Jobs: Psycholinguistics; Phonetics: Post Doc, Max Planck Institute

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.

Postdoctoral staff position in the field of spoken-language comprehension

The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics is offering a postdoctoral
staff position in the field of spoken-language comprehension. The position
is a research position and involves no teaching responsibilities.

The successful candidate will join the Adaptive Listening Group at the Max
Planck Institute. The Adaptive Listening Group is an independent research
group under the direction of Dr. Andrea Weber and investigates the
processing of foreign-accented speech. A research topic concerning the
processing of variation in speech or experiential influences on perception
is currently of most interest to the group, but other topics that fall in
the scope of the group are possible as well. The successful candidate is
expected to develop, in collaboration with other members of the group, a
line of research that complements our current research program. More
information about our research can be found at

We are looking for an experimental scientist with a background in
psycholinguistics or phonetics who is interested in undertaking research in
any of the above areas. An ability to work collaboratively in an
interdisciplinary team is a plus, and an important criterion is a
demonstrated ability to publish research findings. Young scientists with a
completed PhD in the field of experimental psychology and/or
psycholinguistics are encouraged to apply.

The position is available from May 2010 and has a term of appointment of 3
years. We would prefer the successful candidate to begin this spring,
rather than later in the year. Applications should include a c.v., the
names of two referees who would be willing to write letters of
recommendation, and a cover letter describing research interests and
research plans; examples of published work would also be helpful.
Applications should arrive at the secretariat by 20 February 2010.
