We are seeking excellent linguists to join our interdisciplinary Research Group constituted by the following PIs: Martin Becker, Christiane Bongartz, Martine Grice, Klaus von Heusinger, Nikolaus P.

Candidates are expected to have a clear interest in interdisciplinary work, a completed PhD and an excellent research record in one or more of following four areas of specialization: A: Crosslinguistic analysis of argument structure; B: Phonology and the interface to semantics/pragmatics with a specialization in prosody; C: Syntax and discourse structure in second language acquisition; D: Modeling dynamic structure and interface conditions.

The research group provides a professional infrastructure and an appropriate workplace for conducting research, and encourages developing and implementing individual research projects associated with Prominence in Language. Fellows have the opportunity to benefit from a variety of career development measures.

The University of Cologne is committed to promoting equal employment opportunities and, in light of this, applications from disabled candidates are particularly welcome. Disabled candidates will be given priority in cases in which applicants possess similar qualifications. Additionally, applications from female candidates will also be favored in cases of comparable qualifications, capabilities and professional accomplishments unless an applicant’s personal qualities recommend them in particular for the position.
