MA and PhD Opportunities

Our department offers an MA in English Linguistics with a focus on sociolinguistics, pragmatics, second language acquisition and psycholinguistics as well as a doctoral programme.

I welcome expressions of interest from prospective MA and doctoral students wishing to work on any of the following topics: Language variation and change (in particular discourse, phonetic and phonological variation); Acquisition of language variation; Language attitudes, perception and discrimination; Language, gender and sexuality; Cross-cultural communication, and similar topics.

In addition to continuous supervision and collaboration with me, doctoral students at Salzburg will also benefit from a series of classes and workshops designed to help them succeed in their doctoral work and finish their thesis in time and well-prepared for the international job market.

Doctoral students at Salzburg will also have the opportunity to become members of our linguistics research group Contact – Variation – Change.
