Ph.D Candidates

The Linguistics Department of the Hebrew University has a vibrant graduate program, with MA and PhD students and postdoctoral researchers and several excellent programs, research projects, and labs.

PhD students work on a wide variety of topics, ranging from descriptive and theoretical linguistics to experimental and computational analysis of language. For an impression of what our graduate students are doing, see student page.

There are several special programs for outstanding students associated with the Linguistics Department, such as:

  • The Language Logic and Cognition Center, LLCC, whose goal is to create an environment where there is interdisciplinary engagement in issues pertaining to language, crossing boundaries of computer science, linguistics, philosophy and psychology. Click here for information.
  • The joint graduate program in Linguistics working in collaboration between the Hebrew University and Tel-Aviv University (supported by the Humanities Fund). The program proposes a five-year curriculum in the following tracks: Syntax, Semantics, Phonology, Computational Linguistics, Psycho- and Neurolinguistics, Usage-Based Linguistics. Click here for information.

There are opportunities for PhD students to participate in a variety of research projects (see link research projects) and to collaborate with a number of labs, including  the LLCC lab, Computer Science labs , the Language Learning and Processing Lab.

We welcome new ideas and research frameworks. If you have an interest in linguistics that you don't see represented here, get in touch!
