Postdoctoral position in psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic aspects of lexical processing
Roberto G. de Almeida, Department of Psychology, Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec
Gary Libben, Departments of Applied Linguistics and Psychology, Brock University, St. Catherines, Ontario
We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work on projects investigating the comprehension of words, focusing on morphological processes, using behavioral and/or neuropsychological methods (e.g., aphasia testing). Current projects in our labs employ diverse behavioural, neuropsychological, and neuroimaging techniques as well as computational modeling. Ideally, the candidate will have a theoretical background in cognitive science with emphasis on linguistic levels such as morphology or lexical-semantics and with training in experimental work and aphasia. Experience with brain-imaging/recording (fMRI, ERP) techniques will be an asset. Aphasia research will be conducted in clinical settings affiliated with the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Rehabilitation of Greater Montreal (CRIR), at the Psycholinguistics Lab (Libben) and the Psycholinguistics and Cognition Lab (de Almeida). The postdoc will be working with a dynamic group of faculty, postdoctoral fellows, clinicians, and graduate students across two universities, and spanning diverse research settings.
