Jobs: Semantics: PostDoc / PhD Position, University of Goettingen

Editor for this issue: Bethany Townsend <bethanylinguistlist.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 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 University of Goettingen invites applications for a post-doc position
and one PhD position in linguistics. This occurs as part of the
Exzellenzinitiative which singles out nine German universities for
privileged funding, and which in Goettingen has initiated a strong focus in
linguistics. The positions are affiliated with the Department of General
Linguistics and the Department of English Linguistics which cooperate
closely in research and teaching. You will be integrated and take
responsibility in all scholarly activities in the rising linguistic
research community. Goettingen offers a stimulating research environment
with special infrastructure and funding possibilities for research in the
humanities. Writing skills in English at a professional level are expected.

Both positions form part of the research unit "Noun phrases in intensional
positions." The research group aims to improve our understanding of the
semantics of intensional argument positions and related phenomena by
investigating them under a cross-linguistic perspective and bringing in
insights from semantics, pragmatics and philosophy.

The ideal candidates for both positions possess a strong background in
formal semantics and have demonstrated experience in at least one of the
following areas: pragmatics, philosophy, comparative semantics, linguistic
typology, classifier languages.

There are no teaching obligations, but contribution to the teaching program
in linguistics is strongly encouraged.

The post doctoral position requires a PhD thesis in linguistics or a
related area. It is offered for 3 years with an extension for 1 or 3 more
years depending on evaluation of the research group.

The PhD position requires an MA in linguistics or a comparable degree. The
applicant should receive a PhD. The position is offered for 2 years with a
possible extension of further 2 years.

Post Doc Positions: Employment at the 13 TV-L level with a minimum gross of
appx. 2800 Euro monthly for a full-time appointment (39,5 h/week).
PhD: Employment at the 13 TV-L (50%) level with a minimum gross of 1400
Euro monthly. Eventual salary depends on age and family status.
