The Dept. of Linguistics and Languages at Michigan State University 
is pleased to announce 2 Graduate Assistant positions in Cognitive 
Science for the academic year 2002-2003. Students must be accepted 
into both Ph.D. program in Linguistics and the Graduate 
Specialization in Cognitive Science. Funding is available for 4 
years subject to continued satisfactory progress in both programs.

The Cognitive Science program has also recently received an

program is the interdisciplinary study of cognition in humans, 
animals, and intelligent machines. Students in Linguistics are also 
encouraged to apply to the IGERT program.

We invite applications from interested graduate students in 
Linguistics, Psychology, Computer Science, Philosophy or other 
related fields who would like to join an interdisciplinary group of 
cognitive scientists to work of issues related to language.
