Applications are invited for the post of a postdoctoral researcher (full-time employment) in the Linguistics Department, working with Prof. Gerhard Jaeger. This vacancy is connected to the award of an ERC Advanced Grant, entitled 'Language Evolution: The Empirical Turn', for the period 2013-18. The project will be based at the University of Tuebingen. In total, the group will consist of three postdocs, two PhD students, and two student assistants. The principal activity of the postdoc will be to undertake research in one of the work packages described at the project homepage (http://www.sfs.uni-tuebingen.de/~gjaeger/evolaemp/). Previous experience in at least one of the following areas is required:

The salary is figured according to the union contract named TV-L, E13/E14, depending on professional experience.

The initial period of employment will be for 24 months, with the possibility of extension for the remaining running time of the project.

The position will be open starting April 1, 2013. Applications received by February 15, 2013 will receive full consideration, although interviews may start at any time and will continue until the position has been filled.

Disabled applicants will be preferred if they have the same qualifications as non-disabled applicants. The University of Tuebingen strives to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching, and therefore encourages qualified female scientists to apply.
