Open part-time position The Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics (Nijmegen, the Netherlands) is offering a part-time position in the innovative field of Language & Genetics. A part-time student assistant is sought to join the group of Sonja Vernes within the new, state of the art Neurogenetics of Vocal Communication Group (http://www.mpi.nl/departments/neurogen), investigating the genetic underpinnings of language and communication. The position will be a support role mainly involving histological lab techniques.
The NWO Gravitation consortium ’Language in Interaction’ invites applications for a postdoc position: ’Developing a language test battery for young adults’. In this position you will have the opportunity to conduct world-class research as a member of an interdisciplinary team. You will lead a project that will be part of a large-scale research programme aiming to characterize individual variation in language skills at behavioural, neurobiological and genetic levels. A crucial component of this ambitious venture is to develop a test battery for language skills that comprehensively, reliably, and efficiently assesses the core skills underlying speaking and listening. The battery should be suitable for assessing young adults (18 to 30 years) with a broad spectrum of abilities. You will play a central role in the development of this test battery.
The Language & Cognition department is looking for interns to carry out experimental work on the project “The role of multi-modal signals in turn-taking”.
