UCL is one of the world's leading multidisciplinary universities. It is a modern, outward-looking institution, committed to engaging with the major issues of our times. The Division of Psychology and Language Sciences, part of the university’s Faculty of Brain Sciences, is internationally one of the largest and most prestigious aggregations of researchers and teachers in the behavioural sciences.
The Research Department of Speech Hearing and Phonetic Sciences (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/psychlangsci/research/speech) is one of the largest groupings of researchers addressing the perception and production of speech in the UK. It has outstanding facilities in a recently refurbished building and is co-located with the Research Departments of Linguistics, Language and Communication, and Developmental Science. All of these departments are part of the Division of Psychology and Language Sciences (www.ucl.ac.uk/psychlangsci) within the newly formed Brain Sciences Faculty of UCL. The department has extensive laboratory facilities for research in speech and language including an anechoic chamber, 7 double-walled audiometric rooms (see http://www.ucl.ac.uk/psychlangsci/research-facilities) and a newly installed a 64-channel EEG/ABR facility. Staff also have access to the divisionally-hosted BUCNI fMRI scanner and through collaborative links within the Faculty can secure access to MEG.
The department is part of a thriving research community and has close links with many other departments and institutes within UCL, particularly the UCL Ear Institute and the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience. The Division of Psychology and Language Sciences holds a SWAN Silver award for good employment practice for women working in science, engineering and technology.
