Jobs: Psycholing: Post Doc, Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics

Editor for this issue: Svetlana Aksenova <svetlanalinguistlist.org>

The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Message 1: Psycholinguistics: Post Doc, Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Netherlands
Date: 27-Oct-2006
From: Rian Zondervan <rian.zondervanmpi.nl>
Subject: Psycholinguistics: Post Doc, Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Netherlands

University or Organization: Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics
Web Address: http://www.mpi.nl/world/groups/comprehe.html
Job Rank: Post Doc
Specialty Areas: Computational Linguistics; Phonetics; Psycholinguistics


The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics is offering a postdoctoral
staff position in the field of language comprehension. It is a research
position and involves no teaching responsibilities; furthermore,
considerable technical support is available. The position will be
available from the beginning of 2007 and has a term of appointment of 3 years.

Research at the institute in the area of language comprehension is centred
on two main projects: 'Decoding continuous speech' and 'Phonological
learning for speech perception' (see recent Annual Reports on the MPI
website). The research includes strong components of cross-linguistic
comparison and computational modelling. Current members of the group have
primary research interests in infants' development of language and word
perception, in adult processing of spoken language in native and non-native
languages, and in lexical structure and representation. There is research
in progress on a variety of topics in phonetic perception, the processing
of suprasegmental structure, the recognition of word forms (including
bilingual lexical access) and the segmentation of continuous speech.

We are looking for an experimental scientist with a background in
psycholinguistics or phonetics who is interested in undertaking research in
any of the above areas. An ability to work collaboratively in an
interdisciplinary team is a plus, and an important criterion is a
demonstrated ability to publish research findings. Note that the
environmental language for research purposes is Dutch; knowledge of Dutch
would certainly prove useful.

Young scientists with a completed Ph.D. in a relevant field are encouraged
to apply. Applications should include a c.v. and the names of two referees
who would be willing to write letters of recommendation; examples of
published work and a cover letter describing research interests would also
be helpful.
