Jobs: Interactional Foundations of Lang: Post Doc, Max Planck Institute

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.

Description:

Postdoctoral Research Positions: Interactional Foundations of Language

In connection with the ERC Advanced Grant to Stephen Levinson, three
postdoctoral staff positions are expected to be available from June 1st
2011, in the general field of the study of human communication interaction.
The research will have two foci: (i) interactional timing and
synchronization, and (ii) the process of action and speech act recognition.
We are now looking for researchers who can address either or both of these
foci from at least one of the following methodologies:
(a) interactive analysis of a non-Indo-European language (or any sign
language) using corpus methods and statistics
(b) developmental studies of interaction with pre-linguistic infants and/or
children to the age of seven using experimental techniques
(c) studies of online processing during interactive language use with e.g.
EEG or eye-tracking

The positions will be for one or two years in the first instance, renewable
for up to five years. Pure research positions, with access to all the
requisite lab facilities (cognitive neuroimaging, reaction time, baby-lab,
etc.), they offer excellent opportunities to learn new techniques and build
a vita. The Max Planck Society is an equal opportunity employer. The
business of the institute is conducted in English and candidates should
have excellent written and spoken command of this language.

Applicants are advised to explore the MPI for Psycholinguistics website
(e.g.
http://www.mpi.nl/research/research-projects/interactional-foundations-of-language),
http://www.mpi.nl/news/levinson-awarded-prestigious-erc-advance-grant).

Applications should include a vita, a clear statement of personal research
goals, a description of special research skills, attached sample
publications, and the names of three referees. Applications will be
considered on an on-going basis until the positions are filled.

Please send applications (in English) electronically to:
Edith Sjoerdsma, email address below (secretary to Prof. S.C. Levinson)

Application Deadline: Open until filled.
