Applications are invited for PhD studentships in speech science at Newcastle University. We welcome applicants who are interested in all aspects of speech perception, production and learning. Note that eligibility for these awards has now been extended to international students. Studentships, to start in October 2021, will be awarded via open competition for two doctoral training partnerships:
• AHRC Northern Bridge Consortium, deadline Wednesday 13th January 2021.
• ESRC Northern Ireland and North East Doctoral Training Partnership (NINEDTP), deadline Friday 22 January 2021.
