POST-DOCTORAL POSITION IN MEMORY AND READING
Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position at Haskins
Laboratories, New Haven, CT. This research is funded by an NIH/NICHD
grant directed by Dr. Julie Van Dyke, and involves investigations of
individual differences in memory retrieval and sensitivity to
interference in reading comprehension. The primary method of
investigation is the speed-accuracy tradeoff (SAT) technique, however
eye-tracking and computational modeling methods will also be used.
The project targets the population of non-college-bound adolescents,
who have reading difficulties serious enough to interfere with
successful completion of high-school, but who have not received a
diagnosis of dyslexia. More information about the project can be
found at http://www.haskins.yale.edu/staff/vandyke.html. We are
particularly interested in postdoctoral fellows with expertise in
mixed-effects modeling using the R statistical package. We encourage
applications from candidates with expertise in the areas of memory,
psycholinguistics, computational linguistics, or reading. The
position is available for one year, renewable for a second year.
Haskins Laboratories is an independent, world-renowned center for the
study of the cognitive and neurobiological foundations of spoken and
written language, disability, and instruction. Additional information
about the institution can be found at http://www.haskins.yale.edu.
Interested applicants should send a personal statement describing
their graduate training and how their research interests relate to
those of the project (described at the website above), a curriculum
vitae, and arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent to
Julie Van Dyke at jvandyke at haskins.yale.edu. Materials may also be
sent to the mailing address at the bottom of this message. Review of
applications will begin on June 1 and continue until the position has
been filled; anticipated start date is Sept 1.
