Job Title: 2-year Postdoctoral Fellowship: Marie Curie Zukunftskolleg Incoming Fellowships
Job Rank: Post Doc

Specialty Areas: General Linguistics 


The University of Konstanz invites applications for 2-year postdoc positions
as part of the university's Zukunftskolleg initiative. Applicants must hold a
PhD, and submit a research proposal that includes interdisciplinary issues and
connects with the university's research fields.

Konstanz hosts an inspiring and broad linguistic department with strong links
to neighbouring disciplines such as computer science, psychology and
philosophy. We would welcome applications from linguists to round out and
complement the department's research profile for two years. 

Deadline for application is May 18, 2015.

The Fellowships will begin on February 1, 2016, and end on January 31, 2018.

The target group consists of excellent researchers at the postdoctoral level,
leadership abilities and a capacity for teamwork, so that they can reasonably
be expected to take up leading roles in academia and European research and
innovation policy.

Applicant Requirements for this Fellowship include:

- Candidates must be in possession of a doctoral degree (PhD thesis submitted
and defended) at the moment of the decision within the second committee
meeting – September 28-29, 2015;
- Candidates must not hold a permanent position, a professorship, or have an
habilitation or equivalent (Venia legendi);
- Candidates with their own position funded by another program, which can be
transferred to Konstanz, are also eligible (other EU funding is not eligible);
- Applicants must propose a research project that ties in with a discipline
represented at the University of Konstanz. Applicants should contact potential
mentors (Local Hosts) among the researchers at the University of Konstanz in
order to ensure appropriate affiliation. Support from the department
strengthens the application;
- Applicants must have had their main residence and worked outside Germany for
24 months or more during the three years prior to the application deadline
(timeframe: May 19, 2012- May 18, 2015);
- All ethical issues raised by a proposed project (if applicable) must be
described in the project outline. The candidate should explain how these will
be addressed, so as to conform with national and Seventh Framework Program
(FP7) ethical principles. For advice, please see the CORDIS website on ethics
(http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/ethics_en.html) and contact the Zukunftskolleg
office. If a proposed project that has passed the peer review stage raises any
ethical issues, it is forwarded for review by the University of Konstanz
Ethics Committee.

Fellows have an opportunity to teach. They are expected to participate
actively in the regular weekly meetings of the Zukunftskolleg and to have
their place of residence in Konstanz.

Fellows are selected on the basis of their academic excellence, the quality
and topicality of their research project outline, personal aptitude with
regard to leadership and team skills, and interdis-ciplinary interest.
International experience in teaching or research, and a strong interest in
inter-disciplinary topics are desirable.

All applications and supporting materials must be submitted in English via the
Online Application Platform below.

The required documents include a completed application form, a letter of
motivation, research proposal, curriculum vitae, a writing sample, and two
letters of reference.
