Job Title: Junior PI 'Neuroanatomy of Language'

Job Rank: Researcher

Specialty Areas: Neurolinguistics


Description:

The NWO Gravitation consortium 'Language in Interaction' invites applications for a junior PI position.

We are looking for a highly motivated, creative and talented researcher who is able to establish a junior PI group on 'the neuroanatomy of language'. The junior PI and his/her group will enrich a unique consortium of researchers that aims to unravel the neurocognitive mechanisms of language at multiple levels. The goal is to understand both the universality and the variability of the human language faculty from genes to behaviour.

You will be given the opportunity to establish your own independent research group, and you will have free access to the Donders Institute's scanning facilities. You will be expected to conduct research in one or more research areas relevant to the position applied for. Supervision of BSc, MSc and PhD projects will be part of your responsibilities. Administrative duties will include local and/or national and international committee memberships. You will be provided with budgetary resources for a PhD candidate or technician, materials and consumables.

The Netherlands has an outstanding track record in the language sciences. The research consortium 'Language in Interaction', sponsored by a large grant from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific research (NWO) brings together many of the excellent research groups in the Netherlands with a research programme on the foundations of language. The consortium includes representatives from seven universities and one research institute in the Netherlands. Excellence in the domain of language and related relevant fields of cognition is combined with state-of-the-art research facilities and a research team with ample experience in complex research methods and utilization. This consortium achieves both quality and critical mass for studying human language at a scale not easily found anywhere else in the world.

The position will be embedded in the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour at Radboud University and the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics. Both institutes conduct research in an international setting. English is the lingua franca.

Application Deadline: 31-Jan-2015
