Description:

The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics (Nijmegen, The
Netherlands) announces an opening for two positions for postdoctoral
fellows (2003 - 2007). In collaboration with the F.C. Donders Centre
for Cognitive Neuroimaging (Nijmegen), the Max Planck Institute is
starting a new long-term project on multilingual language processing.
The project is intended to cover the processing of second and third
languages (L2+) during first contact, during acquisition, and in the
stabilized end state of high proficiency. Depending on the research
questions, these aspects of L2+ processing will be studied by use of
different methodologies, including reaction time experiments, gesture
analysis, and neuroimaging techniques (fMRI, ERP).

The first candidate we are looking for will conduct research on
syntactic and semantic interactions between languages in multilingual
speakers using traditional psycholinguistic approaches as well as
eye-tracking and gesture analysis. The ideal candidate should have a
background in language acquisition or bilingualism and a demonstrated
ability in experimental approaches to psycholinguistics or gesture
research.

The second candidate we are looking for will conduct research on
lexical access and syntactic processing in multilingual speakers using
traditional psycholinguistic approaches as well as ERPs. The candidate
must have a firm background in psycholinguistics and hands-on
experience in ERP research.

The candidates must have a Ph.D. or must submit the final accepted
version of the dissertation to the degree granting university by the
time of starting.

The vacancies will be filled as soon as suitable candidates have been
found. Please send an application letter (stating the possible
starting date, relevant research backgrounds, the CV, and two letters
of recommendation) before January 31st to
