Research assistant wanted in project C06 of SFB 1287!

We are looking for a research or student assistant (8-9 hours / week) for the research project “Grammatical Processing and Syntactic Change” at the University of Potsdam for an initial period of 12 months (extension possible) as soon as possible.

This project investigates the influence of processing-related factors on language change with a special focus on the positioning of different constituents in the German sentence. We conduct various psycholinguistic studies (acceptability judgments, production studies, reading time experiments) to analyze the word order preferences of these speakers.
