We have a post-doc available for the coming year. The post-doc is
available to individuals who have completed their Ph.D. and who are
interested in aspects of language and deafness. This includes all
aspects of ASL (linguistic, psycholinguistic, neurolinguistic, ...)
as well as any aspect of the development of English (reading,
writing, and/or speech) in deaf children. Start date Fall 1992.

Special opportunities at Purdue include:

 1) availability of a three-dimensional motion analyzer (WATSMART)
 for ASL phonetics/physics research;

 2) access to the Indiana School for the Deaf, which has the
 nation's first bilingual/bicultural program for Deaf
 children; they are very open to research possibilities;

 3) excellent equipment (including Super-VHS and an editing
 workstation) for video analysis;

 4) Linguistics faculty with expertise in ASL, tone languages,
 morphology, phonology, and prosodic phonology (including
 rhythm, intonation, and stress);

 5) Speech-Language pathology faculty with expertise in speech and
 language development and disorders, including specialties in
 specific language impairment, infant babbling and
 vocalization, and cross-cultural music patterns and the
 development of speech perception; special emphasis on
 intervention efficacy;

 6) Speech and Hearing Science faculty with expertise in motor
 control (mouth and hands), physiology of speech production,
 and intonation and rhythm in speech and ASL; and

 7) a thriving hypermultimedia software development lab capable of
 speech, graphic, and videodisc production and playback.
