“We are seeking to fill two post-doctoral positions at the University of Chicago as part of a NIH-funded longitudinal project investigating the development of language in typically-developing children and in children with unilateral brain injury. The focus of these post-doctoral positions is to explore the factors that predict language, reading and other skills important for academic success in the elementary through middle school years. Researchers will work primarily with Susan Goldin-Meadow and with Susan Levine in a highly collaborative environment. Additional information about the project can be found at http://ldp.uchicago.edu, and through the Goldin-Meadow and Levine lab websites: http://goldin-meadow-lab.uchicago.edu and http://cogdevlab.sites.uchicago.edu.

A doctoral degree is required in psychology, cognitive science, or education with research interests in cognitive development. Experience coordinating the work of others and strong project management skills are preferred. Strong candidates will have demonstrated their ability to be independent, productive researchers and will have expertise in investigating language and/or gesture.

Start date is flexible; preferred date is by September 1. Interested candidates should send a CV, a research statement, preprints/reprints of papers, and two letters of recommendation to:
