English Language and Applied Linguistics PhD/MA by Research. The University has been ranked as one of the world's top 50 institutions to study English Language and Literature in the 2018 QS World Rankings.
Background. The Department of Modern Languages and the Department of English and Linguistics at The University of Birmingham invites applications for one funded PhD studentship to commence in 30th September 2019.
While children begin to say their first words around 12 months of age, there is evidence that they start to understand the meaning of common words much earlier in development, suggesting that infants have already started to build a vocabulary.
Applications are invited for a funded 3 year full-time PhD project, to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the School of Languages and Applied Linguistics and will be supervised by Dr Glenn Hadikin, Dr Lee Oakley and Dr Marie McCullagh.
