A full time postdoctoral position in the experimental study of language is
available in the Centre for Language Evolution at the University of
Edinburgh.

This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious researcher to join an
ESRC-funded project “Connecting cognitive biases and typological universals
in syntax” (Principal Investigator: Dr Jennifer Culbertson;
Co-investigators: Prof David Adger, and Dr Klaus Abels). We aim to explore
how properties of the human cognitive system impact language learning, and
shape linguistic typology. The post holder will be responsible for key
research-related activities, including designing, running, analysing and
writing up a series of experiments (with adult participants) involving
artificial language learning. The post requires substantial travel to field
sites outside the UK for data collection. You will also be responsible for
managing (with assistance from the PI and Co-Is) research assistants at the
field sites, who will assist with preparation of materials and testing of
participants.

Applications are invited from those with PhD in psychology, cognitive
science, linguistics, or a related discipline, and a strong track record of
research and publication in relevant areas.
