You will be joining the Systematicity and Variation in Word Structure Processing Across Languages: a Neuro-Typology Approach (SAVANT) ESRC funded research project, specifically the Bangla element of the project.

The post holder will receive training and mentorship to enable them to make significant contributions to designing, running, analysing and disseminating a series of planned Bangla behavioural, MEG and EEG studies, and for working collaboratively with the other researchers on the grant across the research sites. The post-holder will also contribute to the planning and delivery of an outreach program involving children from local schools who will be invited to learn how they can design and carry out psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic research on the languages in their lives. The post is best suited to a candidate seeking advanced training and hands-on experience in psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic research prior to pursing a PhD in this area.
