Description:

Four studentships at UCL Psychology and Language Sciences and UCL Ear
Institute

Applicants should send a CV, covering letter, undergraduate and postgraduate
transcripts, and two reference letters (sent directly by the referees) to Natalie
Wilkins, n.wilkinsucl.ac.uk. Please indicate which studentship is relevant to your
application. Each studentship will cover fees and include a stipend. Applicants
should have a relevant first degree or masters degree equivalent to a 1st class or
high 2:1 standard in the UK system.

1) ESRC quota studentship, 3-year MPhil/PhD or 1+3 including a year of masters
study. Applications will be considered for students interested in experimental
investigations of human communication (e.g., speech, language and
communication; experimental phonetics, linguistics and pragmatics;
developmental and acquired disorders; and hearing impairments).

The 1+3 award will include study in either the MRes in Speech Language and
Cognition (http://tinyurl.com/yb9p5d2), MSc Language Sciences
(http://tinyurl.com/4naauns), or MSc Neuroscience Language and Communication
(http://tinyurl.com/lpk5jg). Applicants should include a description of their principal
research interests. Applicants for the 3-year award must also include an outline
plan of their intended research, ideally discussed with a potential supervisor in
Developmental Science (http://tinyurl.com/6kcywja), Language and
Communication (http://tinyurl.com/6eqeygn), Linguistics
(http://tinyurl.com/6jyqp7g), Speech Hearing and Phonetic Science
(http://tinyurl.com/6gnlvw3), or Deafness Language and Cognition
(http://www.dcal.ucl.ac.uk/).

Applicants must specify how they meet ESRC's eligibility conditions, which
typically require UK residency (http://tinyurl.com/6cumun9).

2) Deafness Research UK 3-year MPhil/PhD studentship: Pitch perception and
production in children with cochlear implants. Supervisors: Dr. Andrew Faulkner
(UCL Speech Hearing and Phonetic Sciences) and Dr. Deborah Vickers (UCL Ear
Institute). This studentship is open to UK and EU residents. Further details at
http://www.ucl.ac.uk/psychlangsci/research/speech/PhD_opportunities/DRUK

3) UCL IMPACT 3-year MPhil/PhD studentship, co-funded by Advanced Bionics:
Contributions of 'virtual channels' to the perception of pitch through a cochlear
implant. Supervisors: Dr. Deborah Vickers (UCL Ear Institute) and Dr. Andrew
Faulkner (UCL Speech Hearing and Phonetic Sciences). This studentship is open
to UK and EU residents. Further details at
http://www.ucl.ac.uk/psychlangsci/research/speech/PhD_opportunities/IMPACT

4) ESRC 3-year MPhil/PhD studentship, linked to a project grant on 'Speaker-
controlled variability in children's speech in interaction'. Supervisors: Prof. Valerie
Hazan (UCL Speech Hearing and Phonetic Sciences) and Dr. Merle Mahon (UCL
Developmental Science).

The aim of the studentship will be to investigate, via acoustic-phonetic analyses of
the speech signal, the clear speech strategies used by 13-14 year old adolescents
when interacting with peers with a hearing impairment. The work will also entail a
detailed analysis of the communication strategies used by adolescents with
hearing impairment when interacting with hearing and hearing-impaired peers. The
studentship will complement work in the main project on the development of clear
speech strategies in older children with normal hearing while communicating in
different types of adverse listening conditions.

The studentship is available as early as 1 June 2011. Applicants must specify how
they meet ESRC's eligibility conditions, which typically require UK residency
(http://tinyurl.com/6cumun9), and will be subject to a Criminal Record Bureau
check.
