PhD sponsorship: Now accepting applications

4 February 2021

We have good news to share. It is not new, but it is something that many of you may not be aware of, so we are announcing it here. The MALS programme sponsors PhD research in Linguistics/Applied Linguistics/Language Studies. We are ready to accept applications from interested candidates who want to do a PhD. The PhD is four years and MALS would pay a studentship to the candidate for the entire four years. The studentship is the same amount given to all PhD students at HKBU, which is currently HKD$17,820 per month. During these four years, the PHD student would work part time as a teaching assistant for MALS. If you, or anyone you know, has a good research proposal that is suitable for one of our teaching staff to supervise, we would love to see it. Once you have a proposal ready, you can look at the research areas of our English Department staff (just click on a picture here: ). You can then contact the person you feel is most suitable for your topic and discuss your proposal with her or him. The deadlines are every year on 15 April and 1 December. You should allow yourself time to prepare your proposal in advance of those dates. We hope to hear from you soon!
