Applications are invited for up to two funded Ph.D. studentships for the study
of language development. The students will be attached to the Max Planck Child
Study Centre and registered for a Ph.D. in the School of Psychological Sciences
at the University of Manchester. The Child Study Centre is run by Professor
Elena Lieven and is funded by the Department of Developmental and Comparative
Psychology, directed by Professor Michael Tomasello, at the Max Planck Institute
for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, Germany. Supervision of PhD students is
done by Professor Lieven and Tomasello with other staff in the School of

Research in the Centre focuses on the development of language (especially
