Description:

The department of Linguistics and the department of Brain & Cognitive Sciences at the University of Rochester invite applications from students interested in pursuing a fully-funded joint PhD with a primary focus in Linguistics and a secondary focus in Brain & Cognitive Sciences. The department of Linguistics (http://www.ling.rochester.edu/) combines strengths in formal linguistics--syntax, semantics, pragmatics, phonetics and laboratory 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 (http://www.rochester.edu/college/cls/).

Students interested in a joint Linguistics/Brain & Cognitive Sciences PhD program should apply through Linguistics here (https://apply.grad.rochester.edu/apply/). Applications received by January 15, 2016 will receive fullest consideration. For further information, please contact Jeff Runner (jeffrey.runnerrochester.edu).
