 Research position in phonology

At the Universitaet Duesseldorf, Germany, a full-time research position
for a phonologist is open from November 1993.
The position is that of the principal researcher in a project called
"Lexical Phonology: On the theory of phonological rules". The project
aims at the study of various central aspects of the theory of rules and
representations in phonology. The project is again part of a larger grant
"Theorie des Lexikons" at the universities of Duesseldorf, Wuppertal,
Cologne, which has just received renewed funding by the German Science
Foundation (DFG) for the years 1994 - 1996. Contracts can thus be given
up to the end of 1996, maximally.

Candidates should
- hold a PhD or doctorate,
- have a strong background in questions of phonological theory, including
 Lexical Phonology,
- preferably have a publication record in phonology.

The payment is according to the normal range for full-time researchers
("Wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiter") in Germany, with details depending on
age and marital status. Knowledge of German is helpful, but not essential.

Inquiries and applications should be directed to
