Job Title: Postdoctoral Fellowship in Psycholinguistics with a Focus on Speech Production

Job Rank: Post Doc

Specialty Areas: Psycholinguistics


The Center for Multilingualism in Society across the Lifespan (MultiLing) at the Department of Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies at the University of Oslo, Norway, invites applications for a 2-year postdoctoral position (SKO 1352) in psycholinguistics, starting October 2021.

MultiLing is a Center of Excellence funded by the Research Council of Norway (2013-2023). MultiLing aims to generate scientific knowledge on multilingualism across the lifespan, related to three themes: Theme 1 Multilingual competence, Theme 2 Multilingual practices, and Theme 3 Multilingualism, ideologies and language policies (for more information, see MultiLing’s Research Strategy Plan (MRSP) for the Second Five Year Period (2018 – 2023) can be found at this link:

MultiLing seeks to recruit a postdoctoral candidate with excellent research qualifications who will work with MultiLing researchers collaborating on research as addressed in MultiLing’s Research Strategy Plan (MRSP). The fellowship is connected to MultiLing’s Theme 1 Multilingual competence, more specifically to a project on “Individual-specific preciseness in speech sound production over time and across languages”, led by Dr. Natalia Kartushina, in collaboration with Pr. James Flege (University of Alabama at Birmingham) and Dr. Clara Martin (BCBL, Spain).

The successful applicant will work closely with Natalia Kartushina (project manager) to examine within-category variability in native and non-native speech sound production (in monolingual and bilingual speakers, respectively), and its stability across time and languages. The project aims to answer the following questions: What determines this variability? and How stable is it across time?

Applicants are expected to present an independent research project proposal on individual-specific preciseness in speech sound production.

We particularly welcome projects adopting across-linguistic perspective (e.g., Norwegian, English, Spanish). However, projects focusing on one of the aforementioned languages will also be considered.

The position is available for a period of two years, starting October 2021. The main purpose of postdoctoral research fellowships is to qualify researchers for work in higher academic positions within their disciplines.

More information about the position can be found at the application link provided below.
