ESRC Wales Doctoral Training Partnership PhD Studentship

Swansea University - Linguistics

The Centre for Language and Communication Research (CLCR) at Cardiff University and the Language Research Centre (LRC) at Swansea University, supported by the ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership for Wales (Wales DTP), invite applications for a PhD in Linguistics, with the possibility of being awarded a fully-funded ESRC DTP studentship, available to start in October 2017. The award is available on either a 1+3 or +3 basis.

The partnership between CLCR and LRC provides a focussed body of expertise in the core sub-areas of linguistics listed below, from which we expect to make a doctoral studentship award:

  • Socio-cultural approaches to language and communication
  • Health Communication
  • Forensic Linguistics
  • Second language acquisition
  • Lexis
  • Media discourse
  • Language as professional practice
  • Institutional discourse
  • Phonetics and Phonology
  • Systemic Functional Linguistics
  • Corpus Linguistics
  • Sociolinguistics

The successful PhD researcher will become part of a dynamic hub for the development of new theory at the interface of language form, function, use and processing. They will benefit from a long history of research and postgraduate teaching collaboration between CLCR and LRC, including access to all research seminars and social events (e.g. summer PGR conference).

We welcome applications for both full or part-time study, and the studentship is available as either ‘1+3’ (i.e. one full time year undertaking a research training Master's, followed by three years of full-time doctoral study, or the part-time equivalent), or ‘+3’ (i.e. three years of full-time doctoral study or its part-time equivalent), depending on the needs of the applicant.

Eligibility

Applications are invited from exceptional candidates with a first class or strong upper second class honours degree, or Master’s degree in a relevant subject area.
