The MPI in Nijmegen is a leading research institute, with a
stimulating environment and excellent facilities. It is the only institute
devoted to the question of how we acquire, produce, and understand
language. Its investigations are highly multidisciplinary, uniting
anthropology, linguistics, psychology, neuroscience, computer
science and genetics.
The successful candidate will be affiliated with the department
Psychology of Language (A. S. Meyer). The mission of the
department is to understand the psychological processes and
representations underlying the production and comprehension of
spoken utterances. Much of the research in the department is
currently directed at understanding how and why adults differ in
linguistic knowledge and their ways of using this knowledge. The
research is carried out in close collaboration with the departments
Language and Genetics and Neurobiology of Language. The new
PhD project should concern individual differences in the structure of
the mental lexicon and in lexical access.
We seek exceptional students with a talent and inclination for first
class research. Candidates should have, or shortly expect to obtain,
a high quality scientific degree in psychology, cognitive
neurosciences, linguistics, computer sciences or related areas (MA
or equivalent). Solid knowledge of statistics and experimental design
is a requirement. Candidates should have excellent written and
spoken command of English and ideally some knowledge of either
Dutch or German.
The position is funded for 3 years. Starting date is September 1,
2012, or January 1, 2013. The institute provides state-of-the art
research facilities and technical support, and a generous conference
and travel budget. A program of taught courses is provided by the
International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS). The Max Planck
Society is an equal opportunity employer.
Applications should include the candidate's CV, a short statement of
research interests (2 pages), a sample of their writing, and the
names and e-mail addresses of two referees. Inquiries and
applications should be sent as soon as possible to the application
