Job Vacancies at ILLC

  • (New) PhD candidate in Semantics, Pragmatics and Cognition

    The Institute for Logic, Language & Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam is looking for a highly motivated, creative and talented PhD candidate 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 PhD position is part of the larger Dutch NWO Gravitation consortium 'Language in Interaction'. This research consortium brings together researchers from nine different research institutions in the Netherlands, with complementary expertise in a highly interdisciplinary area of research. This project will involve collaborative work to be carried out at the Institute of Logic, Language, and Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam (Prof. Van Rooij) and the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour at Radboud University (Prof. H. Schriefers). The position will be embedded in the ILLC. Both involved institutes offer an international research.

    Application deadline: 1 February 2015. For more information, see
