Jobs: Speech Perception, Psycholing: Research Assoc, Michigan State U

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.

Research Associate in Speech Perception and Spoken Word Recognition

Applications are invited for up to a three-year postdoctoral position in
the Department of Psychology at Michigan State University in speech
perception and spoken word recognition. The position is funded in part by
an NSF grant to study the contributions of speech prosody, including pitch,
loudness, speech rate and rhythm to understanding spoken words.

The postdoctoral researcher will be responsible for helping to plan and
conduct all aspects of the research, including speech perception and
production experiments and acoustic-phonetic analyses, as well as preparing
written and oral presentations of the research for journal publications and
conferences. Evidence of scholarly productivity in the form of journal
articles and/or conference presentations is essential. It is expected that
the successful candidate will communicate the research through
presentations and papers. Additional responsibilities will include
oversight of undergraduate and graduate students working on the project.

Applicants for the position should have a track record of published
research commensurate with their experience in an area that overlaps with
the projects aims, such as auditory perception, speech perception, speech
production, or acoustics commensurate with their experience. Relevant areas
for the Ph.D. include, but are not limited to, Psychology, Speech and
Hearing Science, Linguistics, Neuroscience and/or Cognitive Science. The
successful candidate will have excellent organization and communication
skills and strong personal motivation. Background and experience with
acoustic analysis of speech segments and/or speech prosody, computer
programming skills, and/or music performance and/or theory are desired.
English language proficiency required.

The researcher will have the opportunity to work with individuals across a
variety of departments affiliated with the MSU Cognitive Science Program,
including Psychology, Linguistics, and Communicative Sciences and
Disorders, in a welcoming, active, and interdisciplinary research
environment. The salary is $40K per year with an anticipated starting date
of August 15, 2010. Contract will initially be for one year with
possibility of renewal up to two additional years. To apply, please send
the following information to Dr. Laura Dilley (ldilleymsu.edu): (1) a
current CV, (2) statement of research interests and career goals, (3) three
letters of recommendation, and (4) three representative publications and/or
