Description:
The Chair of English Linguistics at the Leuphana University Lueneburg, Germany (Prof. Anne Barron) invites applications for two PhD scholarships in Linguistics. The scholarships are each worth Euro 1,300 monthly (plus child benefit, If appropriate).

The scholarships will commence in mid-October 2011 or as soon as possible Thereafter. They are awarded for one year initially. However, subject to the Progress of the PhD, each can be renewed for a further two years. It should be Noted that students can apply for a scholarship without registering for a PhD at The Leuphana university. However, successful students can only take up the Scholarship once they are registered PhD students at the Leuphana university.

The successful candidates are to pursue a PhD in English linguistics at the Leuphana University Lueneburg. One scholarship will be awarded to a research Topic in the area of interlanguage pragmatics (focusing on, e.g., acquisition, Teaching, assessment, individual differences, …). The other scholarship will be Awarded to a topic within variational pragmatics (intercultural pragmatics).

This latter scholarship will focus on intra-lingual pragmatic variation (e.g. Pragmatic variation across the Englishes, pragmatic variation according to age, Social class, …). A specialization in Irish English is a decided advantage for The second research studentship.

Additional duties include tutorials and student support for up to ten hours per Week. A good command of the English language is a pre-requisite; a working Knowledge of German is beneficial but not a requirement.
