In conjunction with our institutional partners, the Department of Linguistics at 
Northwestern University invites applications for graduate fellowships in linguistics 
and interdisciplinary research in language.  All admitted students receive a 5 year 
funding commitment (subject to satisfactory progress towards the degree) 
including tuition, a 12-month stipend, and health insurance.  Fellowships are 
available for both US citizens and non-citizens. Students have access to a variety 
of institutional resources for supporting student research projects and professional 
travel.

Northwestern has a vibrant community of researchers actively working on a wide 
variety of issues in language structure and processing, utilizing a diverse range of 
methods and populations.   

Issues:
-Structure of linguistic systems within and across levels: Pragmatics, Semantics, 
Syntax, Morphology, Phonology, Phonetics
-Perception, production and acquisition of first and second languages
-Dynamics of language: diachronic change; experience-related plasticity
-Language and music: Parallels and interactions

Methods:
-Statistical modeling; probabilistic approaches to language structure and 
processing
-Formal/mathematical theories of linguistic systems
-Experimental studies of language; psycholinguistics
-Acoustic phonetics; prosody and intonation
-Machine learning and natural language processing; corpus analysis
-Functional and structural neuroimaging; electrophysiology

Populations:
-Mono- and multilingual
-Infant, young adult and elderly
-Acquired and developmental disorders
