Dear Funknetters,

I'd be thankful if you could forward the job posting below to students  
that might be interested.

Many thanks, --Martin

I would like to advertise one position for a PhD student (half-time,  
German payscale E13/2, i.e. around ?1400/month) for a research project  
at the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Study (FRIAS) within the School  
of Language and Literature. The title of the project is 'Cognitive  
Linguistics at the interface of corpus linguistics and  
psycholinguistics'. The ideal candidate will have a Master's degree in  
linguistics, background knowledge of either corpus linguistics or  
experimental methodology, and a general interest in quantitative,  
usage-based approaches to language. Working knowledge of German is a  
plus but no necessity. The candidate will have the opportunity to work  
towards a PhD thesis and to collaborate with faculty members of the  
different philologies and the
Cognitive Science department at the University of Freiburg.

Potential applicants are invited to contact Martin Hilpert  
(martin.hilpert at to find out more about the  
project. Applications should include a CV, one or two work samples, a  
brief research proposal (no more than 5 pages) and names of three  
references. Applications by qualified women are particularly welcome.  
Handicapped applicants are given preference in case of equal  

Applications received by June 30, 2008 will receive fullest  
consideration. The project has already started; the position will  
remain open until filled. The position will be funded for two years  
initially. Further funding is anticipated but cannot be guaranteed.  
Applications should be sent to:

Dr. Martin Hilpert
