Description:

The Hermann Paul School of Linguistics at the University of Basel
(Switzerland) and the Albert-Ludwigs- University of Freiburg (Germany) are
offering two scholarships for PhD candidates in Basel, starting between April
1st and June 1st 2017.

The graduate programme is internationally recognized and presents
inter-university collaboration. As a PhD candidate, you will be part of a
lively and active research community located in the upper Rhine region.
Funding rates for the scholarships at the University of Basel are in line with
regulations of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF).

Scholarships are granted for one year and may be subject to an extension of up
to two years with successful project development. The PhD can be done in the
following subjects: English Linguistics, French Linguistics, General
Linguistics, German Linguistics, Ibero-Romance Linguistics, Italian
Linguistics and Comparative and Historic Linguistics. The prerequisite for
your application is a good to excellent degree (MA or equivalent; minimum MA
mark: a 5 out of 6 in the Swiss system) in the field of language sciences. As
part of an international community your PhD project should constructively add
to the research environment. Scholarships are awarded based on the quality of
your outline: applications without an outline will not be considered. Please
inform yourself about the research areas at the HPSL beforehand and get in
touch with your preferred first supervisor as soon as possible (the list of
supervisors is available at http://www.hpsl-linguistics.org/faculty).

Please note that PhD scholarships at the University of Basel must be
supervised by a first supervisor affiliated with the respective university
which grants the scholarship.

Please submit your application electronically. It should include:
- a letter of motivation 
- an informative outline of your research interests and PhD project 
- your curriculum vitae 
- copies of educational certificates (please note: in Basel the requirement
for entering the PhD program is a ''good'' or ''excellent'' degree)
- a writing sample (seminar paper or master thesis) 
- one written reference by a professor, a junior professor or another member
of university staff with the right to supervise a PhD, and the name and
contact information of one other professor willing to comment on your
expertise and potential in linguistics. A hard copy of the reference needs to
be mailed to us by the referee (see address below)
- if available: confirmations of internships, language proficiency and
conference participation

The Closing date for applications is January 31st 2017. The selection process
will take place in February and acceptances and refusals will be sent out in
March. 

Note: for the corresponding languages and linguistic fields see the research
interests of the Basel/Freiburg supervisors.
