PhD in Psychology Inferences and Implications at Cardiff University

Cardiff University is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening PhD position in linguistics. This position is available for 3 years. Candidates are welcome before March 17, 2019.

This PhD will use modern psycholinguistic techniques to understand the real time processing of figurative language.

Jokes, metaphor, hyperbole, idioms and other figurative expressions all require that we think past the literal meaning of words and consider the intentions of the speaker.

Inferences and implications are fundamental to successful communication.

Full awards (fees plus maintenance stipend) are open to UK Nationals, and EU students who can satisfy UK residency requirements. To be eligible for the full award, EU Nationals must have been in the UK for at least 3 years prior to the start of the course for which they are seeking funding, including for the purposes of full-time education.

As only one studentship is available and a very high standard of applications is typically received, the successful applicant is likely to have a very good first degree (a First or Upper Second class BSc Honours or equivalent) and/or be distinguished by having relevant research experience.

Consideration is automatic on applying for theDoctor of Philosophy in Psychology with an October 2019 start date.
