6. Potential supervisor selection and research proposal
Please select your (min. 2) preferred potential supervisors for a given proposal. You may submit up to 2 proposals. Note: this selection is not binding.
For an overview, please go to
http://www.mpi.nl/education/imprs-for-language-sciences

Clearly articulate how your proposal unites unrelated and/or under-researched domains to advance knowledge in these areas. Importantly, an interdisciplinary approach (e.g., theoretical, methodological, etc.) should be evident in your ideas. State your research question(s), hypotheses, methods, theories, anticipated scientific contributions, and other relevant supporting points. If invited for an interview, you may be asked to expand on any of these points for the selection committee. Whether or not a proposal results in a PhD project (either in part or in whole) will depend on its feasibility and fit with the respective research departments’ interests. Successful applicants will discuss the details with their potential supervisors to come to an agreement before beginning the project.

Key references should be included and count towards the word limit. Please format as follows: Schmidt, M., Smit, P. & Smith, I. (yyyy). Title. DOI link (if available; otherwise, use bitly.com, tinyurl.com, or goo.gl).
