Applications are due by: 07-Jan-2007

The Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology (HST)
invites applications for admission to the Ph.D. Program in Speech and
Hearing Bioscience and Technology (SHBT) for the fall semester 2007.

Synthesizing engineering, medicine and science, the program offers a
rigorous curriculum that trains students to apply research methods,
design techniques, and clinical knowledge to the study of the physical,
cognitive, and biological systems underlying language and
communication. With access to the resources of MIT, Harvard and its
eleven teaching hospitals, this program provides students with a vast
range of research and educational opportunities.

The program emphasizes interdisciplinary education that spans
physics, biology, psychology, linguistics, medicine and engineering,
including clinical coursework.

No prior experience in speech and hearing is required. Applicants
should have strong analytical skills and at least a bachelor’s degree
in a relevant field. Course work in the first year assumes familiarity
with calculus, college level physics, statistics, and biology.

Students are accepted based on interests, academic background,
intellectual ability, curiosity, motivation, and character. US citizens
and permanent residents are eligible for fellowship support of up to
three years from the National Institutes of Health. Applications are
due January 7, 2007. More information about the SHBT program is
available online at http://web.mit.edu/shbt/

If you have any questions about the program or the application
process, please contact the admissions chair, Prof. Chris Brown
