  Dear all,

 Please pass this announcement for a postdoctoral position in my lab on to
your colleagues and students. Thank you!  (And apologies for posting both
this and a lab manager position in the same week!)

Dr. Rochelle Newman,  Professor
Chair, Dept. of Hearing & Speech Sciences <http://hesp.umd.edu/>
Associate Director, Maryland Language Science Center

   The Department of Hearing and Speech Sciences at the University of
Maryland, College Park,seeks a motivated post-doctoral research associate
to work in the Language Development lab.

Dr. Rochelle Newman anticipates an opening on a new 5-year grant focused on
children’s ability to learn from speech in noisy environments. This project
explores the reasons why young children appear more affected by background
noise than do adults, including issues relating to both attentional skills
and auditory processing. The lab is closely affiliated with the Maryland
Language Science Center (http://languagescience.umd.edu/), and the
successful applicant will have the opportunity to collaborate with a
lively, supportive community of over 200 language scientists.

Ideal candidates will have a PhD in psychology, hearing & speech science,
cognitive science, or a closely related field, and experience conducting
research with toddlers and young children. Responsibilities include, but
are not limited to: research project design/implementation/oversight,
mentoring of undergraduate research assistants, statistical analysis, and
manuscript preparation.

For best consideration apply by May 15, 2015, but applications will be
accepted until position is filled.

Interested applicants should complete the online application at
https://jobs.umd.edu (job position #118716). Required materials include a
letter of application, CV, a statement of research interests (2 pages), up
to two (2) publications uploaded as supplemental documents, and contact
information (names, telephone, and email addresses) of three references.
For questions, contact Dr. Rochelle Newman (301-405-4226) or

Salary is commensurate with experience. This is a full-time position,
minimum 12 months with the potential for continuation for several years.

The University of Maryland is an equal opportunity/affirmative action
employer. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.
