University or Organization: University of Edinburgh
Department: Theoretical and Applied Linguistics
Job Rank: Post Doc
Specialty Areas: Syntax
Required Language: Hungarian


Postdoctoral Research Associate in Syntax (full-time, fixed term)
Salary Scale: ?19,460 - ?21,640 p.a. Grade ARIB
Vacancy Reference: 3003208

The School of Philosophy Psychology and Language Sciences (Theoretical
and Applied Linguistics) is seeking to hire a Research Associate to work on a one year ESRC funded project. The project requires the RA to create a
corpus of Hungarian sentences, translated into English, with relevance for
the study of information structure (topic/focus). The RA will also be involved in the initial analysis of the data and be engaged in writing
up and presenting the results of the research.

The successful applicant will have some knowledge of Hungarian and some
experience in describing syntactic data, ideally with an open-minded attitude to theoretical approaches to syntactic analysis. S/he will also have completed, or be about to complete, a PhD in theoretical syntax, semantics or pragmatics.

Principal duties:
The Research Associate will be responsible for
- Creating a database of Hungarian sentences illustrating the focus position with their closest English translations.
- Working with the Principal Investigators to provide theoretical
analyses of these data. (These analyses will be couched within the framework of Dynamic Syntax, but prior knowledge of that framework is not necessary.)
- Assessing the validity of existing analyses of these data and the theoretical claims made about them.

Applications may be made online or by post. For online applications,
please follow the application procedure at http://www.jobs.ed.ac.uk
