Seven PhD student positions in "Language in Interaction", THE NETHERLANDS

Seven PhD Positions in the Dutch Research Consortium 'Language in 

Closing date: 30 September 2014
For more information:

We are looking for highly motivated PhD candidates to enrich a unique 
consortium of researchers that aims to unravel the neurocognitive 
mechanisms of language at multiple levels. The goal is to understand both 
the universality and the variability of the human language faculty from 
genes to behaviour.

The Netherlands has an outstanding track record in the language sciences. 
This research consortium sponsored by a large grant from the Netherlands 
Organization for Scientific research (NWO) brings together many of the 
excellent research groups in the Netherlands with a research programme on 
the foundations of language. The research team consists of 43 Principal 
Investigators. In addition to the excellence in the domain of language and 
related relevant fields of cognition, our consortium provides 
state-of-the-art research facilities and a research team with ample 
experience in the complex research methods that will be invoked to address 
the scientific questions at the highest level of methodological 
sophistication. These include methods from genetics, neuroimaging, 
computational modelling, and patient-related research. This consortium 
realizes both quality and critical mass for studying human language at a 
scale not easily found anywhere else.

Currently, the consortium advertises seven PhD positions for a period of 4 
years. Depending on the PhD position applied for, candidates will be 
appointed at one of the home institutions of the consortium. These 
positions provide the opportunity for conducting world-class research as a 
member of an interdisciplinary team.
