POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH SCIENTIST
(FULL TIME)

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

The Centre for Developmental Language Disorders and Cognitive
Neuroscience has a further opening for a full time postdoctoral
research scientist from June, 2002. An opportunity exists for this
position to lead to a lectureship in the Department.

The successful applicant 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 work explores
theoretical issues related to the current controversy surrounding the
development and organisation of specialised cognitive functions by
investigating typically and atypically developing children and
teenagers. The exact nature of the experiments will partly depend on
the research expertise of the successful applicant; but will involve
psycholinguistic investigations of sentence processing which aim to
complement high-density ERP recordings at the Centre to elucidate the
development of specialised cognitive functions, such as grammar, the
relations between grammar and semantics and non-linguistic cognitive
abilities, and generally, the underlying nature of SLI. Closing date:
Until position is filled. 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. Full details are
