2 PhD positions in (German) Linguistics/Research on Social Interaction at the University of Lausanne.
As part of the project "Deixis and Joint Attention: Vision in Interaction" (DeJA-VI) financed by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) for four years (48 months), we seek applicants for
2 PhD positions (100%)
which are fully funded according to the SNSF guidelines.
The project investigates the use of speech (deixis), gaze and gesture to accomplish joint attention in human interaction. Methodologically situated within the framework of multimodal conversation and interaction analysis, the project takes eye tracking technology out of the lab to record naturally occurring social interaction. The project is led by Prof. Dr. Anja Stukenbrock (University of Lausanne, Department of German Linguistics) and comprises four subprojects. Successful applicants will work on one of the projects in close collaboration with the team and accomplish a PhD dissertation. The project offers excellent technological working conditions, international contacts and a stimulating interdisciplinary environment.
Applicants are required to have a Master's degree in Linguistics (preferably German Linguistics) or related areas, a high proficiency in German and a particular interest in multimodality. Preferably, they have some experience with the recording and analysis of linguistic and/or video data and are highly motivated to acquire the skills to work with mobile eye tracking devices.
Please send your complete application (letter of motivation, curriculum vitae, copies of transcripts, contact details for 2 referees, an electronic copy of your master's thesis) in German or in English in a single pdf-file to Prof. Dr. Anja Stukenbrock (firstname.lastname@example.org). Further enquiries may also be addressed to email@example.com.
