Applications invited for Ph.D. Program in Speech & Hearing Bioscience and Technology

Future Ph.D. students, 

The Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology (HST) invites
applications for admission to the Ph.D. Program in Speech and Hearing
Bioscience and Technology (SHBT) for the fall semester 2007.

Synthesizing engineering, medicine and science, the program offers a
rigorous curriculum that trains students to apply research methods, design
techniques, and clinical knowledge to the study of the physical, cognitive,
and biological systems underlying language and communication.  With access
to the resources of MIT, Harvard and its eleven teaching hospitals, this
program provides students with a vast range of research and educational

The program emphasizes interdisciplinary education that spans physics,
biology, psychology, linguistics, medicine and engineering, including
clinical coursework.

No prior experience in speech and hearing is required.  Applicants should
have strong analytical skills and at least a bachelor's degree in a relevant
field.  Course work in the first year assumes familiarity with calculus,
college level physics, statistics, and biology.

Students are accepted based on interests, academic background, intellectual
ability, curiosity, motivation, and character.  US citizens and permanent
residents are eligible for fellowship support of up to three years from the
National Institutes of Health.  Applications are due December 15, 2007.
