The Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1412 'Register: Language Users' Knowledge of Situational-Functional Variation' is a joint research project of the Humboldt-University Berlin (HU) and the Leibniz-Centre General Linguistics (ZAS). Currently 15 sub-projects at the Humboldt-University of Berlin and the ZAS investigate intra-speaker variation driven by situational and functional factors at all levels of language, and focusing on the language user's register knowledge and its relation to other types of linguistic knowledge. Within the Integrated Graduate School, we offer up to four FELLOWSHIPS for Postgraduate Researchers who want to pursue or are already pursuing a Ph.D. relating to the research program of the CRC, or want to explore topics relating to the CRC within their Ph.D. research.
Fifteen early-stage researchers (ESRs) will be recruited as PhD students in the framework of the Conversational Brains Network (COBRA). Each selected ESR will be offered a three-year contract starting from September/October 2020. ZAS and Humboldt Universität zu Berlin offers a PhD Fellowship in the proposed project ESR5: Communicative alignment at the physiological level.
