Professor Sandra Waxman invites applications for an NIH-funded postdoctoral
fellowship to work on language acquisition, cognitive development and the
links between them in the first two years of life. The postdoctoral fellow

interactive lab team.

Candidates should be creative, independent, articulate, and deeply engaged
in questions concerning the early acquisition of language and core
cognitive capacities.

Science, Cognitive Science or related field is required.

Excellent academic writing skills and research experience with infants or
young children are essential.

Excellent data analytic skills, or an eagerness to learn, are essential.
Experience with eye tracking methods is beneficial but not required.

START DATE:  Flexible. Ideally after June 1 and before October 1, 2015.  We
ask for a 2-year commitment. A third year renewal is possible.

SALARY: Salary will be based on the NIH postdoctoral rates.

TO APPLY: Please submit a CV, cover letter with statement of research
interests (1-2 pages), email contact for three references, and up to two
