Child Word Learning Study (Supervisor: Dr Jessica Horst)

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship to work on a word learning
project with Dr. Jessica Horst. This study aims to examine young children's
remarkable ability to learn words quickly and apparently effortlessly.
Specifically, we will investigate young children's word learning, focusing on
their early noun vocabulary. Several developmental methodologies will be used to
explore what children learn from the very first time they are exposed to a new
word and the object that it names. We will also study how the word learning
context influences children's abilities to remember newly learned words. The
student will receive training in various developmental research methods and
conduct research with children ages 1-4 years. Applicants with a strong interest
in cognitive development or language acquisition are encouraged to apply.
