PhD positions in Bilingualism, Language and Cognition at UT El Paso

Iva Ivanova’s Language and Communication Lab within the Bilingualism, Language and Cognition Area at the University of Texas at El Paso Department of Psychology is accepting applicants to the UTEP Psychology PhD program (how to apply). The lab investigates bilingual and monolingual lexical, syntactic and discourse processing with a variety of methods. Current projects are listed here, and lab facilities are described here. PhD students are fully funded with teaching assistantships, research assistantships, and/or fellowships.

The Bilingualism group at UTEP (Consortium for Scientific Research on Bilingualism) has faculty members from several departments with active research programs addressing bilingualism from a multitude of perspectives. PhD students in the Language and Communication Lab can be co-advised by Consortium faculty with compatible interests.

UTEP is a hotspot for research on bilingualism. It is located on the U.S.-Mexico border and offers a unique bicultural and bilingual environment. This makes it easy to recruit Spanish-English bilinguals with a diverse range of experiential and proficiency characteristics, as well as English and Spanish monolinguals from the same community for comparison.

And, El Paso is a friendly place with a unique culture. It is getting hip but still inexpensive, one of the safest US cities, and sunny three hundred days a year.

Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Iva Ivanova ( for informal inquiries.
Applications must be submitted by December 1st, 2020.

The event is finished.
