UNIVERSITY OF YORK
Department of Psychology
The Department of Psychology at the University of York is seeking a Research Associate from 1 June 2018 to contribute to a 2-year ESRC-funded project in the area of speech perception and cognitive listening. The purpose of the project is to understand the effect of cognitive load and dual-tasking on low-level speech and-non-speech perception. Data collection will be based on perceptual methods and auditory psychophysical tests.
You will contribute to every stage of the project. You will be responsible for designing the experiments, creating, recording, and editing the materials for all experiments. You will also be in charge of recruiting and testing participants, assist with data analysis and dissemination of the results. It is also expected that you will lead some of the studies.
You will have a PhD degree in speech and hearing science or psycholinguistics. A good command of experimental designs in cognitive science and statistical analysis is essential. Experience in psychophysics (including programming psychophysical experiments), psycholinguistics, and/or speech perception is highly desirable, as is experience of publishing in scientific journals. The project will be carried out in the laboratory of Professor Sven Mattys at York.
Enquiries can also be made to HR Recruitment via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Salary will be £31,604 a year and the post is available full time on a fixed term contract for 2 years.
