Editor for this issue: Christy Bird <christylinguistlist.org>

The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to engage in non-discriminatory hiring practices. We urge employers not to discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, 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.

Specialty Areas: Neurolinguistics


A 4-year, potentially renewable post-doctoral position in the cognitive
neuroscience of language is available for the NYU Abu Dhabi Neuroscience of
Language Laboratory starting in summer 2011. The researcher will be working
in the NYU Neuroscience of Language Lab under the direction of Dr. Alec
Marantz, Dr. Liina Pylkkanen, and Dr. David Poeppel. 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.

To apply, please send a copy of your CV and a brief statement of research
interests and goals to the application email address below.

Application Deadline: Open until filled.
