Twelve Early Stage Researcher positions: Understanding and predicting developmental language abilities and disorders in multilingual Europe (PredictAble)

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Innovative Training Networks (ITN) “PredictAble” invites applications for twelve positions for Early Stage Researchers (ESRs), available from September 1st, 2015. The network studies the cognitive mechanisms that underlie typical and atypical development of spoken and written language taking a cross-linguistic perspective with a unique and novel combination of cutting-edge approaches and techniques for studying mono- and bilingual children (http://www.uni-potsdam.de/predictable). Collaborating partners are the University of Potsdam (Germany), CNRS-Université Paris Descartes (France), University of Jyväskylä (Finland), University Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain), and NIRx Medizintechnik GmbH (Berlin, Germany).
