FYI: Psycholinguistics Postdoc Fellowship for Italians
Psycholinguistics Postdoctoral Fellowship
The Marica De Vincenzi Foundation is inviting applications for a 1-year fellowship for Italian students to pursue post-doctoral study in a foreign institution of the applicant's choice, i.e., outside Italy. Applications should be received at the University of Trento by 12:00am on Jan 31st, 2012. University rules call for submission of hard-copy and electronic copies of materials. Please allow sufficient time for the snail mail aspect of this process.
Application requirements include a CV, a brief dissertation summary, samples of publications, and a 4-page description of a research plan, plus a support letter from the proposed host institution.
Full details for the application, in Italian and in English, including the call for applications and the application form, can be found at http://www.unitn.it/discof/9465/assegni-di-ricerca
In the evaluation of applications, the scholarly strength of the candidate, as well as the feasibility of the proposed research and its impact upon the applicant's career and potential for future impact on psycholinguistics in Italy, will be considered. Applicants who plan to remain in their current institution should provide justification, and in cases of projects that require more than one year it is helpful to provide information on possible sources of funding beyond the initial year.
