The post will be associated with the project Acquiring Figurative Meanings: A Study in Developmental Pragmatics, funded by the Research Council of Norway. The aim of the project is to investigate children’s developing ability to use and understand figurative language appropriately in context, focusing on metonymy and irony. 

We seek applications from candidates with a strong background in experimental and/or theoretical pragmatics, psycholinguistics or developmental psychology to work on the sub-project on irony development.
