Pre- and post-doctoral research positions in MEG research in the NYU Neuroscience of Language Lab (PIs Pylkkänen & Marantz in New York or Abu Dhabi)

The NYU Neuroscience of Language Lab has openings for research scientists, which could be realized either as pre-doctoral RAships or as a post-doc. The RAs could be based either in our Abu Dhabi or New York labs. A post-doctoral fellow would be based in Abu Dhabi.

A BA/BS, MA/MS or PhD in a cognitive science-related discipline (psychology, linguistics, neuroscience, etc.) or computer science is required.

The hired person would ideally have experience with psycho- and neurolinguistic experiments, a background in statistics and some programming ability (especially Python and Matlab). A strong computational background and knowledge Arabic would both be big plusses.

The pre/post-doc's role will depend on the specific qualifications of the person hired, but will in all cases involve MEG research on structural and/or semantic aspects of language.

In Abu Dhabi, salary and benefits, including travel and lodging, are quite generous. We are looking to start these position in summer 2017. Evaluation of applications will begin immediately. For the RAships, please indicate if you have a preference for either Abu Dhabi or New York.

To apply, please email cover letter, CV and names of references to Liina Pylkkanen at liina.pylkkanen@nyu.edu and Alec Marantz at marantz@nyu.edu.
