Post doc

Applications are invited for a 12-month full-time Postdoctoral Position in experimental phonetics, psycholinguistics and neuroscience in Lyon, France. The post-doc is part of an exciting new project (funded by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche) whose aim is to explore the behavioural and electrophysiological correlates of ‘atypical’ phonemic contrasts (derived contrasts, contrasts restricted to a certain type of lexicon, etc.) in an attempt to provide strong empirical arguments of potential interest to phonologists and linguists.
The successful applicant will have a PhD in experimental phonetics - with strong emphasis on experiments - or a PhD in cognitive sciences/neuroscience – with particular focus on the perception and representation of speech sounds.
Among other things, the post involves travelling to English-speaking countries (Scotland and Ireland) to carry out behavioural experiments and recordings; native speakers of English are therefore very welcome to apply. Working knowledge of French will be considered an asset. Given that a substantial part of the project has to do with EEG, the successful candidate is expected to be familiar with this technique as well as the Matlab computing environment.
To apply, please send a CV, brief statement of research interests by email to in PDF. Please also arrange for two letters of recommendation to be sent to the same address.
Net monthly pay: 2,000 euros.
