Jobs: Semantics/Syntax; Cognitive Science: Post Doc, Heinrich-Heine-U

Editor for this issue: Christy Bird <christylinguistlist.org>

The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to engage in non-discriminatory hiring practices. We urge employers not to discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, 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 Department of Linguistics at the Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf
invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher whose main research
focus is on semantics of natural languages and its interface with syntax.
Candidates are encouraged to apply who are interested in crosslinguistic
variation in this domain and/or who draw on research insights from one or
more disciplines of cognitive science (philosophy, logic, computer science
or psycholinguistics).

Terms of Appointment:
The postdoc's primary responsibility will be to conduct research in the
semantics/syntax interface. The postdoc will also teach a limited amount of
classes (to prepare herself/himself for an academic job market) and will
also have small organizational responsibilities.

The position is to be filled as soon as possible and is to run until
September 30, 2014. Salary is on the German scale TV-L E13, %100.

Application and Selection Process:
Candidates must have completed a Ph.D. degree (or an equivalent degree) by
the time of application. Candidates with a background in linguistics and in
one or more disciplines of cognitive science (philosophy, logic, computer
science or psycholinguistics) will be considered, however a strength in
semantics and its interface with syntax is required. For full
consideration, send an application and arrange to have three letters of
reference sent by April 8, 2011. Later applications may be considered as
well, until the position has been filled.

All materials should be sent by email to the application email address
below. Letters of reference may be sent in scanned form.

The application materials should include a CV, a very brief statement of
research interests (up to 4 pages), a writing sample, as well as links to
papers (or electronic versions thereof). The subject line should include
'Postdoc Semantics/Syntax'.

Disabled applicants will be preferred if they have he same qualifications
as non-disabled applicants. The Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf
strives to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching, and
therefore qualified female scholars are encouraged to apply.
