We are looking for candidates interested in pursuing a rewarding research and academic career at the University of Nova Gorica. We offer a dynamic research environment supported by state-of-the-art research equipment and a pronounced international orientation.

The work will be conducted in the Center for Center for Cognitive Science of Language. The successful candidate will be tasked with developing and running eye-tracking and ERP experiments that are broadly related to the projects currently running within our center (assessment of sentence comprehension ability in adults; linguistic transfer in the pragmatic domain; real time processing of numeral-based noun phrases; the interplay between prosody, morphology and semantics in the verbal domain; agreement mismatches; word-structure processing). The candidate may be asked to take over some outreach duties and moderate teaching obligations in the university’s linguistics programs.

The successful candidate will be employed on a full-time basis for a fixed term of one year (pending sufficient funding, there may be a possibility to renew for a second year). The expected start date is September 1, 2021.

If the candidate holds a valid title of assistant professor and they submit evidence of this, employment at the rank of assistant professor will be considered.

To be considered for the position, candidates should have:
- A PhD in experimental linguistics, psycholinguistics or neurolinguistics,
- Ability to work independently, as well as to work in a team taking on an active role in organizing and conducting linguistic experiments, in particular eye-tracking and ERP experiments, and in recruiting child and adult participants,
- Experience in using EEG/ERP and eye-tracking,
- A strong background in theoretically-grounded experimental linguistics, neurolinguistics, psycholinguistics or cognitive science,
- A fluent command of English.

- Proven research experience or an active research agenda that concerns the relevant linguistics domains,
- A strong publication record,
- Knowledge of up-to-date statistical methods of data analysis.

Job call:

The following documents must be submitted:
- certificate of education,
- a CV detailing previous research experience and reflecting the fulfillment of the above stated application requirements and, if applicable, advantages,
- a short research statement,
- list of publications,
- a copy of a representative publication,
- two letters of reference (submitted directly by the referees).

The application should be sent as a single pdf e-mail attachment to the application email below.
