Description:

In our newly established long-term project, “Modeling of Knowledge Networks in Medieval Romance Speaking Europe Based on Linguistic Data – ALMA”, we are offering a PostDoc position as a research associate in the field of historical linguistics of French (Old French, Middle French).

The tasks include the editing of lexical-semantic analyses of medieval French terms of medicine and jurisdiction (underpinned by Latin and in close cooperation with colleagues working on Italian, Occitan, Spanish, and Catalan) from the 12th to the 15th century. The overall goal is to describe the development processes of the European vernacular languages into languages of knowledge and science. The first project phase focuses on text editions of manuscripts, establishing text corpora that will lay the foundation for the analyses.

The requirements include:
- a Doctoral degree relevant for the field
- previous academic experience,
- a profound knowledge of text philology and historical lexicology or lexicography,
- while German, the team language, can be learned on-site, very good knowledge of Modern French and English is required; knowledge of another Romance language would be an asset,
- motivation, ability to work in a team, and the will to take over responsibility.

The project uses lexicological-lexicographical and corpus-linguistic methods. Furthermore, it focuses on the modeling of research results through Semantic Web technologies and develops domain ontologies. Knowledge of, or affinity for digital methods is therefore very welcome.

The 100% position (salary TV-L 13 https://lbv.landbw.de/documents/20181/42056/4_Tabellenentgelt+ab+01.01.2021.pdf/08a4ac31-0933-5ce5-549d-a1aca757edde?t=1605269164717) is (initially) limited until 12/2025.

We look forward to receiving applications by committed researchers who are interested both in meticulous fundamental research in historical linguistics and in its combination with digital methods and who are motivated to help establish a new research project.
You can apply for the position with your CV, a motivation letter that explains why you're interested in, and qualified for the position, and preferably three representative publications. Recommendation letters by academic referees are welcome. Please send a single PDF file to the application email below.
