We are looking for a motivated post-doctoral researcher for a period of 24 months to work on the ANR funded project ‘The Spatiotemporal Dynamics of Syntax across the Language Modalities (DynSyn),’ with Dr. Kristof Strijkers of AMU-France as PI and with Prof. Liina Pylkkänen of NYU-USA as an external collaborator. In this project, we investigate whether our brains compute syntax similarly in language production and language perception.
As a post-doctoral researcher, you would have two principal roles:
(1) be the lead in a research project investigating syntactic processing in production and perception with fMRI and/or EEG/MEG (we offer flexibility in paradigm, technique, etc.)
(2) collaborate on M/EEG studies on the same topic with a PhD candidate in the team (Bissera Ivanova).
Applicants should hold a PhD in a relevant discipline (e.g., cognitive science, linguistics, psychology, neuroscience, biology), and have prior experience with neuroimaging techniques like EEG, MEG and/or fMRI. A strong background in psycho-/neuro-linguistic theory will be considered a significant plus.
