Dr. Barker mentors graduate students pursuing their doctorate of audiology (Au.D.) degrees, graduate degrees with Listening and Spoken Language emphasis, and Ph.D. degrees in Disability Disciplines or Neuroscience at Utah State University. If you are interested in working with Dr. Barker in the Spoken Language Processing lab, please reach out to her during the application process and make sure she is accepting new graduate students.
We love bringing new students into our scientific family. Please continue to explore our website so that you have an understanding of our work and the culture in our lab. We are especially excited about potential students who:
- have a passion for interdisciplinary, collaborative research.
- recognize that the ear is connected to the brain and their relationship is dynamic, particularly when it comes to spoken language processing.
- are interested in implementation science within the field of aural rehabilitation.
