Ten PhD student positions or postdoctoral positions on limits of variability in languages, Potsdam (Germany)

Deadline: Sunday 19 September 2021

The Collaborative Research Center SFB 1287 'Limits of Variability in Language: Cognitive, Grammatical, and Social Aspects' in Potsdam, Germany, invites applications for 10 positions for PhD candidates and Postdocs available from July 2021 for a duration of four years (subject to funding commitment).

The CRC provides a fantastic research infrastructure including a large interdisciplinary network of researchers (21 PIs in 13 scientific projects, one transfer project, and three service projects), its own graduate school and funding opportunities for conference visits, summer schools, hosting international experts etc. By modelling the factors influencing linguistic behaviours, the CRC contributes to a better understanding of the underlying mental representations and processing architectures in individual language users, as well as of the grammatical options available in individual languages and specific linguistic varieties, and options shared by particular subgroups of languages users.
