 Institution/Organization: Universität zu Köln 
Department: Linguistics/Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft

Level: PhD 

Duties: Research
Specialty Areas: Phonetics; Phonology; Typology 


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 Doctoral position is a 65% position E13 according to the German pay scale.
The doctoral student is expected to work either on the analysis of one
undescribed prosodic system on the basis of production data (elicited and
spontaneous) which are already available or to carry out a comparative and
theoretical study on the phonology and typology of phrase accents.
Furthermore, the doctoral student joins in shared project tasks such as
literature research and the annotation and analysis of prosodic data.

The Doctoral student is expected to have successfully finished an MA in
linguistics with a specialization in phonetics and phonology, ideally prosody.
She or he is familiar with the phonetic analysis of prosodic phenomena and
able and willing to work in a team. An advantage are statistical expertise,
in-depth knowledge of at least one non-European language or language family,
field work experience and/or 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
