The Department of Biocommunication, University of Alabama at
Birmingham, in conjunction with grants from the National Institutes
of Health, announces two (2) Post-Doctoral Fellowships.

The Fellows will work closely with the PI, James Emil Flege, Ph.D.,
to meet the objectives of NIH grants which seek to better under-
stand the evolution over the lifespan of the ability to learn speech
and language. Experiments using a wide range of techniques and
paradigms will examine the acquisition of a second language
(usually English) by native speakers of Italian, Korean, Japanese,
or Spanish. The second-language (L2) learners will differ according
to the age at which L2 learning commenced, years of use of the L2,
proficiency in the L2, or bilingual balance. One position involves
research that focuses on segmental production and perception.
The second position involves research focusing on differences in
the acquisition of phonetic/phonological and morphosyntactic
structures in the L2.

Requirements: A Ph.D. (or equivalent degree) in a discipline
relevant to the research (e.g., Experimental Phonetics, Exper-
imental or Developmental Psychology, Cognitive Science, Speech
Science, Linguistics, ESL). Neither US citizenship nor permanent
resident status is required.

Salary: $22,000 to $35,000 per year, depending on number of years
of post-doctoral experience. Health insurance, incidental expenses,
and a travel allowance will also be provided. (These non-faculty
positions do not involve a payback agreement with NIH.)

Earliest available date: January 1, 1996. Appointments will be for
one year, with renewals possible.
