Postdoctoral Research Fellow – Neurobiology of Language, Queensland University of Technology (QUT)

The Language, Cognition and Brain Sciences (LCBS) laboratory at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is seeking a motivated and enthusiastic Postdoctoral Research Fellow to contribute to a range of research projects investigating the neurobiology of language in both healthy and language-impaired individuals. Applicants should have completed a PhD for qualification in psychology, linguistics, cognitive neuroscience, speech pathology or an equivalent field, and have proven technical ability with a demonstrated publication track record in neuroimaging/neurophysiological techniques.

Work conducted within the lab focuses on investigating the neural and cognitive mechanisms responsible for language processing in healthy individuals, how these mechanisms are affected by neurological conditions, and how language recovery can be facilitated by various treatments. It is anticipated that the appointee will work across a range of projects involving electrophysiology (including intracranial EEG), neuroimaging, brain stimulation, and psycholinguistic methods. There will also be opportunity for the appointee to develop new projects and obtain competitive funding based on their own research interests, in alignment with the goals and interests of the lab.

Interested candidates should apply online via the  QUT website or Seek addressing the selection criteria.

The deadline for application is May 19, 2017. Questions regarding this position may be addressed to Prof Greig de Zubicaray: or Dr Hanna Gauvin:

International Multisensory Research Forum in Nashville, TN - Abstract Submissions Open!

The 18th International Multisensory Research Forum (IMRF) is returning to the United States for the first time since 2009, and will be held at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, from Friday, May 19th through Monday, May 22nd.

This annual gathering of the international multisensory research community provides a platform for scientists from around the world to highlight research investigating the neural processes across multiple sensory modalities and their impact on perception and behavior. This meeting is a rich, multidisciplinary forum for cognitive scientists, neuroscientists, psychologists, and others, and is an exceptional opportunity for these individuals to present and discuss the most recent work in the field.  Areas of major emphasis include clinical disorders, cognition, computational modeling, decision-making, development, neuroanatomy, neuroimaging, physiology, and speech and language processing.

Abstract submission deadline is Wednesday, April 5th, 2017.
We will send notifications for abstracts selected to be talks on Wednesday, April 19th, 2017.

The program will feature 7 symposia, plus graduate student and post doc talk sessions. 
Featured speakers:
·       Robert J. Zatorre, PhD, McGill University
·       Charles E. Schroeder, PhD, Columbia University
·       Adam Gazzaley, MD, PhD, University of California, San Francisco
