ABOUT GHENT UNIVERSITY

Employing more than 8,000 people, it is actively involved in education and research, management and administration, as well as technical and social service provision on a daily basis.

The Department of Translation, Interpreting, and Communication at Ghent University is looking for scientific staff, to be employed within a term of 18 months (12 months for postdoctoral researchers) and work in the field of psycholinguistics, conducting research on verbal and non-verbal communication in bilinguals and deception. An initial study will scrutinise the behaviour of bilinguals when engaging in (emotional and non-emotional) conversations in both languages. Specifically, it will, among others, look at hand gestures, body posture, facial (micro)expressions, and other non-verbal language. At the same time, verbal language, such as vocabulary, sentence structure, voice timbre, and rate of speech, will also be analysed. Secondly, these features will be compared with characteristics of deception. A subsequent study will look at whether bilinguals exhibit the same verbal and non-verbal behaviour when trying to deceive in their first and second language.
