The UCL Institute of Education is seeking to recruit a Research Fellow for a 3-year contract to work with Professor Chloë Marshall (Principal Investigator) on a Leverhulme Trust-funded project entitled “Breaking into sign language: The role of input and individual differences”.
The project aims to investigate how hearing adults learn a sign language, and focuses on what they can learn on their very first exposure to this new language in a new modality. The project comprises two strands. Strand 1 (in collaboration with Dr Vikki Janke, University of Kent) investigates how adult learners of sign use their hands to represent the locations of different objects in different spatial arrangements. Strand 2 (in collaboration with Professor Marianne Gullberg, Lund University, Sweden) investigates how much sign language adults can learn after just a few minutes of viewing sign. The Research Fellow will be appointed to work principally on Strand 2, but will also support some of the research in Strand 1.
The Research Fellow’s duties will include:
