The Collaborative Research Centre CRC 1287 “Limits ofVariability in Language: Cognitive, Computational, and Grammatical Aspects” inPotsdam, Germany, invites applications for 10 positions for PhD candidates andPostdocs available from July 2021 for a duration of four years Thelinguistic system exhibits a high degree of variability at all levels oflinguistic description. This variability in language can be characterised as arange of different possible linguistic behaviours that are available to anindividual language user, a group of language users, or in specific languages.The variability is limited by the constraints of the underlying linguisticsystem and shaped by cognitive and social or communicative factors. This variabilityis not just reducible to random noise but provides an important source ofinformation to explain and predict linguistic behaviour. By modelling thefactors influencing linguistic behaviours, the CRC (21 PIs in 13 scientific projects,one transfer project, and three service projects) contributes to a betterunderstanding of the underlying mental representations and processingarchitectures in individual language users, as well as of the

grammatical optionsavailable in individual languages andspecific linguistic varieties, and options shared by particular subgroups of languages users. TheCRC provides a fantastic research infrastructure including a largeinterdisciplinary network of researchers, its own graduate school (successfulPhD candidates and Postdocs automatically become members of the MGK <https://www.uni-potsdam.de/en/sfb1287/projects/special-projects/mgk> - Integrated ResearchTraining Group), and funding opportunities for conference visits, summerschools, hosting international experts etc. Applicantscan apply for one or more of the following projects <https://www.uni-potsdam.de/en/sfb1287/projects> according to their interest and qualification: B01:(In)Variability in prosodic cuesand their incremental use in perception, production, and interaction (IsabellWartenburger, Outi Tuomainen, Sandra Hanne) B02: The linkbetween production and comprehension. Insights from aphasia (Frank Burchert,Nicole Stadie) B03: Modelling theconnection between eye-movement control, sentence processing, and brain signals(Shravan Vasishth, Ralf Engbert, Milena Rabovsky) C03: Effects ofvariable input on word learning and word recognition in infants (Barbara Höhle,Adamantios Gafos) C06: Grammatical processing and syntactic change (Ulrike Demske, ClaudiaFelser) C07: Limits of variability in phonotactic acquisition due to universalbiases: A cross-linguisticinvestigation of monolingual and bilingual infants (Natalie Boll-Avetisyan) C08:Consequences of head-argument order for syntax (Gisbert Fanselow) T01: Transforming text across media(Manfred Stede, Tatjana Scheffler) TheUniversity of Potsdam has a vibrant and interdisciplinary scientific communityspanning many disciplines, including leading groups in the field ofcognitive sciences (http://www.uni-potsdam.de/en/cognitive-sciences/index.html).The University is located in the city of Potsdam, which is connected toBerlin city centre via a quick 30-minute train ride. Potsdam isan attractive historical city and its palaces are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.Both cities are culturally vibrant and offer an unparalleledquality of life, as well as affordable cost of living.
