PhD studentship on imitation in speech at UCL

Dear colleagues,

Would you mind forwarding this to any interested students (UK and EU only)? 

(Inquiries can be made through the email address listed below or to me directly at patti.adank@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)


Patti Adank
School of Psychological Sciences
University of Manchester, UK

>From June 1:
Speech, Hearing and Phonetic Sciences
Division of Psychology and Language Sciences


PhD Studentship (Teaching Assistant Post)
Department of Speech, Hearing and Phonetic Sciences, UCL
A demonstratorship is available for the academic year commencing September 2013. The post provides three years full funding including tuition fees at the UK/EU level and the equivalent of a maintenance grant. The Post-holder will be expected to contribute to teaching or support of the BSc Speech Sciences and MSc Speech and Language Science degrees.

The successful candidate will register for the MPhil/PhD under the supervision of Dr Patti Adank, who is currently at the University of Manchester and who will be moving to UCL in June 2013. The student would ideally work on a project investigating the cognitive and neural mechanisms underlying imitation in speech using behavioural and neuroimaging methods (electromyography and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging). Applicants, by the start of the post, must hold an undergraduate or masters degree in a relevant discipline (e.g., Psychology, Speech and Hearing Science, or Neuroscience) that is equivalent to a 1st class or 2:1 standard in the UK system.

Applicants should send a CV, covering letter and the names and email addresses of two referees. The covering letter should include details of how you could contribute to teaching or support of the above degrees, an outline of your principle research interests and a plan of intended research focusing globally on the topic outlined above. The applications, as well as any inquiries about the project, should be emailed to Natalie Berry at n.berry@xxxxxxxxxx 

Deadline: Friday 1 March 2013
