Job Announcement: Universität Stuttgart
French; Computational Linguistics; Semantics: Researcher, Universität Stuttgart, Stuttgart, Germany
Sonderforschungsbereich SFB 732
|Job Location:||Stuttgart, Germany|
|Title:||Postdoc position (65%) in theoretical linguistics|
We invite applications for a post-doc position (65%) in theoretical linguistics (lexical semantics and its interfaces with morphology/syntax/pragmatics) at the University of Stuttgart, Germany. The position should be filled as soon as possible and is available until the 30th of June 2018. Salary is according to the German TV-L E13 scale.
The candidate will contribute to the project B5 of the Sonderforschungsbereich (collaborative research center) 732, (URL above), 'Incremental Specification in Context'. The central aims of the project are (i) to construct semantic analyses of French verbs that account for the way their event inferences vary in context, and to account for the lexical, supralexical and sub-lexical factors that influence these inferences/ the disambiguation process, and (ii) to develop lexical resources that enable these analyses.
- Ph.D. in theoretical or computational linguistics
- Specialization in lexical semantics
- Preferably some experience in relevant domains of computational linguistics (XML and processing of XML data, corpus-linguistic tools, parsing, programming or scripting languages)
- Very good command of French for candidates without computational background.
An interest in diachronic syntax/semantics of Romance languages is welcome, but not required.
We offer the opportunity to work on cutting-edge research projects in a dynamic and international research team with up-to-date infrastructure and resources. English is the working language.
Please send applications to Prof. Achim Stein by September 1st 2014 by email (address below). Applications should be sent in PDF format and include a CV, a list of publications, the names of two referees, two relevant publications and explicit statements about foreign language competences and computational skills.
The University of Stuttgart is an equal opportunity employer. Applications of women are strongly encouraged. Severely challenged persons will be given preference in case of equal qualifications.
