POSTDOCTORAL POSITION CENTER FOR LANGUAGE SCIENCE
 

Summary: POSTDOCTORAL POSITION
CENTER FOR LANGUAGE SCIENCE
PENN STATE UNIVERSITY
The Center for Language Science (CLS) at Pennsylvania State University (http://cls.psu.edu/) invites
applications for an anticipated postdoctoral position. We are seeking a candidate who has extensive
language neuroscience experience, particularly with fMRI methods, and who would like to develop
expertise on bilingual language processing. The position will include interaction with CLS faculty and
students and the larger Penn State neuroscience community (see http://www.imaging.psu.edu and
http://www.huck.psu.edu/education/neuroscience) towards developing fMRI expertise among students
and faculty and creating potential collaborative projects. The successful candidate will benefit from a
highly interactive group of faculty whose interests include bilingual language processing, second
language acquisition in children and adults, and language contact. Applicants with interests in these topics
and with an interest in extending their expertise within experimental psycholinguistics and cognitive
neuroscience are particularly welcome to apply. There is no expectation that applicants will have had
prior experience in research on bilingualism but previous fMRI expertise is critical.
The CLS is home to a cross-disciplinary research program that includes a new NSF training program,
Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE): Bilingualism, mind, and brain: An
interdisciplinary program in cognitive psychology, linguistics, and cognitive neuroscience. The program
provides training in research on bilingualism that includes an international perspective and that exploits
opportunities for collaborative research conducted with one of our international partner sites in the UK
