Jobs: Interdisciplinary: Post Doc, University of Rochester

Editor for this issue: Svetlana Aksenova <svetlanalinguistlist.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 at 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:

The Center for Language Sciences at the University of Rochester seeks one
or more outstanding postdoctoral fellows for a NIH-funded training grant.
The Center brings together faculty and students with interests in spoken
and signed languages from the Departments of Brain and Cognitive Sciences,
Computer Science, Linguistics, and Philosophy, as well as the
interdepartmental program in Neuroscience. We encourage applicants from any
of these disciplines who have expertise in any area of natural language.

The training faculty has combined expertise in formal, behavioral,
computational and brain-imaging approaches to understanding the structure,
processing and acquisition of natural language. We are particularly
interested in postdoctoral fellows who want to contribute to an
interdisciplinary community. NIH fellowships are open only to US citizens
or permanent residents.

Applicants should send a letter via email describing their graduate
training and research interests and a curriculum vitae to
runnerling.rochester.edu, and arrange to have three letters of reference
sent to the address below. Review of applications will begin on February 15
and continue until the positions are filled. Appointees must have
successfully defended their dissertation prior to being appointed. We
strongly encourage applications from women and members of under-represented
minorities.

This year, in addition to the areas mentioned above, we welcome applicants
whose research interests include using experimental techniques such as
eye-tracking to investigate the formal syntactic and semantic properties of
language structure and how they interact with or affect language processing.

Though we will not be conducting interviews at the 2007 LSA meeting, Jeff
Runner will be present and can answer any questions potential applicants
may have.
