The research groups ‘Center for Linguistics’ (CLIN) of the Faculty of Arts and Philosophy at Vrije Universiteit Brussel and ‘Quantitative Lexicology and Variational Linguistics’ (QLVL) of the Faculty of Arts at KU Leuven, Belgium, invite applications for a four year junior researcher-position on a new research project funded by the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO). The title of the project is: ‘Acquiring social meaning of language variation: an experimental exploration.’
Scientific mission of LOT
The aim of LOT is to create a scientific community in which this research can be optimally pursued, and to educate the next generation of researchers with an open mind toward new disciplinary and interdisciplinary developments, theoretical and methodological alternatives, and possible applications.
LOT stimulates new initiatives and developments in research, and provides a national forum to further communication between the participating institutes with a view to short- and long-term collaboration.
LOT School Series
LOT was officially established in June 1994 by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. The LOT school series soon acquired an international reputation as a result of inviting well-known linguists to teach at the schools.
The research by the LOT institutes covers all major areas of linguistics, and exploits a wide range of methodological tools and theoretical frameworks.
