Upcoming call for postdoctoral positions in Spain: expressions of interest in the Formal Linguistics Group at Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona)
The Formal Linguistics Group (GLiF, Grup de Lingüística Formal) at Pompeu Fabra University would like to draw the attention of young postdoctoral researchers in Linguistics to the imminent opening of two different calls for a number of 2-year postdoctoral contracts within the “Juan de la Cierva” program of the Spanish Ministry for Economy, Industry, and Competitiveness (MINEICO).
1) Ayudas para contratos Juan de la Cierva-formación: For early stage researchers who were awarded their PhD between 1 January 2016 and 31 December 2017. The application period will start on 21 December 2017 and will end on 11 January 2018. The currently available information about the call can be found here (in Spanish):
2) Ayudas para contratos Juan de la Cierva-incorporación: For researchers who were awarded their PhD between 1 January 2013 and 31 December 2015 The application period will start on 20 December 2017 and will end on 10 January 2018. The currently available information about the call can be found here (in Spanish):
Applications by eligible candidates must be supported by a member of a department or research center within Spain, willing to incorporate the successful applicant.
GLiF encourages qualified candidates, working in areas within the research scope of the group, to send their expression of interest to the intended supporter for the postdoctoral contract and to the group’s coordinator, Josep Quer (firstname.lastname@example.org). Interested candidates must send their cv, a short expression of interest and the link to their webpage, if available, by 15 December 2017.
The main research areas in the group are the following ones:
• Argument structure
• Clinical linguistics
• Distributional/distributed approaches to computational semantics
• Experimental pragmatics and semantics
• Formal pragmatics and formal models of discourse structure
• Information structure
• Interplay between computational linguistics and linguistic theory: computational semantics, semantic theory, and grounding language in vision
• Language change
• Morphology-syntax interface
• Philosophy of language
• Probabilistic semantics
• Sign language grammar and discourse
• Syntax-semantics interface
• Theoretical linguistics
For more detailed information and contact details, visit the pages of the GLiF faculty members.
Please note that GLiF itself is neither the grant-awarding body nor a department, nor the only group based at an institution that might incorporate successful applicants. Please note also that support from members of the group is not automatic but subject to their agreement in the light of the candidate’s academic profile and the ability to fulfill the teaching requirements of the Department of Translation and Language Sciences (80 hours/year). In addition, each supporter is only allowed to back one applicant.
