Subject: PhD position, MPI for Psycholinguistics

The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics offers a scholarship
for research leading towards a PhD in the field of spoken-language

The successful candidate will develop a dissertation project within
the ongoing research themes of the Comprehension Group. The
Institute's website, especially the most recent Annual Reports, can
provide more information about the group's research, currently centred
around the two institute projects "Phonological Learning for Speech
Perception" and "Decoding Continuous Speech" (in previous years'
reports see the projects "Phonological Structure in Comprehension" and
"Spoken Word Recognition"). The research may involve language
comprehension by adult or infant subjects; it will certainly involve
laboratory experimentation, and candidates should have native or
near-native competence in German or Dutch. There is scope for
cross-linguistic comparisons, or for computational modelling.
Candidates with a background in experimental psycholinguistics or
experimental phonetics may receive preference.
