The position starts in January 2016 and ends in June 2019. The candidate will pursue a PhD project in the project A02 "Argument linking and extended locality. A frame-based implementation" of the Collaborative Research Center CRC 991 (head of the project: Prof. Dr. Laura Kallmeyer). http://www.sfb991.uni-duesseldorf.de/en/a02/ Project A02 aims at incorporating a frame-based theory of lexical semantics into an architecture for a syntax-semantics interface based on Tree Adjoining Grammars or related formalisms.
The candidate should be interested in theoretical language modeling at the syntax-semantics interface, in grammar formalisms for the syntax-semantics interface and in grammar implementation.
Knowledge of German is not a prerequisite.
The CRC 991 offers a rich and stimulating research environment: It is a large collection of research projects that focusses on the structure of representations in language, cognition and science with a particular emphasis on frames and on lexical semantics.
The University seeks to advance the equality of men and women and therefore emphatically encourages women to apply. In case of equal qualification, preference will be given to people with disabilities.
