Second Language Acquisition
The Department of Linguistics at the University of Kansas invites applications
for a MA/PhD level Research Assistant beginning August 2012 for a project on
neurolinguistics and second language acquisition.
The RA will participate in a project funded by the National Science Foundation
that investigates the processing of gender and number agreement by
English-speaking learners of Spanish using event-related potentials. The project
includes both cross-sectional and longitudinal studies and examines a range of
linguistic and cognitive factors that may impact second language processing and
development. The RA is expected to fully participate in all aspects of the
project, including literature review, experimental design, data collection and
analyses, and presentation of the results at conferences and in manuscripts. The
RA will also be responsible for supervising undergraduate research assistants.
The RA position is contingent upon being admitted to the MA or PhD program in
Linguistics at the University of Kansas. The position provides a competitive
monthly stipend including the summer and full waiver of tuition and fees for one
year. There will also be opportunities for other teaching and research
assistantships and fellowships for the remaining years of the successful
applicant's graduate studies.
The applicant should have a strong background in either linguistics, psychology,
or cognitive neuroscience. Previous experience with EEG, MEG, or other cognitive
neuroscience methods is highly preferred. Familiarity with statistics is a plus.
Interested parties should apply to the MA/PhD program in Linguistics at the
University of Kansas. In your cover letter, please describe your interest in and
your qualifications for this specific position.
If you have any questions about this position, please contact Dr. Robert
Fiorentino at fiorentinoku.edu.
