Description:

Applications are invited for the post of a postdoctoral researcher (full-time
employment) in the Linguistics Department, working with Prof. Gerhard Jaeger.
This vacancy is connected to the award of an ERC Advanced Grant, entitled
'Language Evolution: The Empirical Turn', for the period 2013-18. 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 postdoc will be to undertake research in one of the work
packages described at the project homepage
(http://www.sfs.uni-tuebingen.de/~gjaeger/evolaemp/). Previous experience in
at least one of the following areas is required:
- machine learning methods in language processing, esp. Hidden Markov Models
and kernel methods
- historical/comparative linguistics and typology

Experience 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 salary is figured according to the union contract named TV-L, E13/E14,
depending on professional experience.

The initial period of employment will be for 24 months, with the possibility
of extension for the remaining running time of the project.

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 Tuebingen strives to increase the
proportion of women in research and teaching, and therefore encourages
qualified female scientists to apply.

Further information can be found at the application website address below.

You are welcome to seek further information by contacting Prof. Gerhard Jaeger
via e-mail, e-mail address below.
