Several PhD fellowships are available for a newly funded project on the neural and behavioural evidence for children's learning of grammatical morphology

The goal of this project is to better understand the nature of children’s phonological and morphological representations, and how these develop between the ages of 1-7. The project brings together researchers from a wide range of disciplines (EEG/MEG, eye-tracking, ultrasound, etc.) with the common purpose of addressing issues related to speech perception and production in typically developing monolingual and bilingual children, as well as children with hearing loss and specific language impairment.

The project is housed in the Child Language Lab, located in the Australian Hearing Hub on Macquarie University campus in Sydney, Australia, with state-of the art EEG, MEG, infant speech perception, eye-tracking and language production research facilities. The group has extensive collaborative links with Audiology, Speech Pathology, the CCD, and the National Acoustic Laboratories (NAL), providing a dynamic, collaborative research environment

Applications are invited from those with strong quantitative and experimental skills. Sound knowledge of Phonetics and Phonology, as well as experience conducting research with young children will be a plus. Those with prior experience conducing research in speech perception, speech production, eye-tracking or EEG/MEG are especially encouraged to apply.  

How to apply:
Please send inquiries along with CV to Katherine Demuth at Katherine.Demuth at mq.edu.au
