The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Language Sciences PhD Fellowships 2019
Application deadline: 14 January 2019 (noon CET)
The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Language Sciences is offering three PhD Fellowships funded by the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Each position is funded for four years (2019-2023) with a preferred start-date of September 1, 2019.
The IMPRS is highly interested in applicants with broad theoretical and experimental knowledge, including advanced methods (e.g. EEG, fMRI, computational models, etc.) and statistics (e.g., mixed effects models, Bayesian). Applicants are invited to develop an interdisciplinary research proposal promoting new approaches in combining different lines of research.
The successful applicant will be employed on a 4-year contract issued by the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics. The monthly gross salary starts at approx. €2,400 plus an allowance (Gewinnungszulage) of approx. €500 per month. Salaries are in accordance with the German wage agreement for public servants (Tarifvertrag für den Öffentlichen Dienst, TVöD) set under a 50% contract at salary group level E13-1. Our MPI is also an equal opportunities employer.
How to Apply:
For your application, you are requested to select 2 potential supervisors for a particular research proposal (max. 3 supervisors). At least one supervisor must be a department head (i.e., Professor). You may submit 2 proposals at most.
Importantly, you are encouraged to develop an interdisciplinary research proposal that combines two or more lines of research (i.e., between departments). Just as importantly, your selection of supervisors should match the expertise required to bring that proposal to fruition.
