- Language and speech technologies.
- Formal theories of language acquisition and evolutionary linguistics.
- Computational neuroscience.

Other related fields might still be eligible provided there are
strong enough candidates for them.


- the positions will be filled in under the form of a scholarship
(rather than a work contract),
- Spaniards are not eligible,

from developing countries will be prioritized,

- some command of Spanish is welcome,
- the scheme is highly competitive.


- candidates born after December 15, 1970,
- having graduated not earlier than October 2003,
- with an excellent CV and potential for leadership,
- having resided in their home country continuously since January 2005,
- duration of the position: October 2006 - September 2008,
- candidates should have the expectation to follow an academic career
in their home country after the period in Spain.


- monthly salary amounting 1,200 euros free of taxes,
- travel grant amounting 500-1,600 euros, depending on the
candidate's country of origin,
- health insurance coverage, not including pharmaceutics.


It will consist of 2 steps:

- a pre-selection based on CV and carried out by the host institute,
- an on-line application (form + CV + research project + letters of
reference), to be assessed externally by the funding agency.


Expressions of interest are welcome until November 25, 2005. They
should contain the researcher's CV and mention "2005-13" in the
subject line. The outcome of the preselection will be reported

December 15, 2005.
