The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to engage in non-discriminatory hiring practices. We urge employers not to discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, 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:

The 'Language Acquisition' Junior Research Group at the Georg-Elias-
Müller Institute for Psychology, Georg-August University Göttingen
invites applications for two PhD positions (50% TV-L 13: 19,9
hours/week).

The "Language Acquisition" Junior Research Group is interested in
examining the mechanisms underlying the ease of infants' language
acquisition and language processing. Researchers working in the
group have varied interests including topics such as word
segmentation and word learning in young children, differences
between first and second language acquisition, the interaction between
visual and social cues in language processing, the interface between
orthographical and phonological processing.

Candidates for the position should hold an excellent Master
qualification in Psychology, Cognitive Science or related fields. The
candidate is expected to develop their own project in the context of the
group's research foci. Other requirements include excellent
communication skills, an interest in experimental psycholinguistic
research and a commitment to interdisciplinary research. Candidates
with previous experience in experimental studies with young children
are especially encouraged to apply. The working language of the
group is English and applicants from outside Germany are encouraged
to apply.

Both positions are initially available for 12 months starting 1st October
2012 and can be extended for up to 3 years following successful
evaluation of the group and the person.

The University of Göttingen is an equal opportunities employer and
places particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for
women. Qualified women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply
as they are underrepresented in this field. Disabled persons with
equivalent aptitude will be favoured.

Please send your application with the usual documents in electronic
form by 15th July, 2012 to Nivedita Mani at the email address below.
We request that you send us copies of your application documents, as
no returns will be made. We will destroy the documents after a holding
period of five months. Application documents will only be returned to
you if you provide a self-addressed adequately stamped envelope.
