We are seeking a half-time research assistant in the research project Chronologicum Hibernicum - 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. We expect to make a significant contribution to the description and the understanding of the development of the Early Irish language. Work is carried out primarily within the discipline of historical linguistics, but other aspects of linguistics such as syntactic theory, sociolinguistics, and the philology of Early Irish texts play a role as well.

The position of the research assistant will mostly involve maintaining, improving and making publicly available the existing project databases, as well as contributing to the project deliverables.
