The Department of Germanic Linguistics at the University of Marburg is
seeking to fill the position of a postdoctoral researcher (salary according to
EG 13 TV-H; i.e. approx. EUR 3110-3640 / month before taxes
commensurate with experience, amounting to approx. EUR 1844-2082 /
month after taxes and including health insurance) for the duration of three
years. Starting date: January 1st 2012 or soon thereafter.

The position is part of the research unit 'Exploring the building blocks of
language' ('Fundierung linguistischer Basiskategorien'; financed by the
German state of Hesse as part of the LOEWE programme), which aims to
identify empirically grounded concepts and categories for linguistic
theorising by combining empirical insights from neurolinguistics, language
acquisition, language variation and change as well as linguistic typology.
The postdoctoral researcher will work within the sub-project 'Boundary
signals for foot and word', a project aiming at the analysis of the ways and
means of signalling boundary signals for prosodic categories, especially for
the foot and word. The role of the prosodic boundaries for lexical
processing will be studied as well. Linguistic analyses and neurolinguistic
experiments (especially by means of event-related potentials) will be
performed. Co-operation with other projects in the same programme are
expected as well.

The successful candidate will hold a PhD in linguistics or a related field
(phonetics, psychology) and will have prior experience with phonological
analysis, especially prosody, corpus studies and/or neuroscientific
methodologies in language processing. Experience with EEG-based
measures is particularly important. He/she will have a good knowledge of
experimental design and statistics. The candidate should also have a good
command of English, good interpersonal skills and the ability to supervise
students and research assistants. Knowledge of German is not required
when taking up the position, but we do expect an interest in learning the
