Two Fully Funded PhD Projects in early language learning for EU/UK students
Psychology at Lancaster has two further vacancies for PhD students, funded through the new ESRC International Centre for Language and Communicative Development (LuCiD), a multi-million pound collaboration between the Universities of Lancaster, Liverpool, and Manchester.
The studentship benefits from the vibrant environment of the LuCiD Centre, including opportunities to travel to international laboratories, training in a range of psychological and neurophysiological techniques, frequent research and public engagement meetings, and support from a large team of researchers in language acquisition.
One PhD will investigate language-specific and general-purpose learning mechanisms contributing to early language acquisition, the second will investigate how children understand how words refer to objects and actions in the environment, using EEG techniques with infants.
