Prof. Sabine Schulte im Walde [1] invites applications for a 3-year PhD position at the University of Stuttgart in the context of the research project "SemChangeMWE" [2]. The position is funded by the DFG (the German Research Foundation).

SemChangeMWE goes beyond a synchronic concept of multiword expression (MWE) meaning and provides a novel perspective on MWE emergence, MWE meaning changes and MWE compositionality by computationally modelling their diachronic properties and changes of properties. The project brings together our expertises in (a) computational representations and models of MWE compositionality and meaning analogy, (b) computational models of diachronic meaning changes and meaning divergences in language variation, and (c) datasets of meaning components and meaning relatedness, in order to address the lack of empirical large-scale approaches towards a diachronic perspective on MWE meaning.

The successful candidate has a Master's degree in computational linguistics or computer science and has prior experience in lexical semantics models. Furthermore, the candidate will provide strong programming skills, expertise in machine-learning approaches and is eager to work across languages.

The position is affiliated with the Institute for Natural Language Processing (IMS), a scientifically inspiring and at the same time socially pleasant environment for high-quality academic research and interdisciplinary collaborations [3].

The *application deadline* for the post is *20 March 2022*. Applications should include a brief motivation letter with research interests and vision, a CV, a list of publications and teaching and supervision experience, and up to three names of references. Applications should be sent to Sabine Schulte im Walde by email. Interviews will be scheduled for mid-April.

The University of Stuttgart aims to achieve equal opportunities for men and women in university studies and science and to increase the number of women in academia [4]. Therefore, women are particularly encouraged to apply. Applications of severely disabled candidates with equivalent qualifications will be given priority.

The *starting date* of the post is *1 July 2022* or soon thereafter, for a total of three years. Salary is according to 67% on the German scale TV-L 13.

For questions and applications please email to schulte at ims.uni-stuttgart.de.

Best regards Sabine Schulte im Walde
