A Research Associate post is available to work on a new project aiming to understand early communicative development in hearing and deaf infants. The project is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), and is led by Dr Teodora Gliga (UEA), at University of East Anglia. This project will tackle the question of how access to language shapes early cognitive development. Compared to deaf infants with deaf parents, many deaf infants born to hearing parents experience reduced access to the main language used by their family. We will investigate the strategies parents and infants develop to enhance communication. We will develop new methods for quantifying conceptual development in hearing and deaf infants and new paradigms that capture learning in naturalistic interaction.

You will work in our state-of-the art Developmental labs, equipped with EEG, eye-tracking and fNIRS systems. You will be responsible for recruiting participants, behavioural and EEG data collection from infants and toddlers as well as contribute to experiment design and data analysis, commensurate with your expertise. You will liaise with local charities and service providers for deaf children and young people, and contribute to science communication activities. You will hold a degree in Psychology, Linguistics or an equivalent discipline (preferably at MSc level), and have experience working with developmental populations as well as satisfying all the essential criteria detailed in the person specification for this post. You will have experience in British Sign Language, preferably Level 3 or above.

This post is available from 1 February 2023, on a full-time basis for a fixed term period of 2 years to 30 January 2025, with the possibility of extension. The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.  Appointment will be subject to a criminal record check at Enhanced level from the Disclosure and Barring Service, including a check of the Child and Adult Barred Lists.
