Description:

The department of Brain & Cognitive Sciences and the department of Linguistics at
the University of Rochester invite applications from students interested in pursuing a
joint PhD in Brain & Cognitive Sciences and Linguistics. The department of
Linguistics (http://www.ling.rochester.edu/) combines strengths in formal linguistics--
syntax, semantics, pragmatics, phonetics and phonology--with experimental and
empirical methodologies. The department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences
(http://www.bcs.rochester.edu/) combines strengths in language research--language
processing, language acquisition, brain and language--with vision, and neuroscience,
which includes computational neuroscience, learning and plasticity. The language
researchers in these departments--along with those in Computer Science and
Philosophy--constitute Rochester's Center for Language Sciences.

This year we are particularly interested in applicants who want to investigate the
formal syntactic and semantic properties of language structure using experimental
and empirical techniques. We welcome applications from students interested in
working in the interdisciplinary environment provided by the Center for Language
Sciences, which encourages using the tools of both linguistics and the other
cognitive sciences in investigating linguistic problems. Students interested in the
joint Brain & Cognitive Sciences/Linguistics PhD program should apply through the
Brain & Cognitive Sciences department
(http://www.bcs.rochester.edu/graduate/guidelines.html), by January 15, 2011 (note
that though the web page lists January 1 as the deadline, applications for the joint
degree received by January 15 will be given full consideration). Please mention your
interest in the joint BCS/LIN degree in your application. For further information,
please see the Center for Language Sciences web pages
(http://www.bcs.rochester.edu/cls/) or contact Jeff Runner
(runnerling.rochester.edu).
