The Midlands Graduate School is an accredited Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP). One of 14 such partnerships in the UK, the Midlands Graduate School is a collaboration between the University of Warwick, Aston University, University of Birmingham, University of Leicester, Loughborough University and the University of Nottingham.

The University of Birmingham encourages applications for ESRC studentships from applicants who are keen to pursue high-level doctoral studies in the field of Applied Linguistics.

The University of Birmingham is part of the ESRC Midlands Graduate School (MGS) Doctoral Training Partnership with Aston University, the University of Leicester, the University of Loughborough, the University of Nottingham and the University of Warwick. Opportunities at the University of Birmingham include the approved pathway of Applied Linguistics.

We encourage applications that relate to the major research strengths of either:

1) The Department of English Language and Linguistics which specialises in the areas of corpus linguistics, stylistics, discourse analysis, sociolinguistics and cognitive linguistics.

or

2) The Department of Education and Social Justice which specialises in research into bilingualism/multilingualism, linguistic ethnography, multilingual literacy, sociolinguistics and contemporary discourses about linguistic and cultural diversity.

Candidates can apply for a range of awards (covering doctoral study only or both masters and doctoral study). All studentships can be offered on a full or part time basis. Please note that the scheme is very competitive and applicants need to have both an excellent academic record and a strong and thoroughly developed proposal.

The closing date for applications is Tuesday 24 January 2017. Interested students are encouraged to make contact with potential supervisors as soon as possible in order to start discussing their research projects.
