Research Assistant at the Donders Centre for Cognition

Updated: about 1 month ago
Deadline: 20 May 2021

The Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, in conjunction with the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, is offering a research assistant position. As a research assistant you will join the

Communication on Social Interaction

(CoSI) Group, led by PI

Judith Holler

, and you will support the Communication in Action (CoAct) project, recently funded by the European Research Council. 

The CoAct project investigates the role of visual communicative signals (including those performed with the hands, head, torso and face) during language use and processing in situated, face-to-face communication. In doing so, the project combines a variety of methodological approaches, including the collection and analysis of conversational corpus data and experimental data. The analyses of multimodal language use and processing will rely partly on traditional data (e.g. video recordings and conversational behaviour coding, reaction times, EEG), and partly on novel motion capture data and Virtual Reality techniques.

As research assistant on this project, you will help us code and analyse (manually and automatically) conversational corpus data (speech and bodily communication data). You will also be involved in the preparation of experiments, recruitment, experimental data collection and processing. You will also complete some administrative tasks as well as audio transcription.
