Postdoctoral Researcher in Computational Cognitive Science of Language

Updated: 4 months ago
Job Type: Temporary
Deadline: 16 Sep 2021

As a postdoctoral researcher you will be responsible for directing, planning and executing theoretical, computational modelling projects on language processing. The objective is to relate various computational models derived from a theoretical model to explain patterns in neuroimaging data, behaviour and linguistics using contemporary computational and data analysis techniques.

The focus will be on developing systems that can represent structured representations during both 'comprehension' and 'production' while holding fast to principles of neural computation and aspects of formal linguistics. You will perform a range of simulations and modelling experiments, as well as devise and implement models, perform data analysis, and write papers in collaboration with the group leader. This position also involves supervision and mentoring of junior researchers (e.g. PhD candidates, Master's students and interns). You will have the opportunity to publish first author papers, contribute to related projects as a co-author and present your work at international conferences and institutions. This is an outstanding opportunity to develop your research skills and ask exciting scientific questions to drive forward your own research project(s) in this new area of research using cutting edge approaches.
