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).
