The postdoctoral fellow will develop and implement an independent line of research under the supervision of one or more faculty within the School, depending on focus area of the research (see http://mcgill.ca/scsd/about/faculty-staff/faculty-members) The research area is broadly defined but we are especially interested in applicants wishing to pursue work in bilingualism, human communication neuroscience, and applied/translational research in communication disorders.
