II- Mobility grants for Phd Students The aim of the Laboratoire d’excellence “Empirical Foundations of Linguistics: data, methods, models” (Labex EFL) is to promote innovative and interdisciplinary research within Linguistics and related fields. Specific interest is given to empirical foundations (corpus analysis and experimental methods) of linguistic research. For the 2nd time, the Labex EFL offers mobility grants for a period of 3 months each (one university semester, Spring or Fall semester) to PhD students in linguistics and related fields.

The Labex EFL is a nine year project, funded by the French Government (ANR-10-LABX-0083). It gathers 12 research teams (Alpage, CRLAO, HTL, Lacito, Lattice, LIPN, Llacan, LLF, LPP-P3, LPP-P5, MII, Sedyl) from 5 members of Sorbonne Paris Cité University (Université Sorbonne Nouvelle, Université Paris Diderot, Université Paris Descartes, Université Paris 13 et Institut National des Langues et Civilisations Orientales), in a partnership with the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), the French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation (INRIA) and the French Research and Development Institute (IRD).

Up to 5 applicants will be provided a mobility grant for the academic year 2015-2016. Candidates must be PhD students from a University outside of France, working in different fields of linguistics, including but not limited to empirical and experimental linguistics, typology, field linguistics, computational linguistics, psycholinguistics. The selected candidates will receive a stipend of 4000 Euros. During their fellowship they will be hosted by one of the research units of the Labex EFL (http://www.labex-efl.org/?q=en/about/partners) and will attend research seminars at one of the partner universities. A certificate of attendance and validation of these seminars will be provided at the end of the semester.

The application file should include the following: Cover letter CV An official document certifying their enrollment in a PhD program A statement (4-5 pages) explaining their PhD project and its relevance to the research topics of the Labex EFL A letter of recommendation from their PhD supervisor A letter of invitation from a local EFL project advisor cosigned by the director of the inviting laboratory
