International Postdoctoral Position in Embodied Cognition and Reading
- 17 May 2021
The Department of Language and Communication, University of Southern Denmark (SDU) invites applications for a postdoctoral research position starting 15 August 2021, or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is for 1.5 years.
The position is embedded in the externally-funded research project: “How do University College Students Read?: A Cognitive Video-Ethnographic Study”. This project investigates students’ natural reading practices (in print or digitally) and is methodological and theoretically multidisciplinary. It uses cognitive video-ethnography, interviews, and interaction-analysis within a radical embodied, ecological framework.
We are seeking a highly motivated person with a Ph.D. in the areas of embodied cognition and/or embodied learning. The applicant must have experience with empirical work and should be able to engage with theories of cognition (and language) within an ecological, embodied framework. The data would primarily be Danish and, thus, a knowledge of Danish is essential. The postdoctoral researcher would be expected to explore authentic reading video-data from an embodied cognitive perspective.
Further information about the project and position can be obtained from Associate Professor Sarah Bro Trasmundi, email: email@example.com
