Jobs: Psycholinguistics: PhD or Post Doc, Utrecht 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.

PhD/post doc project in psycholinguistics, (vacancy no 681017) starting
date 1-10-2010 (negotiable, post doc between 1 Oct 2010 and 1 Feb 2011):

The project, supervised by Dr. Yoad Winter, develops and runs
psycholinguistic experiments that check the effects of typicality on the
interpretation of logical expressions. 'Relational' concepts (e.g. 'see',
'touch') show complex typicality effects that interact with logical
meanings. Three questions are addressed:
- How can typicality effects with relational concepts be tested?
- How can their effects on logical meanings be tested?
- In what way are these effects similar to the interpretation of
modification constructions like 'red hair'?
The project uses standard methods from experimental psycholinguistics, and
is informed by recent development in formal semantic theory.

For a more detailed project description:
Applicants for a post doc employment hold a PhD (completed at least one
month prior to employment), as well as demonstrated capacities as an
independent researcher, in the form of publications. You have a PhD in
experimental psycholinguistics.
