Dear Colleagues

I have not been able to find a suitable PhD candidate in
"Phylolinguistics" within my eurasia3angle project at the MPI in Jena
yet, I re-opened the position. The
position is for up to 4 years, beginning September 1st, 2016.

addition to an interest in applying computational methods in phylogenetic
linguistics, candidates should have knowledge of one or more Transeurasian
languages and ideally, also sufficient command of Russian to access grammars and
language descriptions. Given the specialisation already present in our team, a
researcher with some Tungusic or Mongolic knowledge would be most compatible.

 If interested,
please send the application documents specified below to robbeets at shh.mpg.de by
May 1st, 2016.

a letter of motivation detailing why you are interested and how you meet the
qualifications (max. 500 words)

a brief research proposal specifying how you could contribute to this project (max.
1000 words, excluding references) 

a copy of your MA dissertation if already available

a curriculum vitae indicating educational background, previous research
experience and publication history.

(v) contact
information for three references 

recommendation letters from three referees sent directly from the referee to
Martine Robbeets

supplementary information, please visit our project website.


Best wishes,
