Subject: General Ling - Graduate Fellowships, Brown University

Brown University has a number of different programs that can support

interdisciplinary grad students and post-docs. Language Acquisition
and Language Processing are two of the areas that are actively
supported. The advertisment below describes our NSF IGERT training
program which provides grad student training and post-doc
opportunities. (This program supports US citizens and permanent
residents, but we have additional sources of funding for non-US grad

 Brown University Interdisciplinary Graduate Training Program

 Deadline for Applications: January 1, 2001

Brown University is actively recruiting graduate students for an
NSF-supported Interdisciplinary Graduate Education, Research and
Training (IGERT) program in "Learning and Action in the Face of
Uncertainty: Cognitive, Computational and Statistical Approaches". 

The use of probabilistic models and statistical methods has had a major
impact on our understanding of language, vision, action, and reasoning.
This training program provides students with the opportunity to
integrate a detailed study of human or artificial systems for language
acquisition and use, visual processing, action, and reasoning with
appropriate mathematical and computational models. Students will be
enrolled in one of the three participating departments (Applied
Mathematics, Cognitive & Linguistic Sciences, or Computer Science) and
will follow an interdisciplinary program of courses in topics such as
statistical estimation, cognitive processes, linguistics, and
computational models. The aim of this program is to provide promising
students with a mix of mathematical, computational and experimental
expertise to carry out multidisciplinary collaborative research across
the disciplines of Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, and Cognitive

Interested students should apply to the participating department
closest to their area of interest and expertise, and should indicate
their interest in the IGERT training program in their application.
These NSF funded positions are restricted to US citizens and permanent
residents. Brown University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action
