Computational Approaches to Cognition, tenure track position
 
The Institute of Cognitive Science at the University of Colorado invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position in computational approaches to cognitive and/or affective processes at the assistant professor level with a starting date of Fall 2013. The Institute is a multidisciplinary unit with representation from the departments of Psychology & Neuroscience, Computer Science, Education, Philosophy, Linguistics, Architecture & Planning, and Speech, Language & Hearing Sciences.
 
We seek applicants with a strong research program in theoretical and technical aspects of computational science, preferably with prior experience or interest in integrating cognitive science with state-of-the-art computational approaches.  For example, individuals who utilize machine learning and statistical techniques to understand cognitive processes, such as language or learning, or to analyze high dimensional data from methods, such as functional magnetic resonance imaging, will be competitive for the position. Successful applicants could come from one of several fields, including cognitive science/cognitive neuroscience, computer science, statistics, biostatistics, physics, or other related disciplines. An ability for and commitment to interdisciplinary research is a priority, as is an approach that both exploits existing computational techniques to address questions relevant to cognitive science and advances machine-learning theory. Duties include research, research supervision, service, as well as graduate and undergraduate teaching.
 
Applicants are directed to the CU online job application website: www.jobsatcu.com; Job Posting Number 818695.  At this site you will be asked for a curriculum vitae, copies of representative publications, a teaching statement, a research summary, and letter from three referees.
