EPSRC 3 year PhD Studentship
Department of Psychology, University of Dundee, United Kingdom
Start date: October 2003

The project will focus primarily on aspects of human language
production, addressing the issue of the conditions under which
producing an utterance may draw upon 'off the shelf' expressions that
are pre-stored in long term memory rather than involving full
grammatical encoding. The project will explore the relationship
between these two language production routes. This question has
general psycholinguistic relevance and is also important in the
context of developing synthetic speech aids for people who are unable
to speak. The project will employ a wide range of different research
methods, such as reaction time and head-mounted eye-tracking

The department has a strong research reputation in language and
cognition. Joint supervision will be provided by Professor John
Todman, Dr Roger van Gompel and Dr Christoph Scheepers. Potential
applicants are welcome to make informal contact with any of the

Students interested in the field of theoretical and applied
psycholinguistics, and with a solid background in experimental
psychology, are welcome to apply.

Stipend: 9000 per annum.
