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:

Postdoc on L2 acquisition and L1 attrition of Dutch and German (0,75 fte)

The postdoc position is part of the NWO-funded Vici research project 'The age
effect in bilingual development: grammatical gender in second language
acquisition and first language attrition', awarded to Dr Monika S. Schmid
(http://www.rug.nl/staff/m.s.schmid/research). The program examines to what
extent second language learners can attain fully native-like representations of
grammatical gender, and what the role of their own language background and the
age at which they started acquiring the L2 is in this respect. In order to shed
more light on this question, migrants who have lived in an environment where a
non-gender language is spoken are also investigated. The project will employ
neurocognitive experimental techniques (ERPs and eyetracking) as well as more
traditional behavioral measures (grammaticality judgments and free speech).

Additional information as well as a complete description of the project and the
PhD/Postdoc subprojects can be obtained from the principal investigator or
secretary CLGC.

Requirements:
- PhD degree in (Neuro-/Psycho-/Applied/General) Linguistics or a related field
- In-depth knowledge of theoretical approaches to second language acquisition
- Native or near-native speaker of Dutch or German and excellent command of
English
- Ability to work in a research team
- Ability or willingness to learn to apply experimental methods is an advantage
