Who can apply and which projects and services are covered?
LiZZ offers a limited number of vouchers to early career researchers (Master, PhD students, PostDocs) from the University of Zurich who wish to profit from LiRI services to successfully conduct their research project. You can find the full list of LiRI services on the LiRI website: https://www.liri.uzh.ch/en/services.html.
The vouchers are intended for projects in the field of linguistics and for projects with language-related research without funding from any other source, e.g. URPP, NCCR, SNSF, EU for LiRI services.
What do we need from you?
If you are interested in gaining free access to the LiRI services, please fill in the online form below and submit the consent of your supervisor.
Online Form: We would like to get an idea of your project which is why we ask you to hand in text snippets that include details on (1) the project description summarizing the goal of the project, (2) the experimental design and (3) the estimated costs. Please make sure that the project description explicitly states why the requested service is needed.
For the calculation of costs please consider LiRI’s regulation and fees: For expert time like statistical consulting or consulting in data processing or lab assistance you calculate with working hours (one hour currently 57 CHF).
Costs for the use of lab space and lab equipment are published in the LiRI Wiki. Please also consider the regulations for lab use: https://liri.linguistik.uzh.ch/wiki/admin/regulation/reglationsoverview
Consent of your supervisor: The consent should be an informal letter or email in which the project is summarized and in which your supervisor confirms that the LiRI services cannot be covered by funding from any other source.
What happens once the form is submitted?
Once you have submitted the form, your request will be forwarded to the LiZZ Coordinator and Members of the LiZZ Executive Board. Requests exceeding costs of 500 CHF will be discussed with the LiZZ Executive Board who is in charge of the approval. The next meeting for the Executive Board is scheduled for October 27, 2021. Requests handed in until October 13th will be considered for the next board meeting (next submission date is November 17th, further dates will be published here).
What else is there to know?
Please note that the vouchers are limited. Requests will be considered on a first-come-first-serve basis. The vouchers are only applicable for the service(s) requested and for the specific purpose(s) as described in this form. Please note as well, that the actual availability of the requested services cannot be guaranteed by the voucher. After a positive feedback on your request you will have to get in touch with the point of contact for each of the specific services. You will receive further details in case your voucher request has been approved.
Any further questions? Please contact the LiZZ Coordinator Sarah Krause.
