 Postgraduate Opportunities




This one-year course covers basic computing skills, prolog, core
linguistics, psycholinguistics, statistics, speech analysis, speech and
language technology systems, and techniques in speech recognition and
synthesis. The SERC (via EPSERC) has accepted the M.Sc. as suitable
for the tenure of its advanced course studentships, for which British
and other EC residents with Honours degrees or equivalent experience are
eligible. Subject to final approval, we expect to have a quota of five
such studentships for the academic year 1994-95.


Applicants with a good Honours degree in any relevant subject and
intending to do Ph.D. research on topics in linguistic theory,
psycholinguistics, and linguistic aspects of speech and language
technology are invited to apply for postgraduate research places in the
Department of Linguistics. The Department has been recognised by the
ESRC for the award of research studentships to British and other EC
nationals. Applicants wishing to apply for an ESRC studentship are
advised to contact the department immediately, as applications must be
submitted through the department to ESRC by 31 March.

The Kingston Press Studentship in Linguistics:
