Announcement of Vacancy

The Department of Linguistics at the Max Planck 
Institute in Leipzig has a vacancy for a Senior 
Researcher in the areas of language history and 
prehistory, linguistic typology, and description 
of little studied and endangered languages.

The five-year non-renewable position is available 
from 01 January 2007; a later starting date may 
be negotiable.

Prerequisites for an application are a PhD and 
publications in one of the above mentioned areas.

The salary is according to the German TVöD. The 
Max Planck Society is concerned to employ more 
disabled people; applications from disabled 
people are explicitly sought. The Max Planck 
Society wishes to increase the proportion of 
women in areas in which they are 
underrepresented; women are therefore explicitly 
encouraged to apply.

Applicants are requested to send their complete 
dossier (including curriculum vitae, description 
of research interests, two letters of 
recommendation, and a piece of written work on 
one of the relevant topics) no later than 30 
September 2006 to:
