POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH SCIENTIST
(FULL TIME)

Centre for Developmental Language Disorders
and Cognitive Neuroscience,
Department of Human Communication Science

A full time postdoctoral research scientist position is available from
February, 2001 at the new Centre for Developmental Language Disorders
and Cognitive Neuroscience.

The post holder will be asked to lead a component of an overall
research programme funded by the Wellcome Trust on the cognitive
function and structure of sentence processing in children with SLI and
children developing normally. The exact nature of the experiments will
partly depend on the research expertise of the successful applicant;
it could involve high-density ERP recordings, and/or psycholinguistic
investigations of sentence processing to elucidate the development of
specialised cognitive functions, such as grammar/the relations between
grammar and semantics and, generally, the underlying nature of
SLI. The ERP investigations will be carried out in collaboration with
Profs Angela Frederici (MPI for Cognitive Neuroscience, Leipzig), Mark
Johnson, and Gergely Csibra (Centre for Brain and Cognitive
Development, Birkbeck College) in whose centres training and support
will be provided.

Closing date: 12th October, 2001. Interviews October/November.
Informal inquiries: Prof. Heather van der Lely
(h.vanderlelyucl.ac.uk). Please send CV, names and addresses of two
referees and samples of published work (e.g., 1-2 papers) to:

Centre for Developmental Language Disorders and Cognitive Neuroscience,
Dept of Human Communication Science,
UCL,
Chandler House, 2 Wakefield Street,
London, WC1N 1PF, UK.
