A temporary, full-time position as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow is available at the University of Agder for a duration of two years.

The starting date is 1 August 2019, or subject to agreement during the recruitment process.

The person hired will contribute to a research project within the Experimental Linguistics Laboratory (ELL) run by Prof. Linda Wheeldon and Prof. Allison Wetterlin. The project will be run in collaboration with Prof. Aditi Lahiri (Language and Brain Laboratory, Oxford University) and Dr. Steven Frisson (Language Research Group, University of Birmingham). The research will employ eye-tracking and EEG methodologies to examine morpho-phonological processes in second language English reading and speech comprehension in Norwegian-English bilinguals. The Postdoctoral Research Fellow (RF) will be fully involved in the design, running, analysis and dissemination of the research. The project will support the career development of the RF by enabling the development of their research expertise in a theoretically and methodologically demanding project.

Applicants must have a PhD in Experimental Linguistics or Psycholinguistics and expertise in the design, running of EEG experiments and in EEG data analysis. They must also have excellent spoken and written English. They must have obtained their doctorate within the last four years, and preferably within the last two. The dissertation must have been approved within the application deadline.
