Dear Colleagues,

[Apologies for duplicates]

The Center for the Language Sciences at the University of Rochester seeks
one outstanding postdoctoral fellow for a NIH-funded training grant. The
Center brings together faculty and students with interests in spoken and
signed languages from the Departments of Brain and Cognitive Sciences,
Computer Science, Linguistics, and Philosophy, as well as the
interdepartmental program in Neuroscience. We encourage applicants from any
of these or related disciplines who have expertise in any area of natural
language.  The training faculty has combined expertise in formal,
behavioral, computational and imaging (fMRI, ultrasound) approaches to
understanding the structure, processing, production and acquisition of
natural language, and we encourage applicants who work in any of these
areas. We are particularly interested in postdoctoral fellows who want to
contribute to an interdisciplinary community.

NIH fellowships are open only to US citizens or permanent residents.
 Applicants should send a letter describing their graduate training and
research interests, a curriculum vitae, and arrange to have three letters of
recommendation sent to: Professor Jeffrey T. Runner, c/o Kathy Corser (
kcorser at  Review of applications will begin on February
15 and continue until the position is filled.  Appointees must have
successfully defended their dissertation prior to June 15, 2011. The start
date is July 1, 2011. We strongly encourage applications from women and
members of under-represented minorities.
