The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards. Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Department: Language Section/Voice Speech and Language Branch
Job Rank: Post Doc
Specialty Areas: Neurolinguistics; Functional Neuroimaging
A postdoctoral fellowship is available immediately in the Language Section,
NIDCD, NIH Intramural Program, Bethesda, MD
Our section conducts multimodal imaging studies of language - from elementary
perceptual and motor function to the level of discourse, using hemodynamic
(fMRI, PET), radiotracer (PET) and electrophysiological (EEG, MEG) techniques.
An ideal candidate would have experience with one or more of these methods
and/or computational methods used in the analysis of the data they provide, and
a strong interest in using these methods to study brain-language relationships.
Our general strategy involves developing imaging paradigms in the normal
population and using these to study neurological or psychiatric disorders that
affect speech, voice and language. We are interested in a number of such
disorders (e.g. Parkinson's Disease, developmental stuttering, Tourette
Syndrome) however the present position would be dedicated to designing and
conducting longitudinal studies of recovery in aphasia - evaluating and
modeling the natural history, and behavioral or pharmacological augmentation of
long term neuroplastic reorganization and repair in this disorder.
The fellowship carries an initial contract of two years with an option to renew.
The Language Section is a cooperative environment in which there is an
opportunity to interact with postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and
technicians with a wide range of interests and skills. Instrumentation
available to our Section at The NIH clinical center includes a 3T GE MRI
instrument, GE Advance PET scanners, 275 channel CTF MEG and Neuroscan EEG/ERP
systems, as well as animal imaging facilities using MRI, CT, PET and
A PhD or MD degree is required. Knowledge of fMRI, MEG and experience in
using these methods to evaluate brain language relationships strongly preferred.
Experience in computer programming, image processing and a proven ability to
implement methodology will be advantageous as well.
