The Department of Humanities at Northumbria University invites applications for
2012-13 entry to its MRes in Language and Cognition. The MRes is a masters
programme based around individual students' research projects. The MRes is
available as a full-time one-year or two-year part-time programme (please note
that the studentships only apply to the one year full-time route). The
Department offers up to seven studentships to cover the cost of fees. These are
open to home/EU and International students.

The MRes in Language and Cognition is a unique interdisciplinary programme which
builds on two areas of particular research strength at Northumbria: cognitive
linguistics (including social cognition and cognitive approaches to discourse
analysis) in the Department of Humanities and psycholinguistics in the
Department of Psychology (School of Life Sciences). The programme explores the
relationship between language and cognition from a linguistic and psychological
point of view and introduces students to a broad range of research
methodologies, from corpus analyses to eye tracking and ERPs. It will appeal to
graduates of English language, modern languages, linguistics, psychology, and
cognitive science. Although it is a stand-alone degree, it is anticipated that a
significant proportion of the students will continue on to a PhD; hence there is
a strong emphasis on research methods and independent research.

The deadline for the studentship application is Friday 22 June 2012 with
interviews due to take place in the week beginning 2 July 2012.

Informal enquiries can be addressed to the Programme Director, Professor Regina
Weinert, regina.weinertnorthumbria.ac.uk
