Subject: Doctoral Studentships

Dear Colleague,

I have several studentships for doing a doctoral degree with
me. If you have some very bright students who might be interested
in doing a Ph.D. (experimental and/or computational) on categorical
perception, symbol grounding, language evolution or some aspect of
electronic communication, I would be grateful if you would encourge
them to contact me.

Best wishes,
