The Brain Organization for Language and Literacy Development (BOLD) Lab at the University of Delaware, Department of Linguistics and Cognitive Science, is seeking graduate students with interests in language, literacy, and cognitive development. The BOLD Lab uses MRI and functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) neuroimaging technology in combination with genetic and behavioral analyses, including field neuroimaging in rural sub-Saharan Africa. Research focuses on children’s development including language (bilingualism, signed languages), reading, and cognition.
Potential graduate students can apply to the PhD program in Linguistics or Psychological and Brain Sciences. Interested students from linguistics, psychology, cognitive science, and/or related fields should contact the laboratory director, Dr. Kaja Jasinska (http://www.haskins.yale.edu/staff/jasinska/), at firstname.lastname@example.org.
