The Faculty of Languages and European Studies of the
University of the West of England (Bristol) is offering
a research studentship from January 1999 onwards. Although
the studentship is open for candidates from many different
disciplines within the field of European Studies, readers
of the linguist list may wish to draw the attention of
potential candidates with interests in Linguistics to the
The candidate's work will be associated with the research
activities of the Linguistics Research Unit within the
Centre for European Studies. Currently research within the
Centre concentrates on Bilingualism and Language Contact,
Sociolinguistics and (Bilingual) First Language
Acquisition. The Faculty is rapidly expanding its provision
in Linguistics, with the start of a new Linguistics
Half Award in which students study Linguistics in
combination with either Sociology or Psychology or
Languages. Researchers from the Faculty of Languages and
the Faculty of Social Sciences are jointly
organising the Sociolinguistics Symposium in the year 2000.
Candidates should have obtained a first or good second
class honours degree in an area broadly within the
Humanities, Social Sciences or Linguistics. Any additional
relevant qualification and/or experience, in particular an
initial postgraduate qualification, would be a distinct
advantage. Familiarity with at least one foreign society
and fluency in that society's language are crucial. You
will be expected to take an active part in the Faculty's
research workshops and seminars.
The studentship is available for up to three years,
depending on satisfactory outcomes of annual reviews. It
carries an annual bursary of 6,000. This includes
part-time fees for up to three hours teaching/week over a
maximum of 24 weeks. In addition, enrolment and
registration fees will be paid by the Faculty, bringing up
the total value to around 8,750. Enquiries about the
studentship should be made to the Director of Research,
Professor Gisela Shaw, tel. 00-44-117-9763914, ext. 2385,
email: Gisela.Shaw at uwe.ac.uk.
Any question regarding project proposals in Linguistics can
be directed to Jeanine Treffers-Daller
(Jeanine.Treffers-Daller at uwe.ac.uk).
The deadline for receipt of applications is 13 November
