CENTRE FOR SPEECH AND LANGUAGE
Birkbeck College
University of London

RESEARCH ASSISTANTS AND SYSTEMS MANAGER

Applications are invited for four research and research-support
positions in the Center for Speech and Language at Birkbeck College,
to work on experimental and computational research into spoken
language comprehension in normal and language-impaired populations,
with Professors William Marslen-Wilson and Lorraine K. Tyler. All of
these positions have a starting date of January 1st 1995, and three
positions, funded by an MRC Programme Grant, are potentially five
year appointments, to December 1999. The fourth position, funded by
an ESRC project grant, is available for 3 years, until December 1997.

Position 1: Research Assistant
This position is to support current experimental and computational
research into the representation and processing of lexical form,
focussing on the phonological aspects of speech comprehension, and
working with William Marslen-Wilson and Gareth Gaskell. Candidates
should have a background in experimental psycholinguistics and
linguistics. Experience in computational modelling using connectionist
techniques would be an advantage. This MRC-funded position is
available for five years from January 1995. Salary will be on the 1A
scale (16075-19141 English pounds, inclusive of London Allowance).

Position 2: Research Assistant
This position is to support experimental research into language
comprehension in normal and language-impaired populations, ranging
from lexical access to syntactic parsing and semantic interpretation, and
working primarily with Lorraine K. Tyler. Candidates should have a
background in cognitive psychology and/or psycholinguistics, and
clinical experience would be an advantage. This MRC-funded position
is available for two years from January 1995, with a strong possibility of
extension for a further three years. Salary will be on the 1A scale
(16075-19141 English pounds, inclusive of London Allowance).

Position 3: Research Assistant
This position is to support computational and experimental research into
the mental representation and processing of English inflectional and
derivational morphology, working with William Marslen-Wilson and
Mary Hare (at UCSD). Candidates should have a background in
language and connectionism, with experience both of experimentation
and modelling. This ESRC-funded post is available for three years from
January 1995. Salary is expected to be on the 1A scale (16075-23087
English pounds, inclusive of London Allowance).

Position 4: Half-time Systems Manager
Applications are invited for a half-time post supporting the computing
needs of the Centre for Speech and Language. Applicants should have
experience working with UNIX/C systems and PC/Mac-based
networks. As well as supporting the research centre's computer
network, the successful candidate will be responsible for the
maintenance and possibly development of the experimental software
used by the research group. An interest in Experimental Psychology
would therefore be an advantage. The post would be suitable for
someone wishing to pursue a part-time research degree within the
research group or elsewhere in London. This MRC-funded position is
tenable from January 1995, for up to five years. Salary is on the AR2
scale at 9570 English pounds, including London Allowance.

To apply for any of these posts, send three copies of your CV, plus the
names and addresses of 3 referees, to: Professor William Marslen-
Wilson, Department of Psychology, Birkbeck College, Malet St.,
London WCIE 7HX. Fax: (44)-(0)71-631-6312. Email:
ubjta38cu.bbk.ac.uk. Please make clear which post you are applying
for.

Closing date for applications is October 28th, 1994
