The Department of Linguistics at Northwestern University invites applications for fully funded graduate fellowships for doctoral study in linguistics and interdisciplinary approaches to the science of language. The Department of Linguistics is pleased to announce new faculty and new opportunities for student research and training in the areas of sociolinguistics, laboratory phonology and prosody, which complement existing strengths in the study of grammar, meaning, sound structure, language processing and computational linguistics. Both within and beyond the Linguistics Department, Northwestern has a vibrant community of researchers actively working on a wide variety of issues in language structure and processing, utilizing formal, experimental, corpus and computational methods and diverse populations and languages.

Research areas

  *   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
