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/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Description:

UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD
PHONETICS LABORATORY

Research Associate (RS1A: salary range £19,460-29,128 p.a..)

A Research Associate is required to work on an interdisciplinary project
studying human speech.

The project involves noninvasive experiments on human subjects, acoustic
measurements, MRI imaging, signal processing, data analysis and the
construction of mathematical models of articulatory motion. We seek
applicants with experience relevant to one or more of these areas.
Applicants should have completed the requirements for a doctoral degree by
the start date.

The project will build mathematical models of the motor control strategies
used in speech. It will test whether one can explain articulator motions
on the basis of phonological features. In the process, it will study
coarticulation (how one sound in speech influences its neighbours) and
develop methodologies for MRI imaging of tongue and velum motions during
speech.

The principal duties of the post holder will be:

i) Recruiting and managing subjects, ii) participating in experimental
design and construction, iii) data collection, documentation and
management, and iv) participating in the data analysis. The post holder
will be expected to contribute to scientific publications.

The appointment will be for 26 months, with an anticipated start date of 1
October 2005. It will be on the RS1A salary scale, with salary dependent
on skills and experience.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to either Greg Kochanski
(greg.kochanskiphon.ox.ac.uk) or John Coleman
(john.colemanphon.ox.ac.uk).
