2011MA Profile Alumnus/AntjeStoehr2015.jpgPhD Candidate, Radboud University Nijmegen<p>I received an MA in Linguistics and Cognitive Science in 2011.  I am currently a PhD candidate at Radboud University Nijmegen and the International Max Planck <span style="line-height:1.6;">Re</span><span style="line-height:1.6;">search School for Language Sciences in the Netherlands. Unlike in the US, an MA or MSc </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">degree is a prerequisite for starting a PhD in the Netherlands. This is also why PhD </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">students can start with their own research projects right from the beginning. It usually </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">takes four years to complete a PhD in the Netherlands.  During this period several </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">research projects must be carried out in order to fulfill all requirements for the </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">academic degree. For my dissertation, I investigate phonological development in </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">monolingual and bilingual children. This means that besides typical tasks of a doctoral </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">candidate like reading research articles, analyzing data and writing research articles, I </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">spend a lot of time traveling through the Netherlands and Germany to collect data from </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">preschool aged children. But there is of course even more to my job than research and </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">this is also where my undergraduate background in management comes in handy: I </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">write project plans; I manage a PhD budget, which involves acquiring external grant </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">money; I organize speaker series; I visit conferences to present my own research and in </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">2013 I even organized the International Child Phonology Conference together with my </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">r</span><span style="line-height:1.6;">esearch group. I also teach the undergraduate level course “Phonetics and Phonology” – </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">in my native language German –  in the Department of German Language and Culture. As </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">part of my PhD work, I recently spent one year as a Fulbright Fellow at the Center for </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">Language Science at the Pennsylvania State University to use and improve a skill that I </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">learned at UD: Studying language acquisition using event-related potentials. </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">In the final year of my PhD contract, I am preparing my research articles for publication. </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">My dissertation will consist of four research papers and will be defended in a very </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">traditional and formal Dutch ceremony. With an undergraduate degree from Germany, a </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">m</span><span style="line-height:1.6;">aster’s degree from the United States and (soon) a doctoral degree from the </span><span style="line-height:1.6;">Netherlands, I’m curious where it will take me next.</span></p> Profile Alumnus/Forms/DispForm.aspx?ID=9
