Cognitive and Linguistic Sciences and the Department of Psychology
invite applications for a tenure-track joint position as Assistant
Professor in the computational modeling of human cognitive systems,
beginning July 1, 2009.  Applicants must have a strong computational
or theoretical research program, modeling any aspect of human
cognitive or language processing.  Collaboration or experience in
related experimental research is desirable.  Candidates should also
have a broad teaching ability in the cognitive sciences at both
the undergraduate and graduate levels and an interest in contributing
to interdisciplinary research and education. Brown has a highly
interdisciplinary research environment in the study of mind, brain,
behavior, and language, and is in the process of establishing an
integrated Department of Cognitive, Linguistic, and Psychological
Sciences.  Plans to house the new department (together with the
multi-departmental Institute for Brain Science) in a new building
adjacent to the MRI Research Facility are well under way. Curriculum
vitae, reprints and preprints of publications, one-page statements
of research and teaching interests, and three letters of reference
should be submitted by December 15, 2008.  Applicants are encouraged
to submit materials on-line at www.cog.brown.edu/jobs, or else by
