Stipend: $500CAD honorarium

The Centre for Advanced Research in Experimental and Applied Linguistics (ARiEAL) is inviting applications to serve on its Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC). There are five open positions due to begin on July 1, 2023, for a three-year renewable term.

The Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) will provide advice to the Director of ARiEAL related to the scientific and scholarly priorities and direction of the Centre. The SAC will be consulted annually or at the discretion of the Director. In addition, each committee member is expected to (physically or virtually) visit ARiEAL at least once during the three-year term. That visit will include giving a public talk based on their expertise and the interests of the ARiEAL community. Expenses will be covered by ARiEAL. Following the three-year term, each committee member will be compensated with an honorarium of $500CAD.

Applicants will have expertise in cognitive science of language and/or related disciplines, such as linguistics, psycholinguistics, etc. Applicants will also have an excellent record of (1) interdisciplinary and collaborative research, (2) academic publications and presentations, (3) working with research centres (where leading a research centre is not a prerequisite), and (4) mentorship and training. Candidates with an outstanding record of ethical community-engaged research, early career researchers, postdoctoral fellows, and advanced graduate students are encouraged to apply.

ARiEAL is a research centre that brings together a community of researchers ranging from undergraduate trainees to established scholars and enables researchers to excel in their problem-driven language science research in fundamental, experimental, and applied linguistics. The Centre is housed within the Faculty of Humanities at McMaster University. ARiEAL’s vision, values, mission statement, and 2023-28 strategic plan can be found here.
