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.

Postdoctoral Position in the Cognitive Neuroscience of Speech

The Department of Neurosurgery and the Department of Psychology at the
University of Iowa have an opening for one post-doctoral trainee beginning
after June 1, 2011 working on the cognitive neuroscience of speech
perception. The appointment will be for up to three years. We encourage
applicants with doctoral degrees in neuroscience, psychology, and cognitive
science, as well as linguistics and computer science and related fields.
The applicant will be jointly mentored by Dr. Bob McMurray of the
Department of Psychology and Dr. Hiroyuki Oya of the Department of
Neurosurgery and will spearhead a collaborative research project using
intracranial recording on awake, behaving humans to test theoretical models
of the sensory processes involved in speech perception. The trainee will
also have opportunities to pursue research on speech perception using ERP,
fMRI and/or eye-tracking. The ideal applicant will have a background in
theoretical models of speech perception, comfort using sophisticated
computational techniques for data analysis and/or modeling, and a
background in neuroscience. Applicant must be highly motivated and should
have skills in topics relevant to this field, skills like statistical
modeling of high-dimensional data, time series analysis, knowledge about
psycho- and physical acoustics, computational modeling, and
electrophysiological recording. However, strong applicants from other
backgrounds are also encouraged to apply. The applicant will be embedded in
a rich community studying language and speech perception at multiple
levels, with multiple scholars in Psychology, Neurosurgery and
Communication Sciences and Disorders. Please send a statement of interest,
a CV, and three letters of reference to the application email address
below. Applications will be considered immediately and will be reviewed
until the position is filled.

Application Deadline: Open until filled.
