Description:

The Laboratoire Parole et Langage, in association with Aix-Marseille
Université and the Brain and Language Research Institute, invites applications
for two postdoctoral fellowships supported by a grant from the A*MIDEX
Foundation. The funded project explores the relationship between social
categories and linguistic representations, and seeks to develop and extend a
cognitively explicit model that accounts for the effects of social identity on
speech production and perception. The empirical basis for the project will
involve a combination of experimentation (production, perception, ERP), corpus
analysis, and computational modeling.  The selected fellows will join an
interdisciplinary team from across the Brain and Language Research Institute,
which includes experts in linguistics, speech analysis, psycholinguistics,
neuroscience, computational linguistics, and computer science, among other
areas.

A special emphasis of the project concerns issues in prosody and intonation,
so an interest in, or experience with, prosody is highly desirable. In
addition, the ideal applicant will have experience in one or more of the
following areas:

- Sociolinguistics (quantitative)
- Stochastic/probabilistic approaches to linguistic theory
- Psychology/psycholinguistics of memory (esp. encoding and retrieval)
- Laboratory phonology
- Experimental linguistics

Each postdoctoral appointment is for a duration of up to two years depending
on the starting date, and subject to review after the first year. Applicants
should hold a PhD or expect to complete a PhD by the starting date. The
starting date is flexible, though the position should be filled by September
2015.

Applications should include (i) a cover letter that relates the applicants’
experience and interests to the project, (ii) a comprehensive CV, and (iii) a
PDF copy of all publications or a list of links where these can be accessed.

Applications may be sent by email to Jessica Bouanane (adminstrative manager)
at the application email below.

For further inquiries regarding the position or the project, please contact
James Sneed German (Principal Investigator) (email below).
