DTU CALIDIE - Doctoral Candidate (PhD student) in neuro-cognitive studies of numerical cognition in multilingual contexts

The University of Luxembourg is a multilingual, international research University.

The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Luxembourg has a job opening within its Institute for Cognitive Science and Assessment:

DTU CALIDIE - Doctoral Candidate (PhD student) in neuro-cognitive studies of numerical cognition in multilingual contexts 

  • 50014136 –(R-AGR-3079-23-C) DTU CALIDIE
  • Fixed-term contract 14 months, renewable up to 3 years, full-time (40h/week) (possibility of renewal for a fourth year)
  • Student status (36 months studies programme)
  • Preferred starting date: June 1, 2019

The successful candidate will work on a project entitled: “The influence of language profiles on numerical and (pre-)mathematical learning”. The candidate will be member of the Doctoral Training Unit “Capitalising on Linguistic Diversity in Education” (CALIDIE). The project is supported by the Luxembourg National Research Fund (PRIDE15/10921377/CALIDIE/Hu).

The project will systematically take advantage of the exceptionally rich multilingual and multicultural setting of the Luxembourgish population and school system. Based on our expertise in studying the development of numerical cognition with a cognitive neuroscience approach (e.g. Hoffmann et al., 2013; Méjias and Schiltz, 2013; Van Rinsveld, 2017), the PhD project will examine numerical development, with a special focus on the children’s language profiles. This will provide important new insights into cognitive processes underlying mathematical learning and its interaction with language.
