Prospective Lab Managers/Postgraduate Research Assistants:

If you are or are hoping to be a lab manager, check out The Manager’s Manual, created by our wonderful grad student Nicole!

Prospective Postdocs and Visiting Researchers:

Our group is too small to train visitors or (unenrolled) students in experimental methods, and there is no infrastructure here in the psychology department for visitors in theoretical linguistics. On rare but rewarding occasions, we have welcomed visitors who actively contribute to experimental or modeling work on language for shorter or longer visits. If you are interested, please see the Princeton website for information about formal and financial requirements for visiting graduate students or visiting postdocs.

For German postdocs or researchers no more than 12 years since PhD, it is possible to apply for funding from the Humboldt Foundation’s Feodor Lynen Research Fellowship.

For racial or ethnic minorities and/or women in experimental psychology or modeling, Princeton appoints 12 postdocs or associate research scholars for 1-2 years.

For prospective Chinese postdocs, see the Peking-Princeton Postdoctoral Program

If you are instead interested in visiting the linguistics program at Princeton, contact Marie L. Basso <> for information.
