With its 17,500 students and 1,600 employees, of whom approximately 1,000 are
engaged in scholarly work, the University of Siegen is an innovative
university oriented to interdisciplinary collaboration. The university offers
an excellent environment for teaching and research with its numerous
interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary research projects and broad spectrum
of courses of study ranging from the humanities and social sciences to

in accordance with international standards into their scholarly work. The
focus of their research should be within the main areas of systematic
linguistics in English (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics) and
encompass work on both theoretical approaches and empirical studies. Expert
knowledge of an additional branch of linguistics (e.g., language acquisition,
corpus linguistics, pragmatics, theory of language) is advantageous.
Requirements include an excellent command of the English language, experience
abroad, and successful acquisition of external funding.

Teaching and examination duties relate both to B.A. and M.A. programs in

research, as conventionally indicated by the quality of one’s doctorate work;
additional academic work which is to be exclusively and comprehensively
evaluated in the course of the application review procedure; considerable
teaching experience; and documented didactic competence. Additional academic
work is to have been accomplished within the context of an assistant
professorship, by means of post-doctorate qualifications (habilitation), or
through scholarly work at a tertiary institution or a non-university research
institute, or within the context of other academic work.

Applicants are expected to engage in active and constructive cooperation in
the context of the university’s self-administrating committees and
