The Postdoctoral Researcher will join the ERC-funded project “Syntax shaped by cognition: transforming theories of syntactic systems through laboratory experiments” (Principal Investigator: Dr Jennifer Culbertson). This project aims to explore and formalize the cognitive forces that shape natural language syntax.
