Post-doctoral position on Brain and Language Research at the LPL (Aix-Marseille University & CNRS), Aix-en-Provence, France

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.

Start: January-February 2024 

Duration: 24 months 

Monthly salary: ~2200€ net/month (dependent on experience)
