University or Organization: Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium) 
Department: Centre for linguistics
Job Location: Brussels, Belgium 
Web Address: http://homepages.vub.ac.be/~wvdbussc/vacancy.html
Job Rank: Researcher  

Specialty Areas: Sociolinguistics; Historical Sociolinguistics


The Centre for Linguistics at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium)
currently has two vacancies for PhD research on

'Foundations for a European social history of language: Language planning
in Europe during the long 19th century (1794-1914).'

The project is part of ongoing historical-sociolinguistic research at the
Vrije Universiteit Brussel on language and society during the long 19th

Full details about the project can be found at the URL above.

The successful candidates should hold a Master's degree in
philology/linguistics but candidates from other disciplines with a strong
interest in social history and sociolinguistics are welcome to apply.
Knowledge of Dutch is not essential but willingness to acquire basic Dutch
language skills during the project is a plus.

Candidates should be aware that the research will encompass a strong
comparative dimension (for example by integrating separate national
case-studies on language planning in a larger European context, or by
analysing crucial factors in various types of language policy across Europe
at the time). 

The candidates are expected to conduct research that will lead to a
finished PhD dissertation after 4 years.

The successful candidates will in principle be based in Brussels but
collaboration with a foreign research institute can be considered.  

Interested candidates can send a CV, a short text explaining their intended
approach to the project and a copy of their Master's thesis to the address
or email address below.

All queries regarding the vacancies and the project can be sent to that
same address.

We offer a full PhD scholarship (for 4 years in principle, renewable every
year); in addition, travel/project expenses can be covered.  

The positions are vacant as of January 1st or February 1st, 2011.
Please respond before December 10th, 2010.
