The hired person would ideally have experience with psycho- and neurolinguistic experiments, a background in statistics and some programming ability (especially Python and Matlab). A strong computational background and knowledge Arabic would both be big plusses.

The pre/post-doc's role will depend on the specific qualifications of the person hired, but will in all cases involve MEG research on structural and/or semantic aspects of language.
