125 Anniversary PhD Studentships

The School of Linguistics at Bangor University seeks applications from well-qualified students to undertake a fully-funded PhD by research (three such studentships are available in the College of Arts and Humanities Studentship competition).  Applicants must apply no later than March 23rd 2012 to be considered.  The studentships provide full-funding (including tuition waiver and stipend) for three years. Each holder of a PhD studentship receives an annual maintenance grant of £13,000, and also receives an annual research allowance of up to £1,500 (for approved expenditure). Successful studentship applicants will be expected to supply around 100 hours per year of teaching/research assistance focused on a supervisor / research team as part of their development as an academic of the future.  The School of Linguistics seeks specific research proposals in some aspect of either Cognitive Linguistics, or Bilingualism, the two research priorities of the department.

Prospective applicants may contact the Linguistics Director of Postgraduate Studies, Dr. Eirini Sanoudaki (e.sanoudaki@bangor.ac.uk) for informal enquiries.
