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.

University or Organization: Albert-Ludwigs-Universitaet Freiburg
Department: Research training group "frequency effects"
Job Location: Freiburg, Germany
Web Address: http://frequenz.uni-freiburg.de
Job Rank: 8 PhD Scholarships

Specialty Areas: General Linguistics; Frequency Effects in Language


The University of Freiburg, one of Germany's Universities of Excellence,
invites applications for 8 fully-funded Ph.D. scholarships on the topic of
frequency effects in language, beginning no earlier than October 1, 2012, and
no later than March 1, 2013. Successful applicants will be members of the
Research Training Group on "Frequency effects in language"
(Graduiertenkolleg GRK 1624/1) funded by the German Research
Foundation (DFG).

Frequency is assumed to be a possible determinant in usage-based models
of language change, language acquisition and language processing. In the
Ph.D. projects this determinant will be investigated with a view both to its
explanatory potential and its limitations. The envisaged research combines
quantitative approaches to language with cognitivist-psycholinguistic
approaches and is empirically based on experimental and corpus data for
standard and non-standard varieties of different languages.

We offer a high-profile research environment, an interdisciplinary teaching
programme, a full grant of 13,200 EUR per annum for a period of up to 3
years, and additional grants covering travel and research expenses.

Application Deadline: 15-Apr-2012
