Apply for LDS


Connecting knowledge and experience would not work without connecting people and perspectives. We are always interested in connections with other scientists and researchers who have ideas or want to be a part of ours.

Also we are of course available for questions from students - usually, the right person to contact is the one teaching a class you’re in or interested in. If you are looking for more general information, you can contact us.

Study Linguistic Data Science

Our two-year Master's program Linguistic Data Science starts this winter semester. Those who want to connect a background of linguistics and for example computational linguistics or data science are welcome to do so in our programm and courses.

Research is the beating heart of LDSL where new possibilities can develop through the connection of subjects and their perspectives.

To get an impression, take a look at past and present projects, resources published by the Lab and its members and, of course, publications.



To connect subjects and contents you also have to connect people. We regularly take part in events and also bring colleagues together at RUB.

When LDSL invites, this is where you can find information on current events. Of course you can also look up older events (some related to research projects).
