Call for a two 2-year post-doctoral position

Principal investigator: Serge Pinto, Ph.D


Dysarthria in Parkinson’s disease: Lusophony vs. Francophony comparison (FraLusoPark)

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is classically characterized by a symptomatic triad that includes rest tremor, akinesia and hypertonia and although the motor expression of the symptoms involves mainly the limbs, the muscles implicated in speech production are also subject to specific dysfunctions. Motor speech disorders, so-called dysarthria, can thus be developed by PD patients. The main objective of our project is to evaluate the physiological parameters (acoustics), perceptual markers (intelligibility) and psychosocial impact of dysarthric speech in PD, in the context of language (French vs. Portuguese) modulations. PD patients will be enrolled in the study in Aix-en-Provence, France and Lisbon, Portugal. The proposed position refers to the data acquisition and analysis in the French site (Aix-en-Provence).

In order to achieve the goals of this project, 1 post-doctoral position is proposed to a young and dynamic researcher. The candidate, who should have experience in speech sciences research (acoustics, perception, prosody), will participate to the acquisition and analysis of speech data.

This project benefits from a bilateral ANR/FCT financial support (for the French side: project n° ANR-13-ISH2-0001-01).


Interested candidates should contact the principal investigator by sending:

-          a detailed CV

-          a letter of motivation

-          letters of recommendation (optional)


Duration of the position: 2 years (full-time)

Monthly salary: 2 000 € net

Application deadline: 2014, September 30th

Starting date: 2014, November 1st
