We are seeking an experienced postdoctoral researcher in the research project Chronologicum Hiber-nicum - A Probabilistic Chronological Framework for Dating Early Irish Language Developments and Literature (ChronHib), funded by a Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council and led by Professor David Stifter. ChronHib aims at making progress in establishing a finely-tuned chronology of Early Irish language developments and literature, by closely studying and mapping linguistic change and variation in the literature from the period.

Work is carried out primarily within the discipline of historical linguistics with a strong emphasis on digital humanities, but other aspects of linguistics such as syntactic theory, sociolinguistics, and the philology of Early Irish texts play a role as well.
