Postdoctoral research assistantship on the Connectionist reading model, Aachen, Germany

The Institute for Language and Communication Studies at RWTH Aachen University has an opening for a Post-doctoral Research Assistant.

"Anthropological universals - cultural differences" is an interdisciplinary project funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The project compares the German writing system with Japanese Kanji as well as their cognitive processing. The aim of the project is to create an empirically appropriate connectionist cognitive model for single word recognition.

The succesful candidate will be responsible for programming and analysing an artificial neural network of single word recognition and lexical decision in Japanese (Kanji), and cooperate closely with the researchers of the other sub-projects. Half of the time will be spent in Oxford (UK) at the lab of Gert Westermann. The position is to be filled as soon as possible and is for a fixed term limited to 15.09.2011.

Please send your application by 30 October 2010. For further information, see http://kanji.isk.rwth-aachen.de/2258.html or contact Christoph Wenzel at .
