Our program provides a unique opportunity to tackle questions about the mind and brain in a theoretically-motivated, interdisciplinary environment that has a number of foci, including language, visual cognition, psycholinguistics, cognitive neuropsychology, and a new track in Computational Cognitive Science at the intersection of these disciplines. Our department is committed to diversity and inclusion, and we strongly encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups. More information about our faculty, labs, and research areas can be found on our website. PhD students receive five years of funding which includes full tuition, health insurance, and a competitive 12-month stipend. The application deadline is December 1, 2020.
