Postdoc on psycholinguistics/cognitive science at Aberdeen

As part of the EPSRC-funded project "Affecting People with Natural Language", the University of Aberdeen is looking for a psycholinguist or cognitive scientist to work on the issue of vagueness in language, in collaboration with computer scientists who work on natural language generation, and with other psycholinguists. The successful candidate is expected to focus on the comprehension of vague expressions, for example by trying to find out how quickly and accurately different quantitative expressions are comprehended and acted upon (e.g, 'Pick up the box that contains two marbles' versus 'Pick up the box that contains few marbles').

The closing date for the receipt of applications is 29 March 2010. Informal enquiries can be made to Dr Kees van Deemter at , or see http://www.abdn.ac.uk/jobs/display.php?recordid=COM004R.
