Job description

The postdoc position is part of the NWO-funded Vici research project "The age effect in bilingual development: grammatical gender in second language acquisition and first language attrition", awarded to Dr Monika S. Schmid (www.rug.nl/staff/m.s.schmid/research). The program examines to what extent second language learners can attain fully native-like representations of grammatical gender, and what the role of their own language background and the age at which they started acquiring the L2 is in this respect. In order to shed more light on this question, migrants who have lived in an environment where a non-gender language is spoken are also investigated. The project will employ neurocognitive experimental techniques (ERPs and eyetracking) as well as more traditional behavioral measures (grammaticality judgments and free speech).

Additional information as well as a complete description of the project and the PhD/Postdoc subprojects can be obtained from the principal investigator or secretary CLGC.

Requirements

- PhD degree in (Neuro-/Psycho-/ Applied/ General) Linguistics or a related field
- in-depth knowledge of theoretical approaches to second language acquisition
- native or near-native speaker of Dutch or German and excellent command of English
- ability to work in a research team
- ability or willingness to learn to apply experimental methods is an advantage.

Conditions of employment

The University of Groningen offers a salary with a minimum of € 2,379 till max. € 4,374 gross per month (figures based on full employment depending on education and work experience). The appointment of 0.75 fte is temporary for a specified period of three years.
The University provides a career advisory service for partners of new staff who move to Groningen.

Interviews will take place as soon as possible after the application deadline.

Start date: 1 January 2012 or earlier.

Affiliation
The postdoc will be affiliated with the 'Language and Literacy Development across the Lifespan' group of the Center for Language and Cognition Groningen (CLCG) at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Groningen. This institute embraces all the Linguistics research in the faculty.

The position requires residence in Groningen. After the first year there will be an assessment of the candidates' results and the progress of the project to decide whether the employment will be continued.

- a letter of motivation in English to apply for this project
- a curriculum vitae with the names and e-mail addresses of two academic referees.
