Aston University, School of Languages and Social Sciences
Level: PhD
Duties: Project Work

Specialty Areas: Text/Corpus Linguistics
Application Deadline: 25-Aug-2008

Description: One PhD Studentship in Corpus Linguistics at Aston University, Birmingham, UK
Available: Immediately, until 31st July 2009

The School of Languages and Social Sciences at Aston University is offering a PhD Studentship in Corpus Linguistics. The School's vibrant research culture (Grade 5 rating in the last RAE) - and the rapidly expanding cohort of full-time
research students - provides a stimulating intellectual environment.

The previous holder of this Studentship has obtained an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) postgraduate doctoral award, hence we are able to offer the remaining funds to another candidate, who will be similarly supported in
applying for an externally funded postgraduate doctoral award to cover the rest of her/his PhD research beyond July 2009.

The successful candidate will be expected to start as soon as possible, to make maximum use of the available funds.

Candidates should have a Master's degree in a relevant subject area, and a condition of the award is that the candidate must be willing to work for up to 6 hours per week on the Aston Corpus Network (ACORN) project. ACORN currently contains over 200 million words of texts in English, French, German, Spanish, and pedagogically- oriented software and web interfaces for language teaching and learning and translation studies.

The Studentship consists of maintenance at AHRC rates (L12,600 for 2007-8; 2008-9 rate not yet announced) until July 31st 2009, and the waiving of University fees until July 31st 2009 at the EU rate (L3240 in 2007-8; 2008-9 fee of L3300 is awaiting approval). A non-EU student will have to pay the difference (c. L5-6000 per year) between EU fees and non-EU fees (L8,980 for 2007-8).

If you are not a native speaker of English, proof of English language competence will be necessary, usually in the form of a Test Of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test

The minimum test scores are as follows:

TOEFL: 610 (paper-based) or 253 (computer-based) or 101/102 (Internet-based)
IELTS: 7.0 (minimum 7.0 in writing, and 6.0 in speaking, listening and reading)

To apply, please download the application form, fill in the details, and email it to Ms Margarita Seresht immediately. You will also need to send a CV, a 2-3000 word research proposal, and the names of two academic referees. To speed up the process, please ask your referees to send their references immediately by email to Ms Seresht.

General information about applications is available in Sections 1 to 6
