We are currently looking for an additional psycholinguist to add to our
teaching and research team. Applicants should have, or be prepared to
develop, an interest in language processing in bilinguals and/or second

as initiating their own research projects, the post-holder will be
expected to assist in teaching on the MPhil, particularly in
psycholinguistics and research methods.

Applicants should have a good first degree in psychology with a PhD in a
relevant discipline.

The salary will be between �16,775 and �30,967 depending on age and
experience. The appointment will be for three years in the first
instance, with the possibility of renewal. The preferred starting date
is January 2001.
