The section of German linguistics at the Department of German Philology of the University of Freiburg (Germany) seeks applications for a three-year PhD position in Linguistics or Phonetics (65% E13 TV-L) from October 1, 2019 (if suitable also earlier). The PhD position is embedded in a research project on the sociophonetics of German multiethnolects funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

The PhD candidate will carry out a sociolinguistic study on the perception and evaluation of sound features in the German multiethnolect as used among adolescents. Ideally, he/she will have some experience in experimental designs, data collection via schools and statistics. A solid phonetic, sociolinguistic OR psycholinguistic background is needed. Very good knowledge of German is a prerequisite, although no master in German Linguistics is required.
