Editor for this issue: Bethany Townsend <bethanylinguistlist.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.

Description:

Post-doctoral position in Psycholinguistics/Neurolinguistics/Language
Acquisition
University of Maryland

The Cognitive Neuroscience of Language (CNL) Lab at the University of
Maryland at College Park (suburb of Washington DC) is looking for a
postdoctoral researcher to participate in all aspects of research. The CNL
Lab comprises around 40 faculty, staff, and students engaged in research
that spans language acquisition, language processing, and neurolinguistics,
including the study of acquired and genetic disorders. The lab has on-site
facilities for whole-head MEG recordings, high-density EEG, head-mounted
and stationary eye-trackers, and a variety of behavioral paradigms. Lab
members have access to an on-campus laboratory preschool and infant testing
facilities. Lab members have also conducted fMRI and PET studies through
local collaborations. CNL Lab faculty include Valentine Hacquard, Bill
Idsardi, Jeff Lidz, Colin Phillips, David Poeppel, Amy Weinberg, and Andrea
Zukowski, and there are close ties to labs in Psychology, Computer Science,
Hearing & Speech Science, Electrical Engineering, and Second Language
Acquisition. The post-doc position is not linked to a specific project, and
the ideal candidate will be able to contribute to more than one of the
lab's research foci and to the Department of Linguistics' other strengths
in theoretical and computational linguistics. This is primarily a research
position, but some limited teaching may be required. Initial appointment is
for 1 year, with the possibility of renewal for a second year. Anticipated
starting date is September 1, 2008, and PhD should be in hand by starting
date. Salary is competitive. For best consideration, submit a letter of
application and current CV, and arrange for 3 references to be submitted
electronically.

Inquiries may be directed to any CNL Lab faculty member. Please note that
all application materials, including letters of recommendation, should be
submitted electronically if at all possible (PDF files preferred).
Application materials should be sent to Bill Idsardi, idsardiumd.edu. The
last-resort mailing address is: CNL Post-doc Search, c/o Bill Idsardi,
Department of Linguistics, 1401 Marie Mount Hall, University of Maryland,
College Park, MD 20742. Review of applications will begin on March 24th,
but the position will remain open until filled.

The Cognitive Neuroscience of Language Lab is a well-integrated community
of over 40 faculty, students and research staff, engaged in research on a
wide variety of areas of language, ranging from acoustics to semantics, in
children and adults, normal and disordered populations, and covering around
10 languages. The lab has facilities for behavioral testing of children and
adults, two eye-tracking labs, a high-density ERP lab and a whole-head MEG
facility. The lab is affiliated with the Departments of Linguistics and
Biology, and with the Neuroscience and Cognitive Science Program.

The University of Maryland is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunities
Title IX employer. Women and minority candidates are especially encouraged
to apply.

Application Deadline: Open until filled.
