Subject: Neurolinguistics: PhD Student, McGill University, Canada


Institution/Organization: McGill University
Department: School of Communication Sciences & Disorders
Level: PhD
Duties: Research
Job Rank: PhD
Specialty Areas: Cognitive Science; Neurolinguistics; Pragmatics
Emotional communication

Description:

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship available in the Neuropragmatics
and Emotion Lab (www.mcgill.ca/pell_lab) at McGill University beginning
September, 2007.

The appropriate student will share general research interests with members of
the lab which touch on the communication of emotion or attitudes in the human
voice and/or through spoken language. The recipient will be expected to apply
and register for a PhD in the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders at
McGill University (Montréal, Canada) and will be supervised by Dr. Marc Pell.

Applicants must possess a first-class honours degree (minimum Bachelor-level
equivalent) in Linguistics, Psychology, Communication Disorders, or a related
discipline, preferrably with courses in psycho/neuro-linguistics. The specific
research focus should be developed by the student but will probably centre on
defining acoustic, perceptual, and/or neuro-cognitive components for
understanding or expressing emotive qualities in speech during natural
communication; disorders of emotive communication following acquired brain
damage; or the influences of emotion and affect on normal and/or disordered
language processing.

Funding is for a maximum of three years and will consist of an annual stipend of
CAD $20,000 plus support for presenting work at research meetings.

As a first step, please register your interest to compete for the studentship by
sending your CV and a detailed cover letter describing your research interests
and academic goals to:
Dr. Marc Pell
McGill University, SCSD
1266, ave. des Pins Ouest
Montreal (QC) H3G 1A8
Canada
(Email: marc.pellmcgill.ca)

All completed applications received by December 4, 2006 will be considered for
the studentship. Please note that language and neuroscience research are
strategic priorities at McGill, and all students admitted to the School of
Communication Sciences & Disorders benefit from collaborations and extensive
facilities available as members of the Centre for Research on Language, Mind,
and Brain (www.crlmb.mcgill.ca). For complete information about the School's
mission and advance details about applying for the PhD degree, please visit
