3 Psycholinguistics volunteer opportunities (Prof. Ianthi Tsimpli)

Dept. of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics

Three student volunteer opportunities in Psycholinguistics are available in the Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics (University of Cambridge). The volunteers will have the opportunity to be part of a project researching bilingualism and/or language impairment, gaining exposure to data collection and data analysis. The offer is only open to PhD students enrolled at the University of Cambridge.

Volunteers will have the chance to be involved in running eye-tracking experiments with Eyelink 1000 Plus and/or Tobii eye-trackers) and/or reaction times experiments (with Eprime and/or Psychopy) with adult and child participants, and basic statistical data analysis (t-test comparisons, ANOVA, etc.). Volunteers can experience hands-on psycholinguistics research, with opportunities to develop relevant research skills for Master's or PhD studies in the area.

Each volunteer will be supported by close supervision by one of the 3 postdoctoral researchers in Prof. Tsimpli’s lab, Dr. Elaine Schmidt, Dr. Ana Pérez and Dr. Luca Cilibrasi, depending on their profile and research interests.

The volunteer opportunities will be for the duration of 6 weeks for approx. 10 hours per week (according to students schedule). The starting date is flexible and will be agreed with the supervising postdoc, but indicatively the opportunities can start between the beginning of October and the beginning of November. 

To apply for a placement, please submit a 2-page CV and a short paragraph outlining your motivation to Prof. Ianthi Tsimpli (imt20@cam.ac.uk) by 01.10.2017.
