- Speech planning and production at the initiation of utterances [BUR19-01c]
- The perception and production of typical disfluencies in speech [BUR19-01d]

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 highly skilled team of subject experts in a world-class laboratory* and will receive:
- Full waiver of tuition fees.
- An annual stipend of £15,000 lasting 3 years for full-time study, or pro-rata.
