Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Support Description: The department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences and the department of Linguistics at the University of Rochester invite applications from students interested in pursuing a joint PhD in Brain and 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 - 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. 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), as soon as possible, and no later January 15, 2014. Please mention in your application your interest in pursuing the joint degree with Linguistics.
