We are pleased to announce that a full funding is available for a three-year PhD in Linguistics at Lancaster University, beginning in October 2018 on the topic of “Phraseological competence in spoken L1 and L2 English: Using corpus methods to inform language testing”.
The PhD studentship is funded by the ESRC North West Social Science Doctoral Training Centre (NWSSDTP) and will be undertaken in collaboration between Lancaster University (the Department of Linguistics and English Language) and Trinity College London. The studentship covers full-time academic fees and provides a yearly stipend (£14,553). It also includes access to a Research Training Support Grant (RTSG) for reimbursement of research related expenses including – but not limited to – conference attendance and training courses. The PhD studentship offers an excellent opportunity to work with a team of experts at a world-leading Linguistics department.
The application deadline is 9th April 2018.
