Editor for this issue: Vanessa Manion <vanessalinguistlist.org>


The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards. Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page http://linguistlist.org/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Applications are invited from individuals wishing to undertake postdoctoral
research on Language and Brain in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, with a special
focus on computational modelling and cognitive brain research in the area
of bilingual word recognition. One aim will be to develop a functional
model of bilingual word recognition that accounts for both empirical and
brain data; a second aim is to collect brain data and empirical data to
simulate. The successful applicant will work within the NICI research
institute at the Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
(http://www.nici.ru.nl). Applicants should be nationals of a Member State
of the European Community other than the Netherlands or have resided in the
Community for the last five years. Specialist training will be offered and
researchers may expect to spend time with research teams in other countries
(UK, France) in the laboratories that are part of the RTN:LAB (see NICI
webpage for details). In line with EC objectives, we strongly encourage
applications from women.

Qualifications:
- A postgraduate degree in Cognitive Science, Cognitive Neuroscience,
Computer Science, Psychology, or a related discipline. (Essential)
- A relevant Ph.D. (Desirable)

Experience:
At least 4 years of research experience in Cognitive Psychology or
Cognitive Neuroscience since obtaining the first degree (but no more than
10 years). The research experience may include having obtained a relevant
Ph.D. (Desirable). Modelling and programming skills (Essential).
Experimental skills (Essential). Recording of Event-Related brain
Potentials (ERPs) (Desirable).

Skills/Abilities/Competences:
- Very good communication skills, both written and oral (in English)
- Publications in cognitive psychology or cognitive neuroscience journals

neuroscience (Essential)
- Ability to work both independently and collaboratively (Essential)

Main Duties and Responsibilities:
The ER will be responsible for completing all phases of the research
project (e.g., designing, planning, and implementing simulation studies and
experiments, processing and analysing data, and writing reports) under the
supervision of the grant holder, Dr. Ton Dijkstra. The ER may also be asked
to contribute to the preparation of publications, conference presentations,
and grant applications. The ER is expected to contribute to the design and
planning of a range of simulation studies and neuropsychological
language-based experiments, some of them including Event-Related
Potentials. The ER is expected to assist, in close collaboration with
experts from the F.C. Donders Institute (Nijmegen), in the analysis of the
obtained electrophysiological data. The ER is further expected to attend
meetings, workshops, and seminars held by RTN:LAB.
