Doc­toral Can­did­ate in Lin­guist­ics

The University of Helsinki – among the best in the world
The Faculty of Arts (https://www.helsinki.fi/en/faculty-of-arts) of the University of Helsinki is Finland’s oldest institution for teaching and research in the humanities and the largest in terms of the structure and range of disciplines. It is also a significant international community fostering research, education and cultural interaction.

For the project ‘Language emerging from human sociality: the case of speech representation’ the Faculty of Arts currently invites applications for the position of a
DOCTORAL CANDIDATE
in Linguistics for a fixed term of 3 years, starting no later than April 2019.

The doctoral candidate will be conducting full-time research and work towards the completion of a PhD-thesis within the field of linguistic typology. The position may include some teaching (no more than 5%) and administrative duties.

The project ‘Language emerging from human sociality: the case of speech representation’ (led by Dr Stef Spronck and Dr Seppo Kittilä) seeks to understand the semantic and structural range of expressions roughly signalling ‘x said p’. The doctoral candidate will be working with a cross-linguistic sample examining specific research questions within this project. Applicants should familiarise themselves with the objectives and research questions of the project and address these in their application letter: see https://participationgrammar.net/emerging.

The ideal applicant is a highly motivated student with a background in linguistic typology or closely related field, and a completed MA-degree (or equivalent) by the start of the position. A strong interest in theoretical linguistics and the philosophy of language are an asset. Experience with statistics and the programme R are desirable, but can be substituted by a commitment to learning about R in the early stages of the project.
The University of Helsinki offers a salary dependent on qualifications and work experience. The salary will be based on levels 2–4 of the job requirement scheme for teaching and research personnel in the salary system of Finnish universities. In addition, the appointee shall be paid a salary component based on personal work performance. The salary will be EUR 2065–3022 per month, depending on the appointee’s qualifications and work experience. The appointment starts with a probationary period of six months.

Applicants are requested to enclose with their applications the following English-language documents as one pdf file:
1) A curriculum vitae
2) A letter of motivation
3) One or two representative pieces of your writing (preferably including your MA-thesis)
4) The name and contact details of at least one referee
Please name the pdf file with your last name and the initials of your first name.

Please submit your application, together with the required attachments, through the University of Helsinki Recruitment System via the link Apply for job. Applicants who are currently employees of the University of Helsinki are requested to leave their application via the SAP HR portal https://saphr.it.helsinki.fi/irj/portal.
The deadline for applications is February 15, 2019.
Any queries regarding the project should be directed at Dr Stef Spronck (stef.spronck@helsinki.fi).
