Job Rank: Full Professor

Specialty Areas: General Linguistics; Morphology; Syntax

Required Language(s): German (deu)


Friedrich Schiller University Jena is seeking to fill a position as Professor (W3) for German Linguistics: Grammar and Lexicon starting at the next possible date.

Your professorship will cover German linguistics with a primary specialization in grammar and lexicon in research and teaching. The successful candidate will deal with simple and complex units from word level to sentence level from a usage-based perspective. The application of data-intensive, empirical methods such as qualitative or quantitative corpus analysis or experimental methods is expected.

In addition to independent research in the areas mentioned, teacher training is also an important part of the professorship. Proven experience or an interest in linguistics in education is therefore also required.

The successful applicant will be expected to teach at undergraduate and graduate level, and develop a research program with international visibility. The successful applicant will teach in teacher-training courses, as well as in the Bachelor and Master programs run by the Institute of German Linguistics (German Studies, German Linguistics and Linguistics). Teaching language is German. You will also be expected to play a decisive role in the forthcoming revision of the structure and content of the institute’s degree programmes.

Experience in attracting external funding and grants is expected, as is scientific visibility at a national and international level, leadership competence and the willingness to participate in the development of interdisciplinary research topics.

Applicants must have a postdoctoral lecture qualification (Habilitation) or an equivalent record of high quality publications together with teaching experience.

The Friedrich Schiller University is an equal opportunity employer, striving to increase the share of women at the university. Therefore, we strongly encourage women to apply. In case of equal qualifications, applications from challenged persons are favoured. In case of a first-time professorial appointment, employment will be on a tenure-track basis.
