Three vacancies in psycholinguistics (two pre-‐docs, one post-‐doc)
We offer three positions in psycholinguistics in connection to the project “the interface between memory and language in multilingualism”.This project investigates language processing in a first and second language and its relation with memory processes. The project is unique because of its wide scope of psycholinguistic processes under examination (listening, reading, speaking, self-monitoring, of words, sentences, texts, and discourse), its focus on the interface between language and memory, and in its relation with educational sciences. The project uses laboratory studies (reaction time studies, “megastudies”, corpus studies, eye-tracking, neuro-imaging methods), computational modeling, and intervention studies in classroom settings.
The project is funded by a “concerted research effort” grant from the special research fund of Ghent University, awarded to Rob Hartsuiker (spokesperson), Wouter Duyck, Marc Brysbaert, and Martin Valcke. It runs from 2013 – 2018.
We are currently recruiting three researchers on this project. The researchers will be based at the department of Experimental Psychology (http://expsy.ugent.be/staff/cstaff.htm), of Ghent University (http://www.ugent.be/en).
