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 at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

The group in Empirical Methods in Syntax at the Linguistics Department of the
University of Potsdam, Germany, is seeking one doctoral-student researcher to
work on an experimentally-centered project involving the processing of
information structure in Hindi.

The starting date is approximately August 2007; earlier start dates are also

Prerequisites are a good background in linguistic theory (particularly
syntactic theory in any flavor, and semantics), and native or near-native
knowledge of Hindi. In addition, practical experience in experimental research,
such as reaction time studies and eyetracking, is highly desirable; failing such
an experimental background, a desire to acquire these skills is necessary.
Knowledge of German is not required.

The successful candidate will work in project C6 'Empirical and Corpus
Investigations of Information Structure in Hindi' within the
Sonderforschungsbereich 632 (Collaborative Research Centre 'Information
Structure', http://www.sfb632.uni-potsdam.de/), funded by German Research
Foundation (www.dfg.de). For further information on the SFB, visit the web
address above.

The position is temporary, with a contract extending over three years, with the
possibility of an additional year depending on various factors.

The salary and social benefits are determined by the German pay scale for state
employees (Entgeltgruppe: 13 TV-Länder, Tarifgebiet Ost; formerly BAT-O IIa)
and amounts to approximately EUR 1500 per month, working half-time. The exact
salary amount varies depending on the highest academic degree attained by the
applicant, marital status, age, and so on.

The candidate will be expected to enroll in the PhD program at the Institute for
Linguistics at the University of Potsdam.

The Empirical Methods group offers a very interactive academic environment, with
intensive student-faculty interaction and a relatively large group of highly
motivated researchers engaged in experimental research and cognitive modeling.
There are strong research ties with other areas within Linguistics, such as
Clinical Linguistics, Computational Linguistics, Phonology, and Syntax, and
with the Department of Psychology at the University of Potsdam. In addition,
close research collaborations are maintained with the Department of Psychology,
University of Michigan, and Computational Linguistics, Michigan State
University, in the USA.

The University of Potsdam is located in the exquisite city of Potsdam, which is
approximately 30 km from, and easily reachable by car and express train, the
vibrant capital of Germany, Berlin.

The University of Potsdam is an equal opportunity employer.

Interested candidates are invited to send, via email, their application
materials (a CV, [links to] sample publications, a one-page statement of
research interests and two or three references). Applications received by
end-July, 2007 will receive fullest consideration; however, the position will
remain open until filled.

Inquiries should be sent to the email given below.

Application Deadline: 31-Jul-2007 (Open until filled)
