Description:

The International Doctorate for Experimental Approaches to Language And Brain (IDEALAB) offers 3-year PhD positions in the area of psycho-/neurolinguistics from September 2020. The PhD program has been established as an outstanding 3-year doctoral training to its candidates to study structure, processing and foundations of human language integrating interdisciplinary approaches.

For this purpose, three European universities (Potsdam (GER), Groningen (NL), Newcastle- upon-Tyne (GB),) and one non-European university (Macquarie University Sydney (AU)) provide an intellectual environment for original and independent research on experimental and clinical aspects of language and the brain. The program is jointly offered by this transnational consortium with an integrated study program along with required mobility between the participating institutions. The mobility plan of each individual young researcher is tailored according to the particular specialities required by the thesis topic.

We are currently seeking a candidate with a strong laboratory phonology and/or child development background to develop a project on the acquisition of laterals by monolingual and bilingual Arabic children in Germany, the UK and Australia using ultrasound tongue imaging techniques. The chosen applicant would be co-supervised by experts in 3 sites and would spend time at each of Macquarie, Newcastle, and Potsdam.

The application period ends on 31 January, 2020.
