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.
