    (Updated) Postdoctoral Researcher in Cognitive Computational Modeling

    Deadline: Sunday 22 May 2022

    Are you interested in how people represent the word meaning? Are you curious how individual differences affect linguistic communication? Do you have experience in combining computational cognitive modeling and psycholinguistic research? If you are excited about doing this kind of research in an interdisciplinary environment with a team of friendly and enthusiastic colleagues, then you may want to join us as Postdoctoral researcher in cognitive computational modeling of individual differences in semantic representations.
