FOR PSYCHOLINGUISTICS, Nijmegen, The Netherlands

The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics invites applications
for a three-quarter-time postdoctoral research position in its Language
Production Research Unit. The duration of the appointment will be
three years. The junior staff member will participate in the
research project on lexical access, which traces the process of
spoken word production from accessing a lexical concept to the
initiation and execution of a word's articulation in context. The
project relies heavily on reaction time experimentation and
computational modeling; it also links up with brain imaging work in
the Institute.

Applicants should have a PhD in one of the relevant cognitive
sciences (such as psycholinguistics, phonology, phonetics). We
are in particular interested in applicants who have the rare
combination of skills in both reaction time experimentation and
lexical/sub-lexical phonology, because phonological encoding of
words is a major theme in the project.
Applications including a CV (mention any languages you know), a
list of publications/reports, and names of two referents should be
sent per e-mail, fax, or letter to:

Prof. Willem J.M. Levelt, director
Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics
Wundtlaan 1
NL-6525 XD Nijmegen
The Netherlands
fax: (31-)80-521213
e-mail: PIMMPI.NL

Deadline for applications: April 3, 1995.
