Description:

The FAU seeks to appoint two postdoctoral researchers in empircal linguistics.
The researchers will be based in the Department of English and American
Studies and will be part of an international research group funded by the
Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and headed by Prof. Ewa Dąbrowska. In
addition to Prof. Dąbrowska, the group will include three post-doctoral
researchers (all based at FAU) and six doctoral researchers (four based at FAU
and two based at the University of Birmingham). The group’s research will
focus on individual differences in first language (L1) and second/foreign
language (L2) acquisition and attainment. In particular, the group will
examine relationships between individual strengths and weaknesses in specific
areas of linguistic and non-linguistic cognition, with a view to developing
and testing hypotheses about which aspects of language depend on which aspects
of cognition. 

The group’s research will include three main strands: 
- Explicit and implicit language aptitude, 
- Fluency/automatization, and
- Literacy.  

For further details, see the application link below.

- Knowledge of German
- Knowledge of Spanish or Portuguese 
- Experience in designing and carrying out psycholinguistic experiments 
- Experience working with children and/or low-educated participants 
- Experience working with corpora 
- Experience teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level 
 
Main Duties: 
- Design and carry out research relevant to one or more strands of the project
- Write up publications and present at conferences
- Contribute to supervision of PhD students and part-time research assistants
- Teach at undergraduate and/or MA level (approximately 5 hours per week for
Position 1, approximately 2 hours per week for position 2) 
- Manage the Linguistics Research Laboratory (Position 2 only) 
- Undertake any other duties consistent with the level and nature of the post

Salary: €44064 to €640547 per annum (depending on experience) 
Starting time: 1 October 2018 or as soon thereafter as possible
Length of appointment: up to six years (Position 1), up to four years
