Translating Cognitive and Brain Science in the Laboratory and Field to Language Learning Environments

We are excited to announce a new opportunity for UCI undergraduate and graduate students to conduct innovative language science research at leading institutions in Europe, Asia and Latin America, sponsored through a grant from the National Science Foundation’s Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE) program.

Translating Cognitive and Brain Science in the Laboratory and Field to Language Learning Environments trains a diverse workforce of language scientists to conduct basic and applied behavioral and neuroscience research. Our work involves domestic and international collaborations, and aims to translate basic science in culturally diverse contexts.

 

ABOUT OUR PROJECT

ABOUT OUR PROJECT

Research on the language and learning sciences has grown at a remarkable pace, in part due to the contributions of cross-disciplinary approaches that merge the power of behavioral, neuroscience, and computational methods. Two grants awarded from the National Science Foundation’s Partnerships for

PIRE FELLOWS PROGRAM

PIRE FELLOWS PROGRAM

We offer competitive fellowships to qualified UCI undergraduate and graduate students. PIRE fellows spend an academic quarter abroad conducting language science research at one of our  PIRE partner sites in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. The program covers all research-related expenses,

WHAT IS PIRE?

Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE) is an National Science Foundation (NSF) program that supports international activities across all NSF supported disciplines. The primary goal of PIRE is to support high quality projects in which advances in research and education could not occur without international collaboration.
