Marie Curie Trainee post at UCL
We are seeking to appoint a one-year Marie Curie Trainee to conduct research in the Department of Speech Hearing and Phonetic Sciences at UCL, commencing December 2014 or January 2015. The post-holder will complete a project under the supervision of Dr. Paul Iverson and Dr. María Luisa García Lecumberri (University of the Basque Country, Spain), which will use EEG to examine how listeners adapt to accent differences under noisy conditions, particularly as related to second-language experience. This project would normally form part of the Trainee’s PhD thesis, and is open to visiting students as well as students who wish to be registered at UCL.
The post-holder will be a member of the FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network Investigating Speech Processing In Realistic Environments (INSPIRE) which comprises 10 European research institutes and 7 associated partners, and has the aim of training researchers to investigate how people recognise speech in real life under a wide range of conditions that are “non-optimal” relative to the controlled conditions in laboratory experiments. The Department of Speech Hearing and Phonetic Sciences is one of the largest groupings of researchers in this field in the UK, and is part of the Division of Psychology and Language Sciences within the newly formed Brain Sciences Faculty of UCL.
Applicants must be eligible for the UCL UK/EU student fees rate (normally a national of a European Union country), but must not have resided or performed their main research activity in the UK for more than 12 months in the 3 year period immediately prior to the start date. Applicants, by the start of the post, must hold an undergraduate or masters degree in a relevant discipline (e.g., Psychology, Speech and Hearing Science, or Linguistics) that is equivalent to a 1st class or 2:1 standard in the UK system.
