The University of Konstanz is one of the nine Universities of Excellence in
the Federal Republic of Germany.

The Zukunftskolleg/Department of Linguistics invites applications for a Ph.D.
Position in Semitic Linguistics.

The position is available for 36 months starting March 2012 or as soon as
possible thereafter. The appointment is at 65% of Salary Scale 13 TV-L.

The research position is available within the project 'Neo-Aramaic
Morphosyntax in its Areal-linguistic Context' (Neuaramäische Morphosyntax
im areallinguistischen Kontext), funded by the German Research Foundation
(DFG). The aim of the project is to document and investigate the
morphosyntax of a selection of North-eastern Neo-Aramaic (NENA) dialects,
focusing on their role in a linguistic area. The PhD student will investigate one
dialect in depth, with the opportunity to complete a PhD dissertation. The
research project is based at the Department of Linguistics and the
Zukunftskolleg of the University of Konstanz.

The successful candidate will have a background in both Linguistics and
Semitic Languages (preferably including a living one) and an MA in either one
of these subjects. Previous experience in fieldwork is not a prerequisite, as
training will be provided. A good command of English is required. A
knowledge of German would also be advantageous (much of the academic
literature on Neo-Aramaic is in this language).

Candidates are requested to apply with the following documents:
- letter of motivation describing research interests
- CV
- MA grades transcript
- one MA thesis or other sample of writing
- letter(s) of recommendation (sent directly by referee) or names and
addresses of people who may be contacted.

The University of Konstanz encourages disabled persons to apply. They will
be given preference if appropriately qualified (contact +49(0)7531/88-4895).

The University of Konstanz has been certified by the Hertie Foundation to be
a family-friendly institution. The University is committed to further the
compatibility of work and family life.

The University of Konstanz is an equal opportunity employer and tries to
increase the number of women in research and teaching.

E-mail applications using pdf documents are welcome.

Please send your applications or enquiries to Dr. Eleanor Coghill.

Applications including the reference number 2011 / 155 received by the 20th
November, 2011 will receive full consideration. Later applications may also be
considered, until the position has been filled.

Applications Deadline: 25-Mar-2012
