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.

Description:

Postdoctoral Position
Center for Language Science
Penn State University

The Center for Language Science at the Pennsylvania State University
invites applications for an anticipated postdoctoral position associated
with a new NSF training program, Partnerships for International Research
and Education (PIRE): Bilingualism, mind, and brain: An interdisciplinary
program in cognitive psychology, linguistics, and cognitive neuroscience.
The program seeks to provide training in research on bilingualism that will
include an international perspective and that will take advantage of
opportunities for collaborative research conducted with one of our
international partner sites in the UK (Bangor, Wales), Germany (Leipzig),
Spain (Granada and Barcelona), The Netherlands (Nijmegen), and China (Hong
Kong and Beijing) and in conjunction with our two domestic partner sites at
Haskins Labs (Yale) and the VL2 Science of Learning Center at Gallaudet
University.

The successful candidate will benefit from a highly interactive group of
faculty whose interests include language processing, language acquisition
in children and adults, and language contact. Applicants with an interest
in extending their expertise within experimental psycholinguistics,
cognitive neuroscience, or linguistic field research are particularly
welcome to apply. There is no expectation that applicants will have had
prior experience in research on bilingualism. The time that a candidate
will spend abroad will be determined by the nature of their research
project and by ongoing collaborative arrangements between Penn State and
the partner sites.

Questions about faculty research interests may be directed to relevant core
training faculty: Psychology: Judith Kroll, Ping Li, Janet van Hell, and
Dan Weiss; Spanish: Giuli Dussias, Chip Gerfen, and John Lipski; German:
Richard Page and Carrie Jackson. Administrative questions can be directed
to the Director of the Center for Language Science, Judith Kroll:
jfk7psu.edu or to the Chair of the search committee, Janet van Hell:
jgv3psu.edu. More information about the Center for Language Science (CLS)
and faculty research programs can be found at http://www.cls.psu.edu.

The initial appointment will be for one year, with the possibility of
renewal for the next year. Salary and benefits are set by NSF guidelines.
Provisions of the NSF training program limit funding to US citizens and
permanent residents.

Applicants should send a CV, several reprints or preprints, and a statement
of research interests. This statement should indicate two or more core PIRE
faculty members as likely primary and secondary mentors and should describe
the candidate's goals for research and training during a postdoctoral
position, including directions in which the candidate would like to expand
his/her theoretical and methodological expertise in the language sciences
and ways in which the opportunity to conduct research abroad with different
bilingual populations would enhance those goals. Applicants should also
provide names of three references and arrange for letters of recommendation
to be sent separately.

Application materials should be sent electronically to
pirepostdocgmail.com. For fullest consideration, all materials should be
received by February 1, 2011. Decisions will be made by March 2011. The
appointment can begin any time between May 15 and August 15, 2011. We
encourage applications from individuals of diverse backgrounds. Penn State
is committed to affirmative action, equal opportunity and the diversity of
its workforce.
