The Department of Linguistics within the Division of Social Sciences at UC San Diego seeks an Assistant Project Scientist (non-tenured) to perform psycholinguistics research in the Laboratory for Multimodal Language Development under the direction of Professor Rachel Mayberry.

Project Scientists are academic researchers who are expected to make significant and creative contributions to a research team, but are not necessarily leaders of the research team.

University and public service are encouraged but not required and they do not have formal teaching responsibilities. Appointments and duration vary depending on the length of the research project and availability of funding.

Candidates must have earned their Ph.D. degree in Linguistics, Cognitive Science, Psychology or related field. Qualified candidates should possess:

• Post-doctoral experience in working with and analyzing sign language data
• Demonstrated experience in publishing papers
• Experience in conducting research with deaf and hard of hearing adults and children
