Specialty Areas: Psycholinguistics, Experimental Psychology, Adult
		 Speech Comprehension


The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics is offering a
postdoctoral staff position in the field of spoken language
comprehension. It is a research position and involves no teaching
responsibilities, but the successful candidate will be required to
advise PhD students. Considerable technical and student-assistant
support is available to facilitate the candidate's research
program. The possibility also exists for collaborative projects in
neuroscience at the F.C. Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging.

Research at the institute in the area of language comprehension
currently focusses on decoding continuous speech in adult listeners
and on phonological learning for speech perception in infants and
adults. This research includes strong components of cross-linguistic
comparison and computational modelling. The group is led by Dr. Anne
Cutler, and currently includes seven scientists and nine students
working towards a PhD degree. The successful candidate is expected to
develop, in collaboration with other members of the group, a line of
research that complements our current research program. More
information about our research can be found at

We are particularly interested in a candidate with a strong background
in speech comprehension and with primary research interests in adult
processing of spoken language. Young scientists with a completed PhD
in the field of experimental psychology and/or psycholinguistics are
encouraged to apply. Important additional criteria are a commitment
to theoretically motivated research and a demonstrated ability to
publish research findings.

The position is available now and has a term of appointment of 3 to 5
years. We would prefer the successful candidate to begin this summer,
rather than later in the year. Applications should include a c.v.,
the names of two referees who would be willing to write letters of
recommendation, and a cover letter describing research interests and
research plans; examples of published work would also be helpful.
