Training Grant

Language research and training in the Department of Psychology will be supported in part by an interdisciplinary program for Training in Language: Integrating Acquisition and Adult Performance, funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.

This program aims to train predoctoral and postdoctoral students broadly in psycholinguistic research and theory, so that they are able to integrate research in areas of both child language acquisition and adult performance.

Predoctoral students admitted into the program will be supported by a combination of program training funds, University Fellowships, faculty research grant funds, and in a small number of semesters, teaching assistantships so as to allow students to gain teaching experience.

Postdoctoral fellowships are typically for one year and renewable for an additional year contingent on satisfactory performance.

Questions about faculty research should be directed to the individual faculty listed here, and general questions about the training program can be directed to Maryellen MacDonald.
