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.

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 words describing a possible thesis project.

Please indicate the reference number Ref.nr SU 617-2167-09 on your

_A Ph. D Studentship in Computation 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:

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 EUR 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/).
