The interdisciplinary research training program SToRE of the Collaborative Research
Center (CRC) 991 “The Structure of Representations in Language, Cognition, and
Science” awards up to four fellowships for up to six months starting in October 2018
for international graduate/postgraduate students. The fellowship consists of a
monthly stipend of EUR 1,468 (plus child care allowance where applicable) and an
economy class roundtrip flight/train ticket. Successful applicants will be
graduate/postgraduate students enrolled as a PhD student at a university outside
Germany, working on a topic that is related to the CRC’s research program.
fellowship is thus intended for PhD students who work on a topic that is related to
the CRC’s core business. Building on Barsalou’s (1992) work, the CRC assumes that
frames are the universal format of human cognition. That is to say, they are
applicable across a wide variety of disciplines, from psychology to semantics.
Cluster A covers the general and foundational issues related to frames: their
grounding, composition and properties. Cluster B groups together the projects that
explore dynamic frames, with event frames and event modification as a unifying
dimension. The C-cluster has operations on frames as a central aspect, specifically
concerning countability, nominal derivation and modification. The D-projects apply
frames beyond their original boundaries and extend their applicability to a wide
variety of fields, such as information structure and phonology.
