ESRC STUDENTSHIPS FOR MRes+PhD/PhD: UCL Centre for Human Communication

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: Friday 29th January 2010

The UCL Centre for Human Communication (CHC) is pleased to announce that it has
been awarded two quota ESRC studentships for the academic year commencing
September 2010 and is additionally able to nominate applications for an ESRC
open competition studentship.

ESRC studentships provide up to four years full funding for postgraduate
training. They cover tuition fees and include a maintenance grant.

The CHC will consider applicants for 1+3 quota and open studentships for the
MRes in Speech, Language and Cognition followed by PhD research within the CHC
group. Information about the MRes can be found at http://tinyurl.com/yb9p5d2

We will also consider applicants who have completed relevant Masters-level
training for a 3 year PhD studentship within the CHC.

The CHC is a virtual centre that exists to foster interaction amongst UCL staff
who are involved in research on human language and communication. Research spans
an unusual range of disciplines, from those traditionally considered to lie in
the humanities and social sciences, to those of a more scientific, engineering
and medical aspect. Areas studied include, among others:
-basic aspects of hearing, speech and language, both in the adult and the
developing child;
-linguistic theory concerning syntax, phonology and pragmatics;
-speech production and speech perception;
-acquisition of first and later-learned languages;
-sign languages;
•-developmental language disorders like stuttering, dyslexia and specific
language impairment;
•-acquired language disorders like aphasia and dysarthria;
•-hearing impairments and their remediation through training and prostheses
(hearing aids and cochlear implants);
•-speech recognition and speech synthesis by computer.

More information about the CHC can be found at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/chc/

To apply:
Applicants should send a CV, covering letter and the names and email addresses
of two referees to Dr Bronwen Evans at bronwen.evansucl.ac.uk.

Applications by email are preferred.

The covering letter should include an outline of the applicant's principal
research interests. Applications for the 3 year PhD studentships only must also
outline a plan of the intended research. Ideally, this plan should have been
discussed with a potential supervisor based at UCL. Staff details can be found
at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/psychlangsci/staff

All applications are subject to the ESRC's nationality and residency
restrictions and applicants are also asked to indicate in their submission that
they meet these criteria. Information about these are available in the ESRC's
Postgraduate Funding Guide, which applicants are strongly advised to consult
when completing their application. This can be downloaded at

Deadline: Friday 29th January 2009. Applications received after this date will
still be considered for admission but will be too late to be considered for the
ESRC quota studentship.

Applications Deadline: 29-Jan-2010
