Graduate Trainee Positions for Research on the Mental Lexicon

The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada has
awarded a Major Collaborative Research Initiatives grant to a team of
researchers at the University of Alberta, the University of Montreal,
McGill University, and the University of Windsor for a project
entitled, "Words in the Mind, Words in the Brain".

This five-year multi-disciplinary project brings together an
international team of 40 linguists, psychologists, and neurolinguists
to investigate the representation and processing of words in the mind
and brain.

The award also provides full research stipends and travel support for
master's and doctoral students at each of the four Canadian
institutions indicated. Interested applicants should have a background
in one or more of the following fields: linguistics, psychology,
communication sciences and disorders, rehabilitation science, or
computing science.

On the basis of their background and interests, students will be
encouraged to apply to the appropriate departments at one of the four
universities involved, but the integrated nature of the project will
provide students with the opportunity to complement studies in their
home department with specialized training at one or more of the other
collaborating institutions.

To be considered for positions commencing in either September, 2002,
or in January, 2003, please send a short e-mail message to the Mental
