OFFER DESCRIPTION

In the context of the European ITN network eLADDA (Early Language Development in the Digital Age – https://www.ntnu.edu/e-ladda) we are offering one 3-year contract to complete a PhD at the Universidad de Sevilla on language intervention with deaf and hard-of-hearing persons in digital contexts. We encourage applicants from a wide range of fields, including Psychology, Speech and Language Therapy, Linguistics, and Education. Please bear in mind that certain eligibility criteria apply (see below and https://www.ntnu.edu/e-ladda/recruitment).

Experience in working with the deaf community will be valued, but is not required. Candidates with a motivation towards language acquisition in typical and atypical development, and intervention in digital contexts, including those without specific experience with deaf individuals are encouraged to apply.

The specific project at the Universidad de Sevilla (Department of Developmental Psychology - http://institucional.us.es/labdicole) is:

ESR10: Using text-message to teach vocabulary to deaf people: A way to improve reading comprehension

More Information

Benefits

The successful candidates will receive an attractive salary in accordance with the MSCA regulations for Early Stage Researchers. The salary includes a living allowance, a mobility allowance and a family allowance (depending on family status). The guaranteed PhD funding is for 36 months. In addition to their individual scientific projects, all fellows will benefit from further continuing education, which includes secondments, a variety of training modules as well as transferable skills courses and active participation in workshops and conferences.

Eligibility criteria

Applicants need to fully respect three eligibility criteria (to be demonstrated in the Europass CV format):

Early-stage researchers (ESR) are those who are, at the time of recruitment by the host, in the first four years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers. This is measured from the date when they obtained the degree which formally entitles them to embark on a doctorate, either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the research training is provided, irrespective of whether or not a doctorate was envisaged.

Conditions of international mobility of researchers:

Researchers are required to undertake trans-national mobility (i.e. move from one country to another) when taking up the appointment. At the time of selection by the host organization, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organization for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment. Short stays, such as holidays, are not taken into account.

English language: Network fellows (ESRs) must demonstrate that their ability to understand and express themselves in both written and spoken English is sufficiently high for them to derive the full benefit from the network training. Knowledge of the local language will weigh positively in selection.

Selection process

Deadline for applications is 10.09.2020.

Stage 1:

Candidates apply by sending a CV and a letter of motivation both in English, and a copy of highest academic degree. The Recruitment team selects suitable candidates based on eligibility checks and background expertise, and produces a short list. Applications should be sent to: ireyes@us.es

Stage 2:

Short-listed applicants from Stage 1 are then invited for interviews which will provide the basis for the final selection.

All chosen candidates are expected to start their contract in October 2020.
