Oferta compartida por Nuria

The Department of Biology at the University of Crete seeks a Post- doctoral researcher to perform phylogenetic and statistical research in language evolution in the context of the H.F.R.I. funded interdisciplinary project “Modeling Glossogeny. Using biological tools in the study of genetic and areal stability of morpho- syntactic parameters” (PI: Elena Anagnostopoulou).

The post- doctoral researcher will analyze linguistic data in collaboration with the PI and the members of the research team of the project (Drs. Manolis Ladoukakis and Dimitris Michelioudakis). The analysis involves the use of phylogenetic and statistical tools adjusted to historical linguistic research. Candidates must have earned their Ph.D. degree recognized by D.O.A.T.A.P. (Hellenic NARIC; for the application it is sufficient for candidates to have proof that the process for the recognition has officially started via the registration/protocol number) and have specialized in Linguistics or Population Genetics or Phylogenetics.

Qualified linguistics candidates should possess:
  • Expertise in theoretical linguistics in the areas of parametric syntax and morphology
  • Experience in working with and analyzing typological and/or historical data
  • Preferred qualifications include familiarity with computational and statistical methods in linguistics and/or computational phylogenetics in historical linguistics
Qualified biology candidates should possess:
  • Experience in working with and analyzing phylogenetic data and/or population genetics data
  • Experience in statistical methods in biology
