The Faculty of Humanities at the University of Tübingen invites applications for a position at the Institute of Linguistics as a

W3 Professorship of General Linguistics/ Pragmatics

to commence on 1 October 2020.

The successful candidate must have outstanding academic credentials in the area of General Linguistics, with a focus on formal and experimental pragmatics. Proven excellence in both the application of cognitive modeling – such as Bayesian methods – and in experimental psycholinguistics are required. Because this professorship will have a leading role in the General Linguistics, Computational Linguistics and Cognitive Science degree programs, the future holder needs to be able to represent the full bandwidth of Linguistics including all its interdisciplinary connections with the cognitive sciences.

The successful candidate must be willing to acquire third-party funding and to participate in collaborative third-party funded projects at the University.

Required qualifications include a PhD or equivalent international degree and postdoctoral qualifications equivalent to the requirements for tenure. This includes evidence of teaching effectiveness.

The University of Tübingen is particularly interested in increasing the share number of women in research and teaching and therefore strongly encourages women candidates to apply.

In line with its internationalization agenda, the university welcomes applications from researchers outside Germany. Applications from equally qualified candidates with disabilities will be given preference.

Send applications together with the required documents (curriculum vitae and outline of academic career, copies of certificates and degrees, publications list, list of teaching experience, overview of core research areas) in electronic form to the Dean of the Faculty of the Humanities at the University of Tübingen at the email for applications below. Enquiries may also be sent to this address.
