Description:
		 
The Center for Language Acquisition offers a Ph.D.-stipend for
appointment October 1st, 2004, at the Institute of Language and
Communication, University of Southern Denmark, Odense.

The Ph.D.-stipend is advertised in affiliation with the project ''The
interaction between segmentation strategies and mental representations
of language sounds and language production in normal and hearing
impaired populations'' ("sammenh�ngen mellem segmenteringsstrategier
og mentale repr�sentationer af sproglyde og sprogproduktion i normale
og h�reh�mmede populationer"), financed by Widex A/S and University of
Southern Denmark. The aim of the project is to investigate the
relations between segmentation strategies and mental representations
of language sounds in both normal and hearing impaired
populations. The Ph.D.-stipend will comprise experimental
investigation of the acquisition of language sounds in normally
hearing and hearing impaired children in the age-span of 0 to 6
months.

The selected applicant will take part in the research milieu at the
Center for Language Acquisition as well as in the established
Ph.D.-network at the Institute of Language and Communication.

Relevant educational prerequisites could be e.g. psychology
(preferably developmental or cognitive), psycho-linguistics or
language psychology, phonetics, "lab-phonology" or
audiologopaedics. Experience with working experimentally is an
advantage.

The job does not necessarily require basic Danish language skills
prior to employment, which opens the position up for foreign
applicants with relevant background and research interests, and
everyone is therefore invited to apply.

A specific project description will be drawn up within the first part
of the stipend-period. Applicants can obtain further information
concerning the project as well as the stipend by contacting
project-director, Center-director Dorthe Bleses: email:
bleseslanguage.sdu.dk, tel: +45 6550 3346.

Engagement as a Ph.D. Research Fellow is for three years. Employment
stops automatically at the end of the period. The holder of the
stipend is not allowed to have other paid employment during the
three-year period.

The successful applicant will be employed in accordance with the
agreement of 26 May 2000 on salaried Ph.D. fellows between the
Ministry of Finance and AC (the Danish Confederation of Professional
Associations).

The University encourages all interested persons to apply, regardless
of age, gender, religious affiliation or ethnic background. Please
send 4 copies of the application, marked "Position No. 046013", and
appendices, including publications on which the applicant wishes to
rely, to
