Jobs: Syntax: Grad Student Fellowship, JWG Universität

Editor for this issue: Ann Sawyer <sawyerlinguistlist.org>


The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards. Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Description:

The graduate program 'Sentence Types: Variation and Interpretation'
(Graduiertenkolleg 'Satzarten: Variation und Interpretation') at the
University of Frankfurt/Main (Germany) invites applications for one PhD
position in syntax, in the research program 'The function of the left
periphery'.

The graduate program was founded in April 2001 and receives its funding
from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), the German national
research foundation. The program combines several areas of linguistics and
establishes interdisciplinary relations with the neighboring disciplines
cognitive psychology and neuroscience. There are currently fourteen PhD
students working on topics in syntax, typology, semantics and pragmatics.
Information about the projects of the program can be found on the internet
under:

http://www.uni-frankfurt.de/fb10/grad_koll

The PhD student will carry out a research project in the graduate program's
subfield 'A1: The function of the left periphery for the determination of
sentence types' ('Die Funktion der linken Satzperipherie für die
Determination von Satzarten'), with the goal of completing a PhD thesis
within three years. Profound knowledge of recent theoretical developments
in generative syntax is desirable.

The stipend is available at the earliest from November 2005 for a period of
three years, and cannot be extended. Willingness to learn German is expected.

Applicants should send a curriculum vitae and a two- to three-page research
proposal by 1 October 2005 to Prof. Dr. Günther Grewendorf at the address below.
