Required Language(s): English (eng)


Applications are invited for a one-year postdoctoral position in speech 
perception and spoken word recognition through the College of 
Communication Arts & Sciences at Michigan State University. The position is 
funded by a 5-year NSF grant aimed at understanding the role of speech 
prosody, including pitch, loudness, speech rate and rhythm, to understanding 
spoken words. The postdoctoral researcher will be responsible for oversight 
of, and substantial contributions to, collaborative projects between Dr. Laura 
Dilley of Michigan State University and Dr. Mark Pitt of Ohio State University. 
While residence in and/or relocation to the central Michigan and/or central 
Ohio areas is preferred, a combination of telecommuting and on-site meetings 
could be arranged for the ideal applicant. 

The postdoctoral researcher will be primarily responsible for preparing written 
and oral presentations for journal publications and conferences and will also 
assist with helping to plan and conduct studies, including speech perception 
and production experiments and/or acoustic-phonetic analyses, as well as 
oversee undergraduate and graduate students working on related projects. 

A requirement for the position is good familiarity with the published literature 
on processes in spoken word recognition, including word segmentation and 
lexical access. A strong preference will be given to applicants with good 
familiarity with the published literature on speech prosody. Applicants should 
have a track record of published research commensurate with their 
experience in an area closely related to projects aims, such as speech 
perception, spoken word recognition, and/or prosody. A Ph.D. degree is 
required; preference will be given to candidates with a Ph.D. in hand, but 
Ph.D. candidates who can provide evidence of dissertation defense dates on 
or before August 11, 2012 will be considered. Relevant Ph.D. areas are 
Psychology, Speech & Hearing Science, Linguistics, and/or Cognitive 
Science. The successful candidate will have excellent organization and 
communication skills and strong personal motivation. Background and 
experience with manuscript submission to scholarly journals is desirable, as 
is training in acoustic analysis of speech segments and/or prosody, computer 
programming, and/or music performance/theory. English language proficiency 
required. The salary is $40,000 per year. 

To apply, refer to posting #6056 and complete an electronic submission at

three references that they may be contacted for letters of recommendation if 
our department notifies you that you are one of the top candidates. 

Review of applications begins immediately; applications received by April 30 
will receive full consideration. Those received later than this date will be 
considered until the position is filled or July 1, 2012, whichever is earlier. 
Work begins as soon as possible and not later than September 1, 2012.
