MECORE: A cross-linguistic investigation of meaning-driven combinatorial restrictions in clausal embedding
MECORE is a research project on formal semantics, jointly funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).
The project will pursue an integrated approach to investigate the relation and interaction between semantic properties of clause-embedding predicates and their selectional properties, by combining cross-linguistic data-collection and experimental semantics with the development of unified theoretical analyses. Please see About for details of the project.
It will run concurrently in Edinburgh (co-Principal Investigator: Dr Wataru Uegaki + 1 Postdoctoral Researcher), Konstanz (co-Principal Investigator: Prof Maribel Romero + 1 Postdoctoral Researcher), and Amsterdam (Co-Investigator: Dr Floris Roelofsen).
We are looking for two postdoctoral researchers to join our team! Please see here for a post in Edinburgh, and here for a post in Konstanz. Applicants can apply to either position if they only want to be considered for that position, or to both if they want to be considered for both. (You can submit the same application materials to both.)
