PhD positions in language at the University of Arizona
Several language faculty in the Departments of Psychology and Speech Language and Hearing Sciences at the University of Arizona are soliciting applications for PhD students to begin in the fall of 2021.

A PhD position is available at the Cognitive Neuroscience of Language Laboratory directed by Dr. Vicky Lai within the Department of Psychology. Our current research focuses are figurative language, emotional language, and the interface between the two, across the life span. We primarily use ERP and fMRI methods, though other techniques such as TMS (MR compatible), pupillometry, and machine learning are available through collaborations with other faculty in Psychology, Biomedical Engineering, and School of Information. Interested applicants should contact Dr. Vicky Lai at and apply here by December 1, 2020.

A PhD position is available in the Child Cognition Lab directed by Dr. Rebecca Gomez. Our current research focuses on infant and child language acquisition at the interface of language and cognitive processes. I am particularly interested in how language acquisition changes as children acquire knowledge of language and as memory abilities develop. Specific areas of interest are statistical learning and word learning. See our publications here. Interested applicants should contact Dr. Rebecca Gomez at and apply here by December 1, 2020.

A PhD position is available at the Language and Neuroimaging Research Laboratory directed by Dr. Aneta Kielar within the Department of Speech Language and Hearing Sciences. The focus of the laboratory is neural basis of language and neurogenic language disorders. We conduct multidisciplinary research that spans several areas including cognitive neuroscience, linguistics and cognitive science. Successful candidates will have an opportunity to conduct research using high density EEG system, fMRI and rTMS. Interested applicants should contact Dr. Aneta Kielar at and apply here. More information about PhD Program can be found here. The application deadlines are February 1st, 2021 for the Fall semester and September 1st for the Spring Semester.
