The Neuroscience of Language Lab (http://www.psych.nyu.edu/nellab/
) has openings for pre-doctoral research scientists, one position in Abu Dhabi and another in New York. A BA/BS or MA/MS in a cognitive science-related discipline (psychology, linguistics, neuroscience, etc.) or computer science is required.
The hired person would ideally have experience with psycho- and neurolinguistic experiments and a background in statistics and programming. A strong computational background and knowledge of Arabic are both big pluses. Most important though is a can-do attitude, a creative mind, superb organizational and teamwork skills and a passion for research.
The pre-docs' roles 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.
We are looking to start these position in summer 2019. Evaluation of applications will begin immediately.
