From: Doreen Georgi [doreen.georgi at uni-potsdam.de]
Subject: Linguistic Theories; Morphology; Syntax; Typology, PhD, University of Potsdam, Germany

 Institution/Organization: University of Potsdam 
Department: Department of Linguistics 
Web Address: https://www.ling.uni-potsdam.de/en/ 

Level: PhD 

Duties: Research
Specialty Areas: Linguistic Theories; Morphology; Syntax; Typology 


We invite applications for a PhD position at the Department of Linguistics,
University of Potsdam (Germany). The department carries out internationally
visible research on the theory of grammar, psycho-/ neurolinguistics and
computational linguistics. Linguistics is part of the university’s research
focus “Cognitive Sciences”. 

The prospective candidate will specialize in grammar theory. S/he will conduct
research on cross-linguistic variation in morphology, syntax or morpho-syntax
and the formal modelling of this variation, supervised by Doreen Georgi
(assistant professor for variation and variability in grammatical systems). 

The applicant should have a solid knowledge of at least one current theory of
syntax and of morphology. Previous work on non-Indo-European languages,
fieldwork experience or experimental work is not required but highly welcome.
The successful candidate may broaden his/her knowledge of experimental methods
and computational modelling at the Department in order to connect it with
his/her research on grammar theory.

The doctoral scholarship is funded for three years as a part-time position
(50%) and includes social benefits (payscale: 0.5 TVL-E13). The student will
have desk space and a PC as well as access to travel money for conferences
(within limits). There is no teaching requirement and no course work schedule,
but the student will be able to benefit from the courses taught at the
Linguistics Department, from interactions with international guest speakers,
as well as from linguistic and career development courses offered by current
and prospective graduate schools at Potsdam University (e.g. the Potsdam
Graduate School). Previous knowledge of German is not required; the language
of interaction in the Department is English. 

The University of Potsdam strives to increase the proportion of women in
research and teaching and specifically encourages female applicants to apply
for this position.

Starting date: as soon as possible

The application should include:

- a CV (education, employment, list of talks and papers, frameworks the
candidate is familiar with/has worked in, other relevant skills)
- a statement of purpose (describing the candidate’s research interests, plans
for future research/ideas for a PhD project, 2 pages maximum)
- a pdf of the MA thesis (in English, German or French; if the thesis is not
yet finished or if it is written in a different language: send a detailed
summary of the thesis project in English)
- if available: pdfs of other papers written by the candidate (e.g. advanced
seminar papers)
- a copy of the MA degree (if available, otherwise: indicate the date when the
degree will be obtained)
- contact information of two referees

Application documents should be sent *via e-mail* to:
