University or Organization: Georg-August-Universität Göttingen Department: Language Acquisition Junior Research Group Job Location: Göttingen, Germany Web Address:
Job Rank: Post Doc

Specialty Areas: Cognitive Science; Neurolinguistics; Phonology; Psycholinguistics


The “Language Acquisition” Junior Research Group (Georg-Elias-Müller Institut für Psychologie, Georg-August University Göttingen) invites applications for a Post-doctoral research position (100% TV-L 13: 39,8 hours/week) within the framework of a DFG funded project entitled “The specificity of the orthography-phonology interface”. The project will examine the extent to which processing language in one modality co-activates the other, i.e., the extent to which reading co-activates the spoken forms of the words we are reading, or speech co-activates the written forms of the words we hear.

Candidates should hold a doctorate in Psychology, Linguistics, Cognitive Science or related fields. Other requirements include excellent communication skills, an interest in experimental psycholinguistic research and a commitment to interdisciplinary research. Previous experience collecting and analysing EEG data is desirable. The working language of the group is English and applicants from outside Germany are encouraged to apply.

The position is initially available for 12 months starting 1st January 2014 and can be extended for at least one more year following successful evaluation of 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 including a CV and cover letter in electronic form by 31st August, 2013 to Nivedita Mani at the application email address below. In addition, we ask that two academic references are sent separately to the same email address by 31st August 2013.
