De Vincenzi Psycholinguistics Postdoctoral Fellowship 2010-2011

The De Vincenzi Foundation announces a 1-year fellowship, $33,000 plus
economy air fare, for Italian students to pursue post-doctoral study
preferably in the US or in another country (Italy excluded), beginning
September 1, 2010. The fellowship is for study and research in the area of
grammatically-oriented psycholinguistics at an institution of the
applicant's choice. Applications should be received by February 28, 2010
and it is expected that a decision will be announced by April 14, 2010.

Applications should be submitted electronically, in English, and should

1. CV, including evidence of competence in spoken English.
2. A four-page statement of purpose describing the proposed plan of
3. Papers, reports, PhD dissertation written in English or Italian by the
candidate. If the dissertation was written in Italian, the candidate should
provide a 12 page summary maximum (shorter encouraged) written in English.
4. The name and contact information for a sponsor at the University or
research centre chosen, accompanied by a letter of agreement from the
sponsor indicating the individual's willingness to serve as a sponsor if
the fellowship is awarded.

Candidates should arrange for three referees to submit confidential letters
of reference via email to borsedistudiofondazionedevincenzi.org. Please
write in the subject line: F2010. In case the candidate does not hold the
PhD at the deadline of submission of the application, the faculty advisor
should send a statement of assurance that the PhD will be completed by July
31st, 2010.

Applications should be submitted to: borsedistudiofondazionedevincenzi.org.
Receipt of all submitted material will be acknowledged by email.

The De Vincenzi Foundation was established in the will of the late Italian
psycholinguist Marica De Vincenzi for the support of young Italian scholars
who intend to carry out research abroad in the domain of
grammatically-oriented psycholinguistics preferably at US institutions (but
other countries, except for Italy, are eligible) and preferably to do
research on questions concerning sentence or discourse level processing.
The primary criteria used in evaluating fellowship applications are the
impact on the applicant's career development and on psycholinguistics in
Italy more broadly. Applications will be judged based on candidates' past
record and future potential, the suitability of the host lab, and the
feasibility and impact of the proposed research, including (where
appropriate) plans for applying for postdoctoral funding beyond the initial
fellowship year.

The scientific committee includes Lyn Frazier as president, Maria Teresa
Guasti as vice-president, Janet Dean Fodor, Colin Phillips, Luigi Rizzi,
and Sandro Zucchi. Head of the administrative board is Remo Job.
