The Research Assistant will be working in the NCN Project Phonation in L1 and L2 speech , funded by the Polish National Science Centre (NCN), project (UMO-2021 / 41 / B / HS2 / 00239).

The aim of the project is to explore questions related to the use of non-modal phonation (e.g. creaky voice) in Polish, and the status of acoustic aspects of voice quality as a part of language structure, on the basis of evidence from L1 Polish and L2 English.

The Research Assistant’s duties will involve working with the rest of the Research Team (under the supervision of PI prof.

Geoffrey Schwartz) in collecting speech recordings, annotating speech recordings, extraction of acoustic data from recordings of speech, and preparing (and carrying out) perception experiments.

The stipend is 5000 PLN gross per month (a little more than 3000 PLN after taxes).
