Jobs: Brain and Language: Post Doc, Georgetown U

Editor for this issue: Vanessa Manion <vanessalinguistlist.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 http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Description:

The Brain and Language Lab investigates the biological and computational
bases of language, and the relations between language and other cognitive
domains, including memory, music and motor function. The lab's research
examines both native and later-learned language. The lab is particularly
interested in within and between subject differences in the biocognition of
language, based on factors such as genetic variation, endocrine
fluctuations, and sex and handedness differences. The lab's members test
their hypotheses using a set of complementary behavioral, neurological,
neuroimaging (ERPs, fMRI) and other biological (genetic, endocrine,
pharmacological) approaches. They are interested in the normal acquisition
and processing of language and non-language functions, as well as in the
breakdown, recovery and rehabilitation of these functions in a variety of
developmental and adult-onset disorders. For a fuller description of the
Brain and Language Lab, please go to http://www.brainlang.georgetown.edu.

Postdoctoral Position:
The postdoctoral fellow will have the opportunity to be involved in a
number of different projects, using a variety of methodological approaches
(see http://www.brainlang.georgetown.edu), and to carry out her/his own
studies related to lab interests. Minimum requirements for the position
include a Ph.D. and background in cognitive neuroscience, cognitive
psychology, theoretical linguistics or a related field; research experience
investigating the neurocognition of language; and expertise in two or more
of the following: ERPs, fMRI, MEG, adult-onset disorders, developmental
disorders, psycholinguistic behavioral techniques, statistics, molecular
techniques. We are particularly interested in candidates with a substantial
background in, and an aptitude for, experimental design and statistics.
Excellent writing skills, a strong publication record, and previous
demonstration of funding will all be considered advantageous. Candidates
must have completed all PhD degree requirements prior to starting the position.

Research Assistant Position:
We are seeking a full-time Research Assistant/Lab Manager. The successful
candidate, who will work with the two RA/Lab Managers currently in the lab,
will have the opportunity to be involved in a variety of projects, using a
range of methodological approaches (see
http://www.brainlang.georgetown.edu). S/he will have responsibility for
various aspects of research and laboratory management, including in grant
preparation, computer administration, setting up and running experiments,
analyzing data, performing background research, and writing papers. Minimum
requirements: BA/BS or research experience in language, cognition,
neuroscience, computer science, or related fields. UNIX, Windows,
programming, and statistical experience are highly desirable. A car is
preferable because subject testing is conducted at multiple sites. The
candidate must be extremely energetic, hard-working, organized, efficient
and responsible, and be able to work with a diverse group of people.

For Both Positions:
To allow for sufficient time to learn new skills and to be productive,
candidates for both positions should ideally be available to work for three
years. A start date of spring/summer 2006 is preferable. Interested
candidates should email Marco Piñeyro (map89georgetown.edu) their CV and
up to 3 publications (or other writing samples, for RA applicants), and
have 3 recommenders email him their recommendations directly. Consideration
of applicants will begin immediately, and will end when the positions are
filled. Salary will be commensurate with experience and qualifications.
Both positions are NIH-funded. Georgetown University is an Affirmative
Action/Equal Opportunity employer. The positions include health benefits.
