Positions in Phonological Development: Postdoc, PhD Support

Several positions at various levels (Postdoctoral Research Fellow, PhDstudents) are available at Macquarie University to pursue research onissues of phonological and morphological development in various populationsas part of the new Phonological Development Project at The Centre forLanguage Sciences (CLaS). Positions are available beginning August 1, 2010and will remain open until filled.

The project addresses issues regarding how and when phonological andmorphological representations develop, and how this is realized in speechperception, planning and production. It uses a wide variety of data andresearch methods (corpus analysis, language production experiments,acoustic analysis, ultrasound, MEG, computational modeling). We areparticularly interested in experimentalists with a solid background instatistics and acoustic phonetics, including knowledge of spectralanalysis. Experience with ultrasound, MEG, and/or running experiments withyoung children is also welcomed.

Macquarie University continues its long tradition in the speech sciences bybringing together researchers concerned with all aspects of speechperception and production. This is enhanced by excellent facilities forconducting linguistic research on a range of typical and language-impairedchild and adult populations, as well as the only child-sized MEG machine inthe world. All will be brought under one roof with the opening of the newHearing Hub, which will house researchers and clinicians from Linguistics,Cognitive Science, the National Acoustics Laboratory, Cochlear and others.

Postdoctoral Package: From $79,843 pa, including (Level A, Step 6) basesalary $67,468 to $72,372 pa, annual leave loading and 17% employer'ssuperannuation.
