Applications are invited for a full-time post-doctoral research position in the Speech Acquisition and Perception Group (SAP), led by Núria Sebastián Gallés, at Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona).

PGC2018-101831-B-I00 MCI/AEI/FEDER EU. The project explores how infants raised in bilingual homes learn words and how the words are represented in the infant bilingual mind. We use paradigms that employ well understood eye-tracking and neuro-imaging techniques. Experience with computational neural models to understand the mechanisms that underlies observed behaviour are a must.
