postdoctoral position (E 13 TV-L, 100\%)
in the junior research group “The language dynamics of the ancient Central Andes”. The position will be available from February 1st 2019 and run for 30 months.

Applicants must hold a PhD in linguistics or a related field when taking up the position and already have extensive experience with Aymaran and/or other major Andean languages, ideally covering also the relationship between the languages and societies. Particularly strong applicants will also already have a track record of publications in international journals. A background in the anthropology of the Americas is also highly desirable, as is experience with fieldwork and working in a research group. Applicants should have excellent social skills.
Applications should include a letter of motivation, a CV with a list of publications that demonstrate relevant experience as described above, and a sample of academic work.

The University seeks to raise the number of women in research and teaching and therefore urges qualified women academics to apply for these positions. Equally qualified applicants with disabilities will be given preference. The employment will be carried out by the central administration of the University of Tübingen.
