Level: PhD 

Duties: Research
Specialty Areas: Language Documentation; Pragmatics; Sociolinguistics 


The Department of Linguistics and English Language at The University of Manchester is pleased to invite applications for PhD studentships through its involvement in the North West Doctoral Training Centre funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).

We welcome applications from outstanding students for 2014-15 entry (start September 2014) for the following degree programmes:
- PhD in English Language
- PhD in Linguistics
- 1+3 (MA + PhD) programme in Linguistics / English Language

Eligible projects will be in areas of linguistics which can be construed as Social Research, including, but not restricted to, subfields of sociolinguistics, first language acquisition, multilingualism, pragmatics, and language documentation and description.

The highest-ranked applications will be eligible for competitive scholarships within the Centre. The award covers tuition fees and an annual maintenance stipend for UK residents and EU nationals who have lived in the UK for three years, and tuition fees only for EU residents.

The Department of Linguistics and English Language is an international centre for Linguistics and English Language, with 20 full-time members of staff and approximately 30 Postgraduate Research students. It is unique in the UK and beyond in the breadth of subject areas and theoretical approaches represented by its members, many of whom are internationally renowned scholars in their specialisms. In their research, members of the department combine the advancement of theoretical approaches with a strong concern for their empirical and methodological foundations. Areas of expertise include phonetics and phonology, morphology, syntax (lexical-functional grammar, role and reference grammar, construction grammar, and minimalism), (formal) semantics, pragmatics, historical linguistics, dialectology, language contact, variational sociolinguistics, first language acquisition, field linguistics and language documentation, typology, and quantitative corpus-based approaches. Note that we cannot normally supervise projects with a primary focus on second language teaching and learning. For more information about the research interests of individual members of staff and current postgraduate students, please visit http://www.alc.manchester.ac.uk/subjects/lel/. 

PhD students in Linguistics and English Language are part of the diverse and dynamic postgraduate community in the new Graduate School of the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures (http://www.alc.manchester.ac.uk/graduateschool/). Students in the NWDTC will enjoy access to outstanding library and IT resources and training provision within a collegial environment.

The deadline for submitting ESRC funding applications is 5 pm on Monday 3 February 2014. Please visit the School of Arts, Languages, and Cultures funding page (http://www.alc.manchester.ac.uk/fees/postgraduate-research-funding/) for the application form and guidance.

You are advised to submit your online application for a place on your chosen PhD programme by Friday 17 January 2014. This will ensure that you are in receipt of an offer of a place on your chosen PhD programme in advance of the ESRC deadline.
Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application by 28 March 2014.
