The newly established research group ''Neurobiology of Language'' in the 
Department of Linguistics at the University of Salzburg, Austria conducts research 
on online language processing, also in interaction with other cognitive sub-
systems. In the context of a project on neurocognitive correlates of Language 
Acquisition/L1-L2/Bilingualism, we invite applications for one PhD position: (B1 
Uni-KV §26 (75%), € 1.961,85 gross (14x annually)). The position is for 4 years.

Duties and Responsibilities:
We are searching for candidates with a background in Linguistics and/or 
Psychology with a focus on Psycho- and/or Neurolinguistics. Previous experience 
in experimental research and/or in collecting and analyzing EEG and/or eye-
tracking data is desirable but not mandatory. The candidate will be expected to 
undertake a PhD degree within the context of the project, and design, implement, 
and analyze experiments (EEG/eye tracking/fNIRS) on the project topic with native 
speakers. S/he will also be expected to write up the results for publication. 
Contribution to administration and teaching (max. 2 hours per term week) may be 

Applicants are expected to have the following skills:
- master's degree in Psycholinguistics, Cognitive Neuroscience, Psychology, 
Linguistics, or a related discipline;
- excellent command of both English and German; additional knowledge of 
Russian is a plus; native knowledge of one of the three languages is desired;
- demonstrated ability and high motivation to conduct high-quality research 
publishable in quality international peer-reviewed journals;
- familiarity with experimental research designs;
- good knowledge of statistics or commitment to acquire it;
- be dynamic and motivated;
- capacity to work both independently and as part of a team;
- solid programming skills (i.e., MATLAB® and/or R) are a plus;
- familiarity with the concept and analysis of oscillatory brain activity is a plus.

The successful candidate will participate in the activities of the newly established 
Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience (CCNS), and can apply for the international PhD 
program "Imaging the Mind" as an associated student (second funding 
period expected to begin October 2015). CCNS promotes a rich research 
environment and provides access to the most advanced behavioral and 
neuroimaging techniques, including 3 Tesla MRI, compatible EEG, 
TMS/navigation, high-density, depth and conventional EEG, tDCS, fNIRS, eye 
tracking, somatic physiology systems, several well-equipped behavioral labs and 
an MEG which will be operational in 2016. The CCNS equipment is exclusively 
dedicated to research, which provides a unique opportunity for graduate students 
to have generous access to such equipment for learning these modern techniques 
and using them in their research. 

We welcome applications from persons with disabilities. We particularly welcome 
applications from women. Given equal suitability, qualifications and professional 
achievement women will be given preference, unless particular circumstances 
pertaining to a male applicant predominate.

How to apply
Applicants should submit relevant documents: 
- a detailed curriculum vitae (CV);
