Applications are invited for a full-time 26-month fixed-term post of Postdoctoral Researcher (Grade 7) on the project Do Infants Learn New Words from Educational Picture Books? The post is funded by a Nuffield Foundation award (EDO/43951) to Dr Jeanne Shinskey (Royal Holloway Baby Lab) and Dr Jessie Ricketts (Language and Reading Acquisition Lab).

The role involves testing whether 1-year-olds learn new words from sharing ‘first words’ picture books at home with their parents, and how the book’s tactile and pictorial features affect such learning.

Applicants should have a PhD/DPhil in Psychology or related discipline, or thesis submitted by start date. The start date is tentatively January 2021, depending on Covid-19.

Closing Date: Midnight, 10 Dec 2020
