Jobs: Semantics: Guest Researcher, University of Potsdam

Editor for this issue: Vanessa Manion <vanessalinguistlist.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 SFB 632 on Information Structure of the University of Potsdam and Humboldt
University in Berlin is seeking to fill a position of a Guest Researcher for
Semantics for a period of one year (May 2006-April 2007) in Potsdam. Salary will
be equivalent to a German W2 professorship. Applicants must have a PhD and are
expected to have a record of excellent publications.

Knowledge in formal semantics is required. Willingness to participate to a joint
large project with the theme 'information structure' is a prerequisite. In this
framework, it is expected that candidates bring competence in the field of
discourse and text.

The position involves no teaching requirement (though an advanced class will be
welcome). The guest researcher is expected to cooperate with the members of the
staff in different research projects, and to lead their own research. At least
one prominent publication is expected to be the outcome of the one-year position.
