Description:

The Neuroscience of Language Lab at NYU Abu Dhabi has openings for research scientists, which could be realized either as pre-doctoral RAships or as a post-doc. All positions are based in Abu Dhabi but involve regular travel to New York. A BA/BS, MA/MS or PhD 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, a background in statistics and programming (especially Python and Matlab). A strong computational background and knowledge of Arabic are both 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.

In Abu Dhabi, salary and benefits, including travel and lodging, are quite generous. We are looking to start these position in summer 2018. Evaluation of applications will begin immediately.

To apply, please email cover letter, CV and names of references to Liina Pylkkänen at liina.pylkkanennyu.edu and Alec Marantz at marantznyu.edu.

Application Deadline: (Open until filled)
