Philipps-Universitat Marburg, in anticipation of the creation of
junior professorships, seeks to fill immediately the position of Head
of independent new generation research group Neurolinguistics.

The "new generation" research group Neurolinguistics is part of the
Institute of German Linguistics in cooperation with the laboratory for
General and Biological Psychology. The incumbent will be required to
engage in research in the fields of language acquisition and/or
syntax, primarily for the German language within the framework of
current research paradigms and methodologies of neuropsychology. These
research activities will complement existing activities in theoretical
and cognitive linguistics. 

The position will initially be that of an employee according to the
federal tariff system (BAT Ib), limited to a three year contract, with
the possibility of extending the contract for a further three years.
Once the legal regulatory framework for junior professorships is in
place, it is intended to change the employment status accordingly. 
Employment will be according to the regulations of the Hesse
University Law (Hessisches Hochschulgesetz) on the appointment of
professors. Candidates should have an excellent PhD, as well as
additional outstanding academic achievements and a particular aptitude
for research. At the time of employment, PhD completion must be no
longer than five years ago. 

The Philipps-Universitat is an equal opportunities employer and is
committed to increasing the proportion of women employees. Women are
therefore explicitly inited to apply for this job. According the
conditions required by 15b of the Federal Employee Tariff system
(BAT), a reduction of working hours is in principle possible.

Severely handicapped applicants with the same qualifications will be
treated preferentially. 

Applications should be addressed to the President of the
Philipps-Universitat Marburg, Biegenstrasse 10, 35032 Marburg,
Germany, with the usual supporting documents (please send publications
only if requested), quoting the reference code JP 09/1.
