We are pleased to announce the availability of University of Canterbury
Doctoral Scholarships, which are tenable in the University of Canterbury
Department of Linguistics in Christchurch, New Zealand. Staff in Linguistics
at UC have expertise in phonetics & phonology, syntax, sociophonetics &
language variation and change, as well as other areas (see below). The
Linguistics Department is part of the New Zealand Institute of Language, Brain
and Behaviour (NZILBB), and as such, presents substantial opportunities for
multi-disciplinary research (see http://www.nzilbb.canterbury.ac.nz). NZILBB
also houses a variety of state-of-the-art equipment, including Ultrasound,
Electromagnetic Articulography, EEG, and 3D motion tracking. We also have
several large corpora, including the ONZE corpus (Origins of New Zealand
English), the QuakeBox corpus, and the OLIVE corpus (Origins of Liverpool
English). Any of these resources would be available to the successful
candidate(s) for PhD research.

UC Scholarships provide NZ$21,000/year for three years, plus cover the
university fees. There are no restrictions on regional origin of the
applicants. The application deadline is October 15th (NZ time). 

The PhD at the University of Canterbury is by thesis only, and interested
candidates should, in the first instance, make contact with a potential
supervisor in the Linguistics Department to discuss their research ideas. The
currently available supervisors in the Linguistics Department are: Lynn Clark,
Donald Derrick, Jen Hay, Beth Hume, Heidi Quinn and Kevin Watson.
