The Department of English at the University of Tübingen is offering a postdoc position in the field of psycholinguistics. It is a research position with teaching responsibilities. The position is located at the Chair of Psycholinguistics and Applied Language Studies lead by Prof. Dr. Andrea Weber. Research at the chair currently focuses on comprehension of spoken language in adult listeners with a special focus on L2 listeners and on foreign-accented speech. The successful candidate is expected to develop, in collaboration with members of the chair, a line of research that complements our current research program. He or she will teach two linguistic classes (4 SWS) per semester in the current BA and MA courses of the English seminar.

Young scientists with a completed PhD in the field of experimental psychology, psycholinguistics, or phonetic sciences are encouraged to apply. Important additional criteria are a commitment to theoretically motivated research and a demonstrated ability to publish research findings.

The starting date is October 1st or as soon as possible thereafter. The employment (TVL E13, 100%, 2 years with the possibility of an extension) will be arranged by the administration of the University of Tübingen. Disabled persons will be preferred in case of equal qualification. The University seeks to raise the number of women in research and teaching and therefore urges qualified women academics to apply for the position.
