Holland Institute of Generative Linguistics

The Holland Institute of Generative Linguistics (HIL) is a
research institute of Leiden University, the Universiteit van
Amsterdam and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Research within
the institute focuses on generative linguistics.

HIL is part of the Dutch national graduate school in linguistics,
LOT. HIL is a training institute for linguistic researchers. From
1 September, 1999, in this context there are positions for

 (reference number: 7/093)

Two students ("AIO"-positions) will be placed at Leiden
University and one ("AIO-position") at the Vrije Universiteit

The students will receive a salary. Contingent on good progress,
the position will be renewed for a maximum of four years. In
general, the position will only be given to students who have
received their undergraduate degree no longer than five years
ago. For every student a supervision and training programme will
be drawn up by the Faculty at which the appointment is made
according to the HIL regulations. The research project should
result in a promotion at the participating university.

Letters of application should be accompanied by a curriculum
vitae, two references, a copy of the doctoral diploma and
grade-list, and, if possible, other relevant written results of
the candidate (papers, articles, and the undergraduate thesis).

HIL graduate students are expected to carry out research projects
that fit in with the HIL research programme as these are carried
out by the research groups in the participating faculties. To
prepare for an exploratory interview that HIL will invite
short-list candidates for, applicants are requested to include a
short description of the research topic they are interested in
(max. 3 pages).

Students who have not yet obtained their undergraduate degree
should include a statement by their supervisor that they will
obtain this degree before 1 September, and a description of the
research topic of their undergraduate thesis (max. 3 pages).

research programme can be obtained from:
