Dear colleagues,

FYI. Please note upcoming deadline (2/20/12):

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 20, 2012 and continue until the position is filled.
Appointees must have successfully defended their dissertation prior to
the start date, which is after July 1, 2012. We strongly encourage
applications from women and members of under-represented minorities.
