Professorship (W2) in Computational Psycholinguistics

The Linguistics Department of the University of 
Bochum (Sprachwissenschaftliches Institut) invites 
applications for a position of a full professorship 
(W2) in Computational Psycholinguistics.  

Applicants should be actively engaged in experimental 
research involving methods such as eye-tracking and 
event-related potentials.  In addition, they should 
have considerable experience in computational modelling 
of aspects of human language processing as, e.g., spoken 
word recognition, syntactic processing, or discourse 
comprehension.  These experiences involve the 
application of cognitive architectures and/ or 
probabilistic processing and corpus-based methods.

The ideal candidate would have a proven record of 
international cooperations, extensive experience in 
developing research programs, and an excellent record 
of obtaining research grants.  In addition, required 
is an ability to teach high-quality courses within 
the BA/MA program in Linguistics and Computational 
Linguistics, covering topics such as experimental 
techniques, statistical foundations, and computational
modelling.  A good working knowledge of German is 
desirable but not required.  Also expected is close 
cooperation with other researchers of the Faculty 
of Philology, particularly with linguists, and with 
researchers in adjacent departments such as Psychology 
and Philosophy.

Deadline for applications: November 9, 2007

Please submit your formal application in writing to:
Dekanin der Fakultät für Philologie
Prof. Dr. Kornelia Freitag
Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum
D-44780 Bochum

Informal inquiries may be made to 
Prof. Dr. Ralf Klabunde (klabunde at linguistics.rub.de).
