A post-doctoral position in the neural bases of speech and lexical processing is available starting the summer of 2009. The research program focuses on using event-related fMRI to investigate neural systems underlying phonetic category invariance, competition across levels of the grammar, and the interaction of phonetic/phonological properties and lexical access in speaking and understanding. Facilities include a research dedicated 3T Siemens Trio MR system located at the Magnetic Resonance Facility on the Brown University campus (http://www.brainscience.brown.edu/MRF/). Candidates should have an interest and some background in language processing research and should have some experience working with functional neuroimaging including fMRI design and analysis. Ph.D. must be completed before starting. Current position is for two years with possible extension for up to five years. Send vita, brief statement of research interests, and 3 letters of reference to Sheila_Blumstein@brown.edu. Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.
