Center for Language and Brain

Postdoctoral research positions. Deadline: April 1, 2016

The Higher School of Economics Center for Language and Brain in Moscow, Russia, invites applications for postdoctoral research positions in the field of neurolinguistics and/or clinical linguistics.
The job involves:
·   working under the direct supervision of Laboratory’s director Dr. Olga Dragoy;
·   candidates are encouraged to pursue their own research in parallel with working on Center for Language and Brain’s research projects in the broad area of neural foundations for language and related cognitive functions, with the focus on clinical and neuroimaging evidence;
·   writing research papers for international peer-reviewed journals in co-authorship with the members of the Lab;
·   participation in organization of the events and other contribution to the Lab’s development;
·   public presentations of candidate’s own research to the researchers in the field and the broader academic community;
·   some teaching is encouraged, though not required.


The Lab offers access to large populations of brain-impaired individuals and the necessary technical resources (a 126-channel EEG system, 1.5 and 3 T MRI scanners, TMS, tDCS and tACS systems, high-speed eye-trackers). 


·     a PhD from an international research university in Linguistics, Psychology, Speech and Language Sciences, Neuroscience, Mathematics, Computer Science or related fields;
·     a strong background in at least one of the fields:
      -     experimental studies of cognition (good knowledge of paradigms, advanced expertise in using state-of-the-art neuroscientific techniques, e.g., ERPs, fMRI, TMS, tD/ACS, VLSM ),
       -       clinical research (experience of working with clinical populations, e.g., aphasia, developmental language disorders, TBI, neurosurgery clients),
    -    mathematics/computer science (complex statistical analysis, computational modelling, programming skills, ability to develop new approaches to neuroimaging data analysis);
·     ability to work in a team;
·     fluent English (knowledge of Russian is an asset, but not required).

General conditions for Post-Doctoral Research positions can be found here . Appointments will be normally made for one year.
