The Neuroscience of Language Lab ( has an opening for a pre-doctoral research scientist in New York. A BA/BS or MA/MS in a cognitive science-related discipline (psychology, linguistics, neuroscience, etc.) or computer science is required.

The hired person would ideally have experience with psycho- and neurolinguistic experiments and a background in statistics and programming. A strong computation background is a big plus. Most important, though, is a can-do attitude, a creative mind, superb organizational and teamwork skills and a passion for research.

The hired person’s role will depend somewhat on the specific qualifications of the person hired but will in all cases involve:
- Administrative duties related to overseeing day-to-day operations across our two lab sites (NYC and Abu Dhabi) and
- MEG research on structural and/or semantic aspects of language.

Our lab aims to be a place where a diverse mix of talented people want to come and do their best work. We have a deep commitment to diversity and encourage applications from underrepresented groups, especially Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.

We are looking to start this position in Summer 2021. Evaluation of applications will begin immediately.

Please submit an application using the application link provided below.
