Level: PhD

Specialty Areas: Phonetics; Phonology


The Department of Linguistics at the University of Potsdam invites applications for two PhD positions. Candidates should seek to address problems in Phonetics-Phonology using an integrative approach, by employing combinations of theoretical, computational/mathematical and experimental methods. Current areas of research include the relation between discrete phonological organization and correlates in the continuous phonetic signal, and models of phonetic and phonological phenomena using tools and concepts from non-linear dynamics. Funding derives from the European Research Council (Advanced Grant 249440) and the University of Potsdam. Training, research and advising is to be carried out at the University of Potsdam (Germany) and at Haskins Laboratories, New Haven CT (USA), via an agreement between the two institutions on training and supervision of young scientists.

Prior research experience is a must, but field of past degree or specialization - be it in Linguistics, Cognitive Science, Psychology, or Computer Science - is not in itself critical. Candidates with an unconventional training background are welcome. Responsibilities include: original research in phonology-phonetics; assisting with design and execution of experiments; data analysis; participating in writing of papers as part of the research team; participating in writing of grants towards the eventual goal of independent funding.

The deadline for the application is June 12, 2014; the recruitment process will continue until the positions are filled. International applicants are welcome. Applications should be submitted in the form of a CV, the names and contact information of at least two references, academic transcripts or their equivalent, a sample of research work, and a brief letter of application (a single document with the above parts is preferred). Submission is via email to the address below. The PhD positions should begin by October 2014. The term of the appointment is for one year initially, which can be extended up to three years contingent on performance and continued funding. Salary and benefits are determined by the German pay scale for state employees. The pay scale, with monthly gross income in Euro, is available at http://oeffentlicher-dienst.info/tv-l/ost/ - known as TV-L Band 13 with the specific salary level within this Band depending on prior experience. The University of Potsdam is an equal opportunity employer.
