Level: PhD 

Specialty Areas: Phonetics; Sociolinguistics 


The Linguistics department in the School of Languages, Linguistics, and Film
at Queen Mary University of London seeks to appoint a full-time PhD student
undertaking research in sociolinguistics to a Graduate Editorial Assistantship
from 01 January 2017. The successful candidate will be awarded the Language in
Society Studentship and will benefit from a maintenance award at the RCUK
London rate (£16,296 in 2016/17) and a fee waiver at the home/EU rate (£4,121
in 2016-17).

The appointee would deliver administrative support to the Editor-in-Chief of
the Cambridge University Press journal Language in Society. Over the three
years of the studentship, the appointee would carry out a range of
administrative tasks associated with managing the journal, including assisting
the editor with the different stages of production of issues of the journal,
from submission of articles, book reviews and book notes, to preparing files
for copy-editing and proof reading before publication. 

The tasks are expected to take up approximately 6 hours per week. The
successful candidate must be able to work independently and to demonstrate
excellent written English, including punctuation and organisation of
arguments, a high level of accuracy in their work, and the ability to handle a
complex, specialized website.

The assistantship will be awarded to an applicant undertaking research in any
area of sociolinguistics in which the department can offer supervision, though
preference will be given to proposals in the domain of articulatory
sociophonetics and, specifically, that integrate questions relevant to
ultrasound research. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in
sociolinguistics/sociophonetics and in quantitative/experimental research
methods. Candidates who have not already applied to do a PhD in Linguistics at
Queen Mary will need to submit a full research proposal and a brief statement
of purpose, together with the other documentation described here:
http://linguistics.sllf.qmul.ac.uk/postgraduate/phd-programmes. Further
information about research degrees in the School of Languages, Linguistics and
Film can be found on the Prospective Students page of the School website:

Completed applications must be submitted online at
http://www.qmul.ac.uk/postgraduate/research/subjects/linguistics/index.html by
November 01, 2016. Interviews will be held shortly after that date. Interested
candidates are strongly encouraged to contact Dr. Esther de Leeuw
(e.deleeuw at qmul.ac.uk), Director of the QMUL Phonetics Lab, and/or Dr. Erez
Levon (e.levon at qmul.ac.uk), Director of Postgraduate Studies for Linguistics,
by 01 October to discuss their research ideas and for assistance in preparing
a formal application. Please note that only UK/EU nationals are eligible for
this award.
