3 PhD positions on evolution of speech
Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Brussels, Belgium
Deadline: July first 2012
Envisaged starting date: September 2012
The AI-lab of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel is looking for three PhD students that will work on Bart de Boer’s European Research Council project “ABACUS”. The ABACUS project investigates (evolution of) cognitive mechanisms for dealing with combinatorial speech. It uses a combination of iterated learning experiments, individual learning experiments and computational modeling. For each of these lines of research, a PhD position is available. The PhDs of the different projects are expected to cooperate closely with each other.
