Jobs: German & Text Analysis: Junior Prof, University of Goettingen

Editor for this issue: Luiza Newlin Lukowicz <luizalinguistlist.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 newly founded Courant Research Centre "The Multi-layered Text Protocol:
Micro and Macro Level Structures in Written Discourse" at the University of
Göttingen invites applications for three Tenure-Track Professorships to
build up Independent Research Groups.

The positions are available immediately, will be at the W1 salary scale
(Junior Professorship), have a reduced teaching responsibility (2 hrs/wk),
six years of funding to build up an Independent Research Group and a
tenure-track option (W2/W3) depending on successful review after 3 and 6 years.

We are looking for young scientists with outstanding scientific
qualifications as documented by research activities and publications who
have earned a qualified doctoral degree within the last six years or longer
if due to familial circumstances.

The main goal of the three cooperating research groups in the envisaged
Courant Research Centre is to develop and to validate a multi-layered
representation platform for joint interdisciplinary text analysis. Insights
of theoretical linguistics and literary studies will be surveyed and tested
for cross-level interpretive effects. The centre further aims at a
systematic empirical exploration of the hypothesized interacting
text-structural layers documented in the Text Protocol by exploiting
well-established experimental methods of cognitive psychology. The centre
is seeking candidates with an internationally acknowledged track record,
who will complement and strengthen the existing research program.

For the first theory-oriented research group the centre is preferably
seeking candidates with expertise in one or several of the following areas
of linguistics: formal grammar (particularly syntax and semantics); formal
pragmatics; discourse theory. A strong interest in the analysis of literary
text is required.

For the second theory-oriented research group the centre is preferably
seeking candidates with expertise in one or several of the following areas
of literary studies: narratology; methods of textual analysis; literary
semantics; cognitive poetics; cognitive stylistics; empirical studies of
literature. A strong interest in linguistics is required.

For the third empirically focused research group the centre is preferably
seeking candidates with expertise in one or several of the following areas
of cognitive psychology: psychology of human language (particularly text
comprehension; reading comprehension; spoken language and conversation;
models of reading and comprehension); psycholinguistics; semantic memory. A
good standing in experimental methods is required (particularly computer
based experiments; eye tracking). Experience with physiological methods
(EEG, fMRI) in event related designs would be advantageous.

The University of Göttingen places particular emphasis on fostering career
opportunities for female scientists and scholars and therefore strongly
encourages qualified women to apply. We explicitly welcome applications
from abroad. Disabled persons with equivalent aptitude for the position
will be favoured.
Applications must be submitted by 3rd of May 2009, via our online
application platform (URL provided below).

Please follow this link for a complete version of the advertisement and
further information on the required documents you must upload. The
selection procedure will include a symposium to be held in June 2009. For
further information on the Courant Research Centre, please visit
www.uni-goettingen.de/crc or contact Prof. Dr. Anke Holler (see contact
information below).

Please note: It was brought to our attention that the official online application
site can cause problems in certain cases. In case you face such problems,
we strongly encourage interested applicants to send your documents to
{aholler, reckard}@gwdg.de, as an alternative to, or in addition to the online
application system. We assure that all applications that reach us in due time
will receive fullest consideration.
