The Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology (HST) invites
applications for admission to the PhD Program in Speech and Hearing Bioscience
and Technology (SHBT) for the fall semester 2008.
Synthesizing engineering, medicine and science, the program offers a rigorous
curriculum that trains students to apply research methods, design techniques,
and clinical knowledge to the study of the physical, cognitive, and biological
systems underlying language and communication. With access to the resources of
MIT, Harvard, and its eleven teaching hospitals, this program provides students
with a vast range of research and educational opportunities.
The program emphasizes interdisciplinary education that spans physics, biology,
psychology, linguistics, medicine and engineering, including clinical coursework.
No prior experience in speech and hearing is required. Applicants should have
strong analytical skills and at least a bachelor's degree in a relevant field.
Course work in the first year assumes familiarity with calculus, college level
physics, statistics, and biology.
Students are accepted based on interests, academic background, intellectual
ability, curiosity, motivation, and character. US citizens and permanent
residents are eligible for fellowship support of up to three years from the
National Institutes of Health. More information about the SHBT program is
available online at the website listed above.
If you have any questions about the program or the application process, please
contact the admissions chair, Prof. Chris Brown. We look forward to your
Applications Deadline: 15-Dec-2007
