The Department of Cognitive, Linguistic, and Psychological Sciences (CLPS)
at Brown University invites qualified applicants to apply to our Ph.D.
programs for the 2019-2020 academic year. Located in Providence, Rhode
Island -- a vibrant, affordable city close to Boston and New York -- Brown
University offers interdisciplinary training in developmental science in
state-of-the-art facilities. Successful applicants are guaranteed five
years of full tuition, stipend, summer funding, and research and travel

The following faculty are available to train graduate students:

   - *Dima Amso* studies development of attention and memory in typical and
   atypical development using combined behavioral, genetic, and neuroimaging
   measures. http://research.clps.brown.edu/dcnl/
   - *Daphna Buchsbaum* (arriving July 2020) studies how children, as well
   as adults and non-human animals (such as dogs) develop a sophisticated
   understanding of both the physical and social world from relatively sparse
   and ambiguous information. http://www.cocodevlab.com/
   - *Roman Feiman* studies conceptual development, language acquisition,
   and experimental semantics and pragmatics. His focus is on compositional
   meaning in language and thought. https://sites.brown.edu/bltlab/
   - *James Morgan *investigates cognitive and environmental underpinnings
   of early language acquisition, with particular focus on speech perception
   and spoken word recognition.  http://babies.brown.edu/
   - *David Sobel* examines the development of reasoning and social
   cognition in both formal and informal learning environments. Topics of
   interest include causal learning, children’s pretense, selective learning,
   and development of prosocial behavior.

The CLPS department is home to several cutting-edge methodologies.
Resources include:

   - Eye tracking and 3D manual reach tracking
   - Near infrared spectroscopy
   - Smart playroom for automated behavioral tracking
   - Mobile infant laboratory for community testing
   - Strong connections with Providence Children’s Museum for on-site
   research and dissemination
