The Research Group Cognitive Science: Methods and Language (CSML) at the University of Potsdam, Germany, is recruiting a Post-doctoral researcher

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a background in psycholinguistics or experimental linguistics (Ph.D in Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience, or Linguistics). The ideal candidate will have solid expertise in applications of statistics and documented experience in the study of cognitive processes using eye-tracking methodologies. Good written and oral communication skills in English and German are essential. Basic knowledge of French is desirable. Programming skills (Python, Matlab) are a plus.

The position is funded by a DFG grant awarded to Audrey Bürki. It is a full time position (40 hours per week), and it is limited to 30 months. The candidate will work on the project "Planning utterances across languages". S/he will design and implement behavioural/eye-tracking experiments involving language production tasks in German, English and French, collect and analyse the relevant data, and submit the outcome of these experiments to conferences and journals in the field. The candidate will be based at the University of Potsdam (Germany) but will undertake several short stays at the Universities of Marseille (France) and Exeter (UK) to collect data with French and English monolingual speakers.

Please send your application including CV, copies of certificates, cover letter, statement of research interests, your PhD thesis, and two letters of recommendation by email to the application email provided below by December 31, 2018.
