Job Title: Research Fellow

Job Rank: Post Doc

Specialty Areas: Psycholinguistics


The institute of linguistics at the University of Leipzig is looking for a recent graduate to join our institute for up to 6 years. (The exact duration of the position is a matter of law, and depends primarily on the duration of previous research positions, and so roughly on the time elapsed since obtaining your degree.) The payscale is anticipated to be E13 TV-L (

While there are teaching duties (to the tune of 4 hours a week), the position is intended to permit young researchers to qualify themselves for a (German) professorship by writing a Habilitation, and so independent research is very strongly encouraged.

The position fills a psycholinguistic shaped gap in the expertise of the linguistics faculty. However, there are psycholinguists in neighboring institutes, as well as at the nearby MPI for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences ( Nevertheless, your interests should not be completely orthogonal to ours, but should overlap with them in some way (i.e. you should be knowledgeable about and interested in some aspect of grammar).

- Teaching (4hrs/wk): BA/MA Methods Courses (Statistics, Experimental methods in linguistics), and courses in the PhD program
- Advising of BA/MA theses
- Participation in the cooperative research projects of the institute

- Completed PhD
- Expertise in experimental methods for the study of language production or comprehension
- Knowledge of statistics
- Knowedge of at least one core area of linguistics
- Internationally visible publications
