Description:

Applications are invited for a research position (50% employment,
Entgeltgruppe 13 TV-L/2) in the Linguistics Department, working with Prof.
Gerhard Jäger. This vacancy is connected to the award of an ERC Advanced
Grant, entitled Language Evolution: The Empirical Turn. The project will be
based at the University of Tuebingen. In total, the group will consist of
three postdocs, two PhD students, and two student assistants. The principal
activity of the researcher will be to pursue a PhD research project in one or
two of the work packages mentioned on the project homepage
(http://www.sfs.uni-tuebingen.de/~gjaeger/evolaemp/). A solid background in
one of the two research areas is required:

- machine learning methods in language processing, esp. Hidden Markov Models
and kernel methods

- historical-comparative linguistics and typology

Expertise in both areas would be ideal; otherwise the successful applicant is
expected to actively engage in the collaborative efforts of the project and to
acquire the necessary skills.

The Linguistics Department (SfS) and the Tübingen Center for the Study of
Language (TüZLi) offer a stimulating interdisciplinary research environment
with the opportunity of completing a PhD degree.

The initial period of employment will be for 24 months, with the possibility
of extension for another 24 months.

Applications should include CV, an outline of research experience, as well as
names and addresses of up to three references. Applications should be sent by
email to the address below. The position will be open starting April 1, 2013.
Applications received by February 15, 2013 will receive full consideration,
although interviews may start at any time and will continue until the position
has been filled.

Disabled applicants will be preferred if they have the same qualifications as
non-disabled applicants. The University of Tübingen strives to increase the
proportion of women in research and teaching, and therefore encourages
qualified female scientists to apply.
