross-border areas are
symbolic and statistical methods for parsing and computational
linguistics for under-resourced languages.

The deadline for applications is October 29, 2009. Applications
should be sent by ordinary mail to Stockholms universitet,
Registrator/PA, 106 91 Stockholm, Sweden, and should include the
following:

1.    CV with information about earlier studies, jobs and publications;
2.    a copy of written works that are referred to in the application;
3.    contact information for two reference persons;
4.    a sketch of up to 6,000 characters describing a possible thesis
project.

Please indicate the reference number Ref.nr SU 617-2168-09 on your
application! Further inquiries should be directed to Associate
Professor Mats Wirén (mats.wiren at ling.su.se).


General information

Applicants must have an undergraduate degree including at least an
equivalent of the Swedish “magister” programme in General
Linguistics. This programme focuses on linguistic theory and
comprises four years of study including the writing of two research
papers. Applicants from all countries are welcome. Knowledge of
Swedish is not a formal requirement but students are strongly advised
to acquire a working knowledge of Swedish as soon as possible
(language courses are offered by the university). Additional details
on the general admission requirements for postgraduate studies at
Stockholm University can be found at http://www.su.se/english/study/
postgraduate-studies.

During the period of the studentship, the student is a regular
employee of the University. The beginning salary is SEK 21,600 a
month (approximately € 2,100 or USD 3,100).

The first period of employment is for one year. The employment
contract can then be renewed for at most two years at a time, up to a
total of four years, or, if the student accepts teaching or
administrative duties at the department (not exceeding 20% of full
time), maximally five years.

The Department of Linguistics at Stockholm University (http://
www.ling.su.se) has about 60 employees, which makes it one of the
larger departments at the Faculty of Humanities. The department is
organized into six sections, namely, General Linguistics,
Computational Linguistics, Phonetics, Sign Language for the Deaf,
Swedish for the Deaf, and Modern Greek. The research at the
Department of Linguistics belongs to one of fifteen areas at
Stockholm University which have been graded as “leading research” in
the sense of being nationally leading and having a high international
status (see http://www.su.se/english/research/leading-research-areas/
humanities-law-and-social-sciences). The department is a member of
the Human Language Technology Center in the Stockholm–Uppsala
University Network (http://www.uu.se/suun/eng/hltcenter.php), and
participates in the Swedish National Graduate School of Language
Technology (GSLT, http://www.gslt.hum.gu.se/).
