The Postdoctoral Research Training Fellowships in the Education Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh trains Postdoctoral fellows for research careers in educational science with a special emphasis in reading research. The program combines research in classrooms and laboratories using a range of methods (e.g., eye tracking and ERP) to study vocabulary learning and comprehension. Fellows will work on research with training faculty from Psychology and Education in the Reading and Language Group (http://www.lrdc.pitt.edu/ReadLab/ at the Learning Research and Development Center (LRDC; http://www.lrdc.pitt.edu/ ).
