The Department of Linguistics is a sub-unit of the Faculty of Philological and Cultural Studies, consisting of four chairs (Applied Linguistics, General Linguistics, Historical Linguistics, Language Teaching and Learning Research). The announced post doc position will be the area of Applied Linguistics.

Applied Linguistics deals with language in social context and practice. In the context of the Viennese Institute, the discipline primarily covers sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, text and media research (the main foci of the chair) as well as conversation analysis, institutional communication, multilingualism, language policy and pragmatics. Applied Linguistics is conceived as an empirically driven, theory-building discipline which is also participating and taking stand in public discourse on linguistic matters. In the context of the Department of Linguistics, Applied Linguistics is furthermore committed to the common institutional goal of exploring language in a comprehensive sense (as a system, competence and social practice).
