Vacancy PhD position @ Utrecht University

Job Description

Are you self-motivated, curious and interested in research? Are you excited to work on a project that is of theoretical and societal significance? Are you interested in researching the linguistic factors that make textual information credible? Consider joining the Language and Communication research group as a PhD student to conduct cutting-edge research at the intersection of text comprehension, language technology and persuasion research.

We are seeking to hire a highly motivated, driven, and talented PhD student to carry out this PhD project in a period of four years. The PhD project is funded by a grant awarded to dr. Marloes van Moort, dr. Karin Fikkers, Prof.dr. Hans Hoeken and Prof.dr. Antal van den Bosch, and will be carried out at the Institute for Language Sciences (ILS), Utrecht University. You will work in an interdisciplinary team with researchers from the fields of cognitive psychology, text comprehension, language technology and persuasion research.

As a PhD candidate (“aio”) you can devote 10% of your four-year appointment to non-research related tasks, such as teaching. Note that, given the limited amount of teaching, it is not possible to obtain a University Teaching Qualification (‘BKO’) during your PhD.

Deadline: June 21, 2023.
