Job Title: Prosodic Typology Project

Pending budget approval, the Department of Linguistics/Allgemeine
Sprachwissenschaft at the Universität zu Köln announces an opening for a
doctoral and a postdoctoral position to commence in January 2017. 

Successful applicants will work together in a project on prosodic typology
investigating in particular so-called phrase accents. Of major concern are
languages with phrase accents but lacking lexical stress. Project goals also
include the analysis of prosodic systems of languages which to date have not
been anaylsed in depth, with a special focus on Indonesian languages.

The Postdoc position is a full time position E13 according to the German pay
scale. The Postdoc is expected to work on the analysis of at least two
undescribed prosodic systems on the basis of production data (elicited and
spontaneous) which are already available, to develop and carry out perception
experiments to check and refine the analysis (includes field stays in
Papua/Indonesia) and to publish the results of these investigations.
Furthermore, the Postdoc joins in shared project tasks such as literature
research, joint publications and supporting the principle investigator in
administrating the project.

The Postdoc is expected have a PhD on a prosodic topic in hand by the 31 Dec
2016 (this is not negotiable), to be an expert in the phonetic analysis of
prosodic phenomena (EMU and PRAAT, statistics, etc.), and to be experienced in
the design and implementation of prosodic experiments. Ability and willingness
to work in a team is essential. An advantage are in-depth knowledge of at
least one non-European language or language family, field work experience and
ability to communicate in Malay.

The Universität zu Köln is an equal opportunities employer. Applications of
women are especially encouraged. Handicapped candidates will be given priority
in case of equal professional qualification. 

Applications should include a motivation letter and a CV in a single PDF  (and
nothing else!) which are to be sent to sprachwissenschaft at uni-koeln.de.

Closing date is 25 October 2016.

Final decisions regarding the funding of this project are due by late
