The Department of Language and Linguistic Science at the University of York
offers an annual three-year studentship for Ph.D. students. The value is a fees
waiver at the home/EU rate for all three years of Ph.D. research. The recipient
of this award will be required to undertake six hours per week of teaching or
other duties during term time; the nature of the work will depend on the
successful candidate's qualifications.
In the latest Research Assessment Exercise results released in December 2008,
York Linguistics ranked second in the UK for linguistic research. Two-thirds of
our research was judged to be world-leading / internationally excellent; our
research environment was judged particularly excellent.
Moreover, the University of York was rated one of the UK's top 10 research
Applications are invited from prospective Ph.D. students in any of the major
research areas of the department: forensic speech science, phonetics and
phonology, psycholinguistics and language acquisition, semantics,
We welcome applicants with teaching experience; but the studentships are open to
all Ph.D. applicants - home, EU and overseas - whether or not you have taught
before. Success in winning the studentship may depend upon the area(s) in which
you are qualified to teach. You must have received a conditional offer from the
University of York before your application for a studentship can be considered.
For details on the application procedure to the University, see
submit the following three documents electronically to linguisticsyork.ac.uk.

3. Your research proposal, 500-1000 words. Please note the required length,
