Tenure Track and Junior PI Positions

LiI created three tenure track and one Junior PI position. These positions offer a special opportunity for the very best young, creative and talented researchers from outside the research consortium to establish an independent research group financed by start-up funding for four years providing resources for the candidate itself, a PhD candidate, materials and consumables. In case the candidate fulfils the predefined criteria after the initial four years, he/she will be offered a tenured position guaranteed by  the embedding partner institution and financed by matching, structural funding. As such, these positions promote development of researchers with high potential  and long-term embedding of innovative language research into our partner institutions.
These positions are  targeting very divergent fields of work, namely:
