Description:

Applied Linguistics PhD opportunities at the University of Birmingham
ESRC Midlands Graduate School DTP Open Competition 

The Department of English Language and Applied Linguistics at the University
of Birmingham encourages applications for ESRC studentships from applicants
who are keen to pursue high-level doctoral studies in the field of Applied
Linguistics.

The University of Birmingham is part of the ESRC Midlands Graduate School
Doctoral Training Partnership with Aston University, the University of
Leicester, the University of Loughborough, the University of Nottingham and
the University of Warwick. Opportunities at the University of Birmingham
include the approved pathway of Applied Linguistics. 

We encourage applications that relate to the major research strengths of the
Department: corpus linguistics, stylistics, discourse analysis, cognitive
linguistics and psycholinguistics. We particularly welcome applications on the
following topics:

- The acquisition and processing of idioms and figurative language
- Lexical and phraseological aspects of language impairment
- Topics that explore theoretical and methodological links between corpus
linguistics and psycholinguistics
- The application of cognitive linguistics and psycholinguistics to
advertising and marketing research
- The application of cognitive and computational linguistics to the analysis
of online review data (e.g. Yelp, IMDb)
- The application of genre analysis (and rhetoric) to business and
organisational discourse
- The development of corpus statistic methods for research into changing
discourses
- Experimental approaches to critical discourse analysis
- The application of Construction Grammar to language teaching
- Corpus-based language pedagogy
- Acquisition (L1 and L2) and the processing of argument structure

Candidates can apply for a range of awards (covering doctoral study only or
both masters and doctoral study). All studentships can be offered on a full or
part time basis. Please note that the scheme is very competitive and so
applicants need to have an excellent academic record.

The closing date for applications is Tuesday 24 January 2017. 

Interested students are encouraged to make contact with potential supervisors
as soon as possible in order to start discussing their research projects.
