PostDoc in Language Documentation, Typology, Corpus Linguistics, and Archiving – Berlín

Organization: Leibniz-Zentrum Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft (ZAS)
Web Address: http://leibniz-zas.de/
Job Rank: Post Doc
Specialty Areas: Language Documentation; Text/Corpus Linguistics; Typology; Language Archiving

Description:

The Leibniz-Zentrum Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft (ZAS) invites applications for one PostDocs position. The deadline for applications is July 1, 2020.

The position is part of the collaborative project “QUEST: Quality – Established. Testing and applying curation criteria and quality standards for audiovisual, annotated linguistic data”. (see https://cutt.ly/quest). The QUEST project develops – in consultation with the research community – quality standards and curation criteria for annotated, audiovisual linguistic data and develops and tests quality control procedures for the creation and curation of such resources. QUEST focuses on digital research data collected through language documentation and through research on multilingualism, but aims to develop more widely applicable standards. QUEST will improve existing data sets and future data collection procedures in terms of reproducibility of research results and long-term accessibility and reusability, also for wider scientific and non-scientific uses.

QUEST is carried out by a consortium of four German research institutions, in collaboration with international partners. The applicant will contribute to the subproject “AP 2.1 Kurationskriterien für sprachtypologische Sekundärnutzung” carried out at the Leibniz-ZAS Berlin. Responsibilities include the development of criteria for the curation of language documentation data for cross-linguistic research, in particular annotated texts stemming from fieldwork on small, often endangered languages, typically in ELAN format. The aim of this subproject is to develop and establish a label for annotated spoken corpora that certifies their usability for cross-linguistic corpus research, allowing for the application of quantitative methods. Another aim of the project at the Leibniz-ZAS Berlin in Berlin is to develop and carry out exemplary cross-linguistic studies using QUEST data in collaboration with project partners. The successful candidate will take over from the current state of the project, in which documentations of individual corpora are being prepared.

Within ZAS, the applicant will collaborate with the DoReCo project (http://doreco.info/). Within the QUEST consortium, the applicant will collaborate with the QUEST project partner projects in Hamburg, Cologne, and Mannheim (see https://cutt.ly/quest).

We are looking for a person with experience in language documentation, corpus building, language archiving, and in language typology and linguistic theory. A working knowledge of German is a plus.

The PostDoc position commences on October 1, 2020, with a fixed term until April 30, 2022.

Please apply via Email until July, 1, 2020, with one single pdf file, subject “QUEST application”, to both Frank Seifart (seifartleibniz-zas.de) and Manfred Krifka (krifkaleibniz-zas.de).

Your application should contain:
– A cover letter that states in particular the nature of your interest in the project and your expertise that you would contribute
– Your CV with a list of your publications,
– The names and e-mail addresses of two persons that would provide a reference if so asked.ZAS is an equal opportunity employer.

Application Deadline: 01-Jul-2020

Postdoctoral researcher in Linguistics Faculty of Humanities – Research school ACLC

Publication date 9 March 2020
Closing date 30 April 2020
Level of education PhD
Hours 26,6 hours per week
Salary indication €3,389 to €4,978 gross per month, based on 38 hours per week
Vacancy number 20-180

Research at the Faculty of Humanities UvA is carried out by six research schools under the aegis of the Amsterdam Institute for Humanities Research. The Amsterdam Centre for Language and Communication (ACLC), one of the six research schools, offers a three year postdoc position as part of the NWO funded research project ‘Exceptions rule! Lexical conditions on grammatical structure’, led by Dr Eva van Lier. Applications are invited from excellent candidates who wish to conduct corpus-based and experimental research on the grammatical behaviour of alternating verbs in lesser-studied languages.

What are you going to do?

According to usage-based linguistic theory, verb-argument constructions are not formed by abstract rules operating on the entire verbal lexicon, but rather emerge from speakers’ experience with specific verbs in communicative context. Psycholinguistic (priming) experiments confirm that language users have highly verb-specific grammatical knowledge. However, such experiments typically assess only few constructions in few languages; in particular dative alternations in certain Germanic languages.

This project will study various classes of alternating verbs across structurally widely diverging languages. Alternating verbs have in common that they require speakers to choose between multiple argument-coding frames.

The postdoc’s tasks are embedded into a larger project, with a team consisting of the PI, a PhD candidate, and specialists/informants of two lesser-studied languages: Chechen and Kamang (Alor, Indonesia). Based on the analysis of alternating verbs in corpora of these languages, the postdoc will design (priming) experiments to assess the nature and relevance of speakers’ verb-specific grammatical knowledge. These experiments will be run at field sites; the postdoc will analyse the results in collaboration with the language specialists, in the comparative context of the PhD project (a typological study of alternating verbs). In addition, the research results will be valorised and applied in various educational settings, with the help of a student assistant.

Tasks will include:

  • conducting corpus linguistic research;
  • designing and testing psycholinguistic experiments;
  • analysing and interpreting experimental data;
  • setting up and coordinating valorisation activities (teacher training, exhibition);
  • collaborating with PI, PhD, language specialists, student assistant;
  • publishing peer-reviewed (co-authored) articles;
  • presenting research results at conferences/workshops;
  • co-organising expert and team meetings.

What do we require?

The successful applicant must have:

  • a PhD in Linguistics;
  • demonstrable knowledge of
    • corpus linguistics
    • experimental design
    • statistics;
  • demonstrable familiarity with
    • ELAN
    • Toolbox
    • FLEx
    • R;
  • a keen interest in / experience with morpho-syntactic typology and linguistic diversity world-wide;
  • a keen interest in / experience with societal valorisation of (linguistic) research;
  • excellent skills in academic English, both written and spoken;
  • excellent social and organizational skills;
  • ability and willingness to work in a team;
  • a broad international orientation and network.

Our offer

The postdoctoral researcher will get an employment contract for 26,6 hours per week (0,7 FTE) for a period of 36 months at the Department of Linguistics of the Faculty of Humanities. The research will be carried out under the aegis of ACLC. Initially an employment contract will be given for 12 months, with an extension for the following 24 months on the basis of a positive evaluation. The intended starting date of the contract is 1 December 2020. The gross monthly salary (on full-time basis) will range from €3,389 (scale 10) to €4,978 (scale 11). The UFO profile for this position is, dependent on relevant experience, Researcher 4 (scale 10) or Researcher 3 (scale 11).  The Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities applies.
