The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to engage in non-discriminatory hiring practices. We urge employers not to discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

This post-doc position is offered by the 10-year project 'Empirical foundations
of linguistics' that is starting in 2011. This position is linked to
the work package « Prosodic phrasing and prosodic hierarchy : a data driven
approach » of the strand « Phonetic and phonological complexity - boosting
empirical approaches » project.

The successful candidate will investigate how to provide a formal grammar
that accounts for prosodic phrasing in French in a stochastic grammatical
paradigm. As many independantly motivated constraints come into play and
interact in a complex way, corpus analyses will be necessary to formulare
and outweight the various constraints/parameters. Applications for a full-time
6 month position or for a 1 year part-time position will be considered.

The applicant should have a PhD in phonology or phonetics. S/he should also
have the following skills :
(i) excellent knoweldge of phonological and phonetics works dedicated to
phrasing and the phonology-syntax interface. Comprehensive understanding
of recent stochastic approaches to phonological modeling will be highly
valuable (stochastic OT, etc.)
(ii) research experience in phrasing in French and/or in other Romance or
Germanic languages
(iii) experience in corpus work and experimental phonology (designing an
experience to elicit data, etc.)

The candidate should send a CV with list of publications, a website where
publications can be found and the names of two referents.

Application Deadline: 10-Nov-2011
