Faculty Positions in Cognitive Science and Neuroscience, University of Rochester, USA

The Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at the University of Rochester has multiple openings for tenure-track faculty members in the general areas of cognitive science and neuroscience. We are seeking to hire outstanding faculty in three areas:

Cognition: Research interests could include action, attention, categorization, decision making, learning, memory, and perception, and could also include approaches such as cognitive development, cognitive neuroscience, computational modeling, and neuropsychology.

Language: Applicants are sought with a specialization in natural language production, comprehension or acquisition, including those who adopt primarily cognitive neuroscience, computational and behavioral approaches.

Systems/Computational Neuroscience: We are primarily interested in candidates who employ experimental and/or computational neuroscience approaches to address fundamental questions regarding the neural basis of behavior. Specific areas of interest include sensory neural coding, motor control, decision-making, plasticity, learning and memory.

Successful candidates will join a dynamic, collegial department whose focus is the study of development, cognition, and perception through combined neurobiological, computational, and behavioral research. Further information and application instructions regarding each position can be found at the following website: Questions concerning these positions can be addressed to Dr. Gregory C. DeAngelis, chair of the department [email: gdeangelis [ à ]]. Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2012. The University of Rochester is an Equal Opportunity Employer and has a strong commitment to diversity and actively encourages applications from candidates from groups underrepresented in higher education.
