International Seminar on Speech Production 2011

We are pleased to announce that the the ninth International Seminar on 
Speech Production (ISSP'11) will be held in Montreal, Canada from June 20th 
to 23rd, 2011. ISSP'11 is the continuation of a series of seminars dating

Kloster Seeon (2000), Sydney (2003), Ubatuba (2006), and Strasbourg (2008). 
Several aspects of speech production will be covered, such as phonology, 
phonetics, linguistics, mechanics, acoustics, physiology, motor control, 
neurosciences and computer science.

For this edition, a special session will be organized in honor of Dr. 
Joseph Perkell, for his contribution to the field.

Looking forward to your venue in Montreal in 2011!

12-month job offer in Lyon 2 University, France.

Applications are invited for a 12-month full-time Postdoctoral Position in 
experimental phonetics, psycholinguistics and neuroscience in Lyon, France. 
The post-doc is part of an exciting new project (funded by the Agence 
Nationale de la Recherche) whose aim is to explore the behavioural and 
electrophysiological correlates of 'atypical' phonemic contrasts (derived 
contrasts, contrasts restricted to a certain type of lexicon, etc.) in an 
attempt to provide strong empirical arguments of potential interest to 
phonologists and linguists. The successful applicant will have a PhD in 
experimental phonetics - withstrong emphasis on experiments - or a PhD in 
cognitive sciences/neuroscience -with particular focus on the perception 
and representation of speech sounds. Among other things, the post involves 
travelling to English-speaking countries(Scotland and Ireland) to carry out 
behavioural experiments and recordings;native speakers of English are 
therefore very welcome to apply. Workingknowledge of French will be 
considered an asset. Given that a substantial partof the project has to do 
with EEG, the successful candidate is expected to befamiliar with this 
technique as well as the Matlab computing environment. To apply, please 
send a CV, brief statement of research interests by email to: 
emmanuel.ferragne at univ-paris-diderot.fr in PDF. Please also arrange for 
two letters of recommendation to be sent to the same address. Project

Intonational Variation in Arabic. 
تباين التنغيم في اللهجات العربية 

The IVAr project will create a corpus of Arabic speech recordings in which 
speakers record a parallel set of sentences, stories and conversations. A 
basic dataset will be collected with 18-24 year olds in five regions of the 
Arab world, and in two of these regions an in-depth survey will collect 
additional data with older speakers (50+) and in neighbouring cities.

will provide the basis for publication of descriptions of the typical 
intonation patterns in individual dialects, and comparisons among them. 

You will conduct fieldwork, undertake both quantitative auditory/acoustic 
phonetic and qualitative data analysis (to include prosodic transcription 
in the Autosegmental- Metrical framework), and participate in the 
dissemination of findings. You will hold or will have submitted (prior to
