Postdoctoral Researcher – Psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, corpus linguistics, clinical linguistics

Starting date : 01/02/2020 (flexible)

 

The Octogone-Lordat Lab (University of Toulouse Jean Jaurès, France : https://octogone.univ-tlse2.fr/) offers a post-doctoral position for 1 year, with a possibility of 1 year extension.

The neuropsycholinguistic study of language processing is the major topic of our lab, focusing on typical language use, language disorders and rehabilitation processes (as in aphasia), at the intersection of linguistics, psycholinguistics and neuroscience.

The post-doc will contribute to the project “Aphasia, Discourse Analysis and Interactions” funded by the European Regional Development Fund and the Région Occitanie - France. Strong background in linguistics, psycholinguistics or neurolinguistics, cognitive science, and in methodological skills for data collection in corpus linguistics and clinical linguistics as well are required. The post-doc will actively contribute to the development of a new database focusing on typical and atypical language in aphasia. Along with the project supervisors, the post-doc will be involved in all activities in line with the project (IRB approval, etc.), including data collection, coding and analyses from various perspectives. Attested experience with empirical and experimental methods (corpus linguistics) is appreciated, as well as a strong research interest for clinical issues. The post-doc will also coordinate trainees’ and students’ work involved in the project, and contribute significantly to publication of the findings. The applicant should, at least, have completed a PhD in Linguistics, Neuropsychology, Cognitive Science or related fields, and prove high proficiency level in French according to the CEFRL. Good skills in spoken and written academic English are also required.

 

This is a full time position starting in February 2020 (flexible).
