Postdoc on eye-movement control during reading, CNRS & Universities of Marseille and Nice

Applications are invited for a one-year postdoctoral position on eye-movement control during reading. The aim of the project is to study the interplay between low-level visuo-motor mechanisms and language-related processes. Experience in vision research and/or psycholinguistics as well as eye-movement recording and statistical analysis of large data sets will be preferred. The position is already open and the postdoc can start as soon as October 1st. The salary will be determined according to the CNRS standards (about 2000€ net per month). Speaking French will be a plus, but fluency in English is the minimal requirement.

The experiments will be conducted in Marseille with Françoise Vitu-Thibault in the Perception & Attention group of the Laboratory of Cognitive Psychology (LPC, UMR 7290) in Marseille St Charles (Aix-Marseille Université, CNRS). The rest of the project will be conducted with Frédéric Lavigne in the Language and Cognition Team of the laboratory Bases, Corpus, Language (BCL, UMR 7320) in Nice (Université of Nice, Sophia-Antipolis, CNRS). The postdoc will be based in Nice or Marseille, at his/her own convenience, knowing that he/she will have to travel frequently between the two sites (1h30 by train).

A curriculum vitae and a list of publications should be sent to both Françoise Vitu-Thibault (Francoise.Vitu-Thibault [ à ] univ-provence.fr) and Frédéric Lavigne (lavigne [ à ] unice.fr). The position will be filled before the end of 2012.
