INF: User-oriented research infrastructure assisting linguistic data collection and (re-)use

PIs: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hendrik Buschmeier/ Dr. Annett Jorschick/ Prof. Dr. LL.M. oec. Paul T. Schrader

The aim of the INF project is to establish an infrastructure consisting of two components. The first is a "wizard" that will assist researchers during the data collection planning phase, automatically generating customised, legally compliant consent forms for participants based on the specific requirements of the research endeavour. The second is a data management platform, where collected (meta) data will be imported. Within the platform, data are linked with each participant's specific consent forms, allowing researchers to view the extent of a participant’s consent.

Open Positions:

  • Post-doc position 1 (100%) Profile: The ideal candidate has a PhD in psycholinguistics, linguistics, psychology or a related field, with broad working knowledge of empirical methods and applied statistics, as well as data management.
    Official announcement: (English / German)
  • PhD position 2 (100%) Profile: The ideal candidate has a Master's degree in computer science, computational linguistics, business informatics, data science or a related field. A research interest in open science, data management practices and knowledge of databases, ontologies, domain-specific languages and platform development is an advantage.
  • PhD position 3 (65%) Profile: The ideal candidate has a university degree in German law (1. Staatsexamen
    with 7.5 points), a discernible interest in problems of data protection in the context of scientific research, and is ready to collaborate in an interdisciplinary team.

Ö: Public relations project

PIs: Prof. Dr. Oliver Bott/ Prof. Dr. Barbara Job/ Dr. Petra Pansegrau

The public relations project Ö will serve as a communication hub for the CRC Linguistic Creativity in Communication. The project’s tasks go well beyond common public relations work in a CRC due to the general public’s substantial involvement in the planned research program via citizen science activities and the planned research on science communication itself. We aim to actively involve interested citizens in the design, implementation, evaluation and results assessment of our projects through various participation formats. Citizens participating in the CRC’s research will thus gain insights into linguistic research and theorizing.  All these activities will be carefully designed, implemented and scientifically monitored.

Open Positions:

  • PostDoc position 1 (100%) Profile: The successful candidate should hold a PhD in science communication, science studies or related fields. A PhD that was completed in another discipline but has a clear focus on science communication is also possible. He/she has experience in the conception, coordination and scientific evaluation of projects developed in and for science communication, citizen science projects (preferably within the humanities), implementation of projects for and in the public sphere, professional experience in communications, ideally in university communications; relevant professional cross-media expertise. Experience with website relaunches is an advantage; strong conceptual and strategic skills; A research focus on linguistics would be welcome.
    Official announcement: (English / German)
  • PhD position 2 (100%) Profile: The successful candidate should have a Master’s degree in computer science or computational linguistics, and a good background in web-based psycholinguistic research. Good programming skills (Python, Javascript, and possibly other programming languages) but also experience with administration of webservers for online experimentation are a prerequisite.  Experience with jsPsych, Pushkin and Drupal are an asset. Furthermore, a background in statistics as well as semantics and pragmatics is expected.  A good command of German is a prerequisite. The successful candidate is expected to have good communication skills for instructing other CRC members on the developed system in regular meetings.
  • PhD position 3 (65%) Profile: The successful candidate should have a relevant Master’s degree (e.g. linguistics with a focus on analysing natural conversations; interaction linguistics; sociolinguistics; communication and media studies); a research focus in scientific communication, excellent German language skills, good command of English, familiarity with recording techniques, transcription systems (preferably GAT2) and processing tools (preferably EXMARAalDA) for natural conversations, solid knowledge of qualitative methods, excellent communication skills.

RTG: Integrated research training group

PIs: Prof. Dr. Julia Settinieri

The proposed CRC is committed to high-quality education for doctoral researchers and postdocs, and will provide early career researchers with an environment that allows them to fully develop their potential and thus contribute to the overall research goals of the initiative. The measures applied within project RTG focus on research subjects and methods, but also research ethics, career planning, citizen science and sustainable research data management and range from introductory events, summer schools, writing retreats and workshops to mentoring and social activities fostering interdisciplinarity and international exchange.

Open Position:

Postdoc (50%) [100% in combination with the position in project Z]

Tasks: Organisation, coordination and evaluation of the activities of the SFB Graduate School: lectures, workshops, summer schools, scholarships
