 University or Organization: University of Toronto (Mississauga Campus) 
Department: Human Communication Group, Department of Psychology
Job Location: Toronto/Mississauga, Canada 
Web Address: http://www.utm.utoronto.ca/psychology/
Job Title: Infant Speech Perception
Job Rank: Post Doc

Specialty Areas: Language Acquisition 


Applications are now being accepted for a full-time post-doctoral 
research scientist in Dr. Elizabeth Johnson’s Child Language and 
Speech Studies (C.L.A.S.S.) lab. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in a 
relevant field of study (e.g., Psychology, Linguistics, Hearing and 
Speech Sciences, or Cognitive Science), excellent writing skills, and 
advanced training in experimental design and statistics. Special 
attention will be given to candidates with a strong background in 
phonetics, psycholinguistics, and/or infant testing methodologies. The 
position will involve testing infants and/or toddlers, but prior 
experience doing experimental work with young children is not 
absolutely necessary.

The successful candidate will become a member of the Human 
Communication Group in the Psychology Department at the University 
of Toronto Mississauga (www.utm.utoronto.ca/psychology/research-
0/human-communication-hc), and will join Dr. Johnson’s SSHRC-
funded research program on the development of voice and word 
recognition (www.utm.utoronto.ca/psychology/faculty-staff/johnson-
elizabeth). Starting salary will be $39,000 a year. The successful 
candidate will work on a planned set of voice recognition experiments 
as well as develop a unique line of research in collaboration with Dr. 
Johnson. They will also be expected to work towards a strong 
publication record and apply for independent funding after the first 
year. Initial funding will be provided for one year, but renewals for up 
to two additional years of funding may be possible. This position is 
100% research and involves no teaching obligations (although some 
lab managerial and general mentorship of junior students will be 
expected). If strongly desired, some opportunities to gain experience 
teaching may be possible.

Interested candidates should submit a CV, a short statement of 
interest (<500 words), a sample first-authored publication, and the 
names of two potential letter writers. Reference letters will only be 
requested from shortlisted candidates. Application materials should be 
submitted directly to Dr. Johnson (email below). Review of applications 
will begin August 20th and will continue until a suitable candidate is 
found to fill the position. The optimal start date would be as soon as 
possible. International candidates with strong English skills are 
encouraged to apply.

Application Deadline: 01-Sep-2014
