Jobs: Individual Differences in Lang Processing: Researcher, Max Planck

Editor for this issue: Christy Bird <christylinguistlist.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:

3 PHD POSITIONS

The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics offers three 3-year
positions for research leading towards a PhD in the field of psycholinguistics.

The successful candidates will join the newly formed research group
Individual Differences in Language Processing.
(http://www.mpi.nl/institute/research-groups/indiv-diff-group).

One of the projects should concern individual differences in message
generation and sentence planning. The other projects might concern novel
word learning and attention allocation in dialogue. The group uses a
variety of approaches, including questionnaires, experimentation (eye
tracking, EEG, use of a virtual reality lab) and computational modeling.
The participants in the studies are teenagers and young adults.

Candidates must have a solid background in cognitive psychology (preferably
psycholinguistics, memory or attention) and statistics. For one of the
projects, candidates with a strong computational background may be given
preference. All candidates should have native or near-native competence in
Dutch or German.

Applications should be sent to the application address below and should
include a full CV, a statement of research interests, and the names of two
academic referees.

Interviews will probably be held on March 17 and 18.
