LINGUIST List 21.1525

Tue Mar 30 2010

Jobs: Neurolinguistics: Researcher, New York University

Editor for this issue: Christy Bird <christylinguistlist.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.

Subject: Neurolinguistics: Researcher, New York University, USA
E-mail this message to a friend

University or Organization: New York University
Department: Linguistics & Psychology
Job Location: New York, USA
Web Address: http://www.psych.nyu.edu/meglab/
Job Rank: Researcher

Specialty Areas: Neurolinguistics


1. Lab Manager/RA
Full-time Lab Manager position at the NYU Neurolinguistics Laboratory, with
some responsibilities extending to the NYU Abu Dhabi Neuroscience of
Language Laboratory. BA/BS or MA/MS in a cognitive science-related
discipline (psychology, linguistics, etc.) or computer science is required.
The lab manager will be involved in all stages of execution and analysis of
MEG/EEG experiments on language processing. Previous experience with MEG or
some other cognitive neuroscience method is highly preferred. A background
in statistics and some programming ability (especially Matlab) are essential.

Preferred start date is July 2010, but this is negotiable. Salary and rank
will be commensurate with experience. To apply, please email CV and names
of references to Prof. Liina Pylkkänen (liina.pylkkanennyu.edu).

2. RA
Full-time NSF-funded research assistant for Cognitive Neuroscience of
Language projects at the KIT/NYU MEG Lab. BA/BS in cognitive
science-related discipline (psychology, linguistics, etc.) or computer
science. Programming and/or statistics experience a plus. RA would help
analyze data from MEG and joint MEG/fMRI experiments and help design and
program additional experiments. For 2010-11, research will concentrate on
lexical access and morphological decomposition in auditory and visual word

Preferred start date is July 2010, but this is negotiable. Salary and rank
will be commensurate with experience. To apply, please email CV and names
of references to Prof. Alec Marantz (marantznyu.edu).

3. Postdoctoral Position: Cognitive Neuroscientist
1-year, potentially renewable post-doctoral position in the cognitive
neuroscience of language for the NYU Abu Dhabi Neuroscience of Language
Laboratory. The researcher will have had experience with evoked response
experiments using either MEG or EEG, but preferably both. The main
responsibility of the researcher will be to explore the appropriate ways to
utilize participant populations of varied linguistic and educational
backgrounds to address questions about linguistic universals and
language-specific effects. Working with Arabic and East Asian speakers
requires nuanced understanding of the linguistic situation on the ground as
well as a search for necessary corpus resources and area experts on the
languages and language-particular psycholinguistics. A researcher with
cross-linguistic experimental experience would be ideal for the job, and
someone from either the Gulf area or India would be especially suited for
this project.

4. Postdoctoral Position: Computational Researcher
1-year, potentially renewable post-doctoral position in computational
research for the NYU Abu Dhabi Neuroscience of Language Laboratory.
The successful applicant will have had an extensive background in
quantitative analysis, statistics, and/or electrophysiological signal
processing. The researcher will be responsible for the laboratory's data
processing pipeline, from experimental design through final data analysis,
and will create and justify statistical tools for neurolinguistic
experiments with MEG/EEG data. Though the researcher is expected to work
with source localization packages such as MNE and BESA, he/she will be most
concerned with issues essentially statistical in nature, e.g. the
covariance of stimulus variables, the way to treat data across subjects,
the problem of multiple comparisons in whole-brain and whole-epoch
analyses, etc.

To apply for positions (3) or (4), please send CV and a brief statement of
research interests and goals to linguistics.neurolabnyu.edu.

Application Deadline: Open until filled.

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $65,000. This money will go to help 
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as 
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These 
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return 
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact 
your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match 
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your 
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the 
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple 
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without 
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company 
operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
