Post Doc at the University of Göttingen

At the Courant Research Centre “Text Structures” at the University of Göttingen a full post-doc position is available starting from *Dec. 01,  2014* or as soon as possible within the junior research group “Theoretical Linguistics". The salary is in accordance with the German TV-L 13 regulations. The contract shall expire on *Sept. 30, 2016*. 

The successful applicant has a PhD in linguistics, research experience including publications in syntax/semantics/pragmatics and in particular research interest in at least one of the following fields: 

- the syntax, semantics and pragmatics of indefinite NPs, 

- the syntax, and semantics of conditionals, 

- the syntax and semantics of questions and the pragmatics of answers, 

- information structure, 

- syntax and semantics of tense and aspect.  

The applicant will be expected to get involved in collaborative research projects at the University of Göttingen and at the Courant Research Centre “Text Structures” including interdisciplinary research. A research record in mathematical or in experimental linguistics are of advantage. Moreover, experience with computational linguistics, programming and statistics as well as proficiency in German constitute an advantage but are no strict requirements. 

The University of Göttingen attempts to increase the number of female researchers and therefore explicitly invites women to apply. Disabled candidates will be preferred in case of similar qualification.
