Doctoral and Post-Doctoral posts in Nijmegen

1 POST-DOCTORAL AND 2 DOCTORAL (PhD) POSITIONS IN SEMANTICS AND PRAGMATICS

Department of Philosophy, University of Nijmegen

Closing date: October 5, 2009

These positions are part of a four-year research programme entitled "Quantity matters", which is funded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). The project leader is Bart Geurts. The principal aim of the programme is to develop a comprehensive theory of quantity implicatures. Although the project's central objective is theoretical in nature, it has a significant empirical component as well, involving a range of experimental studies on quantity implicatures that will provide us with a broader and more solid database than is currently available.
