Grant Description and Goals:
Applications are invited from postdoctoral researchers with a background in language acquisition and neurosciences for a Postdoc position within the project Eyes and Brain – Early Markers of Language Development. This project will investigate early markers of language development in European Portuguese, following a multi-methodology approach to a set of potential early markers, using both eye-tracking and event-related potential (ERP) measures.

The Postdoctoral fellow will work on early markers of language development in four linguistic domains (phonetic discrimination, word stress, intonation, word learning), especially on ERP measures of early language acquisition in normally developing infants and infants at risk for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and specific language impairment (SLI).

The successful candidate will be expected to start between November 2013 and January 2014, and the post is initially available for one year. The grant can be renewed until the end of the EBELa Project (the expected maximum duration of the fellowship being 27 months), with renewal subject to performance appraisal.

Candidate Profile:
The successful applicant will have a Ph.D. in a relevant field, such as neurolinguistics, language acquisition, psychology, or cognitive neuroscience, and a strong background in ERP research. Experience in speech perception research with ERP (data collection, processing and analysis) is essential, and previous experience in infant speech perception research is desirable. A background in statistics, applied mathematics, or informatics will be a plus. Proficiency in English is required. Knowledge of Portuguese is not required.

Salary will be in accordance with the Portuguese Science Foundation salary scale, specifically 1.495€ per month (net).

Application Procedure:
Interested candidates are invited to send a complete Curriculum Vita, a motivation letter, a copy of the personal identity document and of the PhD certificate to labfonfl.ul.pt and to sonia.frotamail.telepac.pt . Please also provide a copy of your PhD thesis, as well as of any relevant papers. The application closing date is October 31st, 2013.
