Doctoral position in General Linguistics at the Johannes Gutenberg University
The Emmy Noether Research Group 'Neurolinguistic Foundations of Information
Structure' (funded by the German Research Foundation, DFG) headed by Petra
Schumacher is seeking to fill the position of a doctoral researcher. Starting date:
February 1, 2012 or soon thereafter.
The doctoral position is part of a neurolinguistic project that investigates language
comprehension at the interface of syntax, semantics and information structure
(http://www.linguistik.uni-mainz.de/schumacher/research-group/). The doctoral
researcher will work within our group on a project that investigates referential
processing in German. The project will either extend previous research with
unimpaired comprehenders or investigate referential processing in aphasia
patients. The primary experimental method employed will be event-related brain
The ideal candidate should have a degree in linguistics or a related discipline. S/he
should have a keen interest in experimental work, as well as in syntactic and
pragmatic theory. Experience with event-related brain potentials and/or language
impairment research will be a plus. Knowledge of German would be beneficial. The
successful candidate will work towards a PhD in Linguistics from the University of
Mainz on a topic related to the research group.
The position has an initial term for two years, with the possibility of extension
contingent on future funding. The salary and social benefits are determined by the
German pay scale for state employees (EG 13 TV-L 50%).
Interested candidates are invited to send their application materials electronically
to petra(dot)schumacher(at)uni-mainz(dot)de. Pdf files are preferred. Applications
can be written in German or English and should include CV, contact information of
at least two referees, and a brief statement of research interests. Applications
received by January 06, 2012 will receive full consideration, but the search
continues until the position is filled.
