Extension to Friday 14 April 2017 for PhD Bursary.

Applications are invited on any topic related to CASL’s current research, but bursary applications which address one of our three priority topics for 2017 will be preferred:
1. Acquisition of speech systems, including bi-lingual or bi-dialectal learners
2. Voice and speech in healthy older people or people with Parkinson’s
3. Clinical remediation of speech disorder using articulatory feedback

Details of the centre’s strategic goals are available on our CASL website, along with links to current projects, publications, students and staff. Applications from qualified Speech and Language Therapists or non-clinicians are both welcome.

The successful applicant will be working within a small, highly skilled team of subject experts in a world-class laboratory and research centre. The bursaries cover:

- full waiver of tuition fees.
- an annual stipend of £14,553 lasting 3 years for full-time study, or half pro-rata for 6 years for part-time study.
- a research budget of £2,000 to cover project expenses and travel.
- Membership of CASL research centre and access to further, competitive, research funding

The deadline for applications is Friday April 14th (extended from 31 March) 2017.

More information on CASL and details on how to apply for a bursary (or to the Graduate School using funding from elsewhere) can be found via the following URLs. (currently frozen due to web redesign, so needing some updates!)

In addition to the bursary opportunity, CASL also welcomes applications from students applying for or who have already secured external financial support. We also co-supervise students registered for their degree at other institutions. Self-funded or externally registered students would have more flexibility in the topic of their research and should contact relevant potential supervisors to discuss such proposals.
