  Empirical Methods in the Cognitive Science of Language

The Department of Cognitive Science at Johns Hopkins University is
offering Postdoctoral Traineeships in a problem-centered language
research program encompassing psycholinguistics, theoretical
linguistics, cognitive neuropsychology (especially neuroimaging and
cognitive neuropsychology of language), language acquisition, and
computational linguistics.  Ideal trainees will have previous
experience in one or more of these disciplines and will possess strong
motivation for training in the other areas.  Trainees must be able to
work independently, demonstrating high levels of initiative. Applicants
are required to submit a brief (approx. 3-page) proposal, indicating
(1) what courses or other academic resources they wish to take
advantage of in order to augment their doctoral education; (2) how they
expect to contribute to the training environment; (3) what research
activities they are interested in pursuing during their post-doctoral
appointment; and (4) how their proposed research fits in with existing
research in Cognitive Science at Johns Hopkins.  Applicants are
referred to our website ( for further information on
the training program.  The interactive training environment for these
positions includes the facilities of the Cognitive Science Department
and other related units at Johns Hopkins, including the Center for
Language and Speech Processing, the Psychology and Neurology
Departments and the Mind/Brain Institute, along with access to a
research-dedicated fMRI facility providing extensive technical support
(the Kirby Center).  The Traineeships are part of the department's
NSF-supported Integrated Graduate Education and Research Training
(IGERT) Program in the Cognitive Science of Language, and are also
supported through a group NSF Learning and Intelligent Systems (LIS)
grant on Optimization in Language and Language Learning.  Traineeships
will begin on September 1; awards are for a period of one year and may
be renewable.  Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of
the US.  The deadline for applications is January 31, 1999, but
applications will be accepted after that time until the positions are
filled.  Please send CV, proposal, and three letters of reference to:
IGERT Postdoctoral Traineeships, Department of Cognitive Science, Johns
Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD 21218-2685.

The Johns Hopkins University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action
Employer.  Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.
