Postdoctoral Research Associate, University of York, UK

We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral research associate to join a project funded by the UKRI Frontier Research Guarantee Funding (for selected ERC starting grants), entitled “Lost For Words: Cognitive Ageing And Language Control In Bilingual Older Adults With And Without Cognitive Impairment”. The goal of the project is to understand how bilingual language use and language control (as used, for example, while switching languages) change with ageing. The project combines interviews and focus groups with experimental paradigms looking at cognitive and neural mechanisms involved in bilingual production and comprehension. Job responsibilities include supervising and collaborating with other researchers on the project (including clinical partners), setting up the (partly longitudinal) research, testing participants, analysing data, and disseminating the results through publications and presentations. 

The position initially is for 36 months, with the option to extend for another 21 months. The position would start in November 2024. Application deadline is the 7th of June 2024.
