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:
