Jobs: Psycholinguistics: Phd Student, University of Oldenburg

Editor for this issue: Catherine Adams <catherinlinguistlist.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.

experiments with several populations, among other techniques also

One successful applicant of one of these positions will be responsible for
obtaining and analyzing language production data, the other successful
applicant will focus on language processing experiments. Both positions are
expected to lead to a Dissertation and PhD.

of CHILDES; knowledge of methods for statistical analysis.

Desired are research experience in one of the areas above, good knowledge
of (generative) syntax theories and experience with planning, running and
analyzing psycholinguistic experiments.

Special Qualification for both positions:
Since the positions entail close interdisciplinary cooperation, the
willingness and ability to integrate methods, concepts and issues of the
'other' discipline (i.e. audiology) into theories, concepts and methods
current in one's own are required for successful work in this project.
