 Preliminary Announcement
Please bring this to the attention of any potential applicants


Department of Linguistics/Department of Psychology

Pending final approval, applications are invited for a Research
position (Postdoc) in a psycho-linguistic project investigating the
modular nature of the language system, using advanced techniques
determining the nature and localization of cerebral activities.
The project, entitled "Conceptual Structure and Computation" will
commence on September 1, 1991, and has a duration of 4 years.

Brief description:
 Within the human language system conceptual and formal
 (computational) subsystems can be distinguished. The nature of and
 differences between these subsystems will be investigated in
 connection with differences in the nature and localization of the
 associated cerebral activities.
 Cerebral activities will be measured by registration of event
 related potentials, determination of neuro-magnetic activity, and
 by positron emission tomography, during experimental tasks
 differentiating as to the type of subsystem involved.

The project will resort under the Faculty of Letters, Department of
Linguistics. The experiments wil be carried out at the Departments of
Experimental Psychology and the Groningen PET Scanning Center.
The project will require expertise both in formal linguistics and in
experimental psychology. We are looking for applicants with excellent
research qualifications, who have a PhD in formal linguistics, research
experience in psycholinguistics, and are able to further develop the
necessary skills in the latter field. The person to be appointed should
consider it a challenge to bridge the gap between these disciplines,
and be willing to play an active role in the further development of
experimental linguistics at Groningen University.

It may be expected that the appointment will be made in scale 10 of the
BBRA (the Rules and Regulations for University staff in the
Netherlands, approx. Dfl. 54000-63000, depending on experience).
Please send applications, including curriculum vitae and the names and
addresses of three referees, to
