The Integrated Research Training Group of the Collaborative Research Centre SFB 732 "Incremental Specification in Context" at the University of Stuttgart invites applications for five short-term one-year grants for PhD students in the specialty areas of computational linguistics and/or general linguistics, starting from March 2015 or soon thereafter. The grants are intended to support PhD students in collaborating with researchers and other PhD students of the SFB, if they are interested in theoretical and/or computational approaches to analyses of context specification.
Duties and Responsibilities:
Grant holders are expected to affiliate with a research project in the Collaborative Research Centre. Information concerning the projects within the SFB can be found here: http://www.uni-stuttgart.de/linguistik/sfb732/index.php?article_id=7
If accepted, the grant holders will participate in the Integrated Research Training Group, which offers academic courses on specialized topics in linguistics and computational linguistics, classes on soft skills and expert courses on technical competences, research visits of internationally known researchers from the field, and regular PhD meetings. In addition, the Collaborative Research Centre supports participation in summer schools and conferences.
More information on the aims and objectives of the Integrated Research Training Group can be found here: http://www.uni-stuttgart.de/linguistik/sfb732/index.php?article_id=131
Grant holders will receive a (tax-free) grant of 1000 EUR per month plus 103 EUR per month for additional costs.
The scholarships aim at knowledge exchange and expansion particularly for students who have already started their PhD and wish to gain more experience outside their home university. Candidates are expected to hold a Master's degree (or equivalent) in Linguistics/Computational Linguistics and have a research focus on analyses of linguistic specification in context, which is ideally manifested in earlier research activities, either in the form of presentations/publications or as a part of a carefully worked-out plan for a dissertation project.
How to Apply:
Applicants from within and outside Germany are invited to apply. Interested candidates should send their electronic applications, including:
- their Master's degree or equivalent (scan);
- a curriculum vitiate (CV) (including two contact data for references);
- a short sketch of the planned dissertation project (1-2 pages);
- and an accompanying letter outlining their motivation for applying at the Collaborative Research Centre; the motivation should indicate the project the candidate wishes to be affiliated with.
The applicants are asked to contact the Principal Investigator of the respective project before they send in their application, in order to check the suitability of the proposed dissertation project. Candidates with an additional interest in the field of digital humanities are asked to note this in the application.
The contact for the application is Dr. Jagoda Bruni.
Estimated beginning of the scholarship period:
March 2015 or soon thereafter.
Application Deadline: 10-Dec-2014
