PhD positions in Bayesian models of Language Acquisition

We have several positions available for PhD students in our NSF-funded
research project on Bayesian models of language acquisition. Applicants
should have a solid mathematical and/or computational background and will
work on projects such as data analysis using forced-alignment speech-
recognition technology and developing Bayesian models of language
acquisition and language and vision. We expect to provide successful
applicants with full financial support and a cross-disciplinary training
program with a strong emphasis on Computer Science and/or Applied
Mathematics. Applications for admission should be made to the graduate
program of the Department of Cognitive and Linguistic Sciences at Brown
University by January 2, 2008.

For further information contact Mark Johnson or Katherine Demuth
(Katherine_Demuthbrown.edu).

Applications Deadline: 02-Jan-2008
