ICS Tenure Track Faculty: Sr. Assistant or Associate Level, Fall 2016, Posting #F02900
The Institute of Cognitive Science at the University Colorado Boulder is seeking to hire a tenure-track professor at the advanced Assistant or Associate level (position #00717347). We are particularly interested in applicants with expertise in the analysis, modeling, and interpretation of complex data sets using advanced computational techniques from fields such as machine learning, statistics, signal processing, and network analysis.
The internet and the availability of massive data repositories (e.g., language corpora, large-scale neuroimaging studies, educational data logs) are changing research paradigms in the allied fields of cognitive science. We seek an individual who leverages these resources and/or their own data collection efforts to advance our understanding of a substantive topic within cognitive science, and/or to develop techniques and systems that boost human cognitive potential.
The Institute brings together researchers from seven departments: Computer Science; Education; Integrative Physiology; Linguistics; Philosophy; Psychology & Neuroscience; and Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences. We offer a Joint PhD in Cognitive Science with each of these departments, and we teach highly interdisciplinary courses. Institute research is presently focused in three strategic areas: Human Learning and Education, Language Processing, and Cognitive Neuroscience, broadly defined. Our ideal candidate will have an outstanding track record in one or more of these areas, a strong funding history, and a commitment to interdisciplinary research.
For best consideration, applications should be completed by
November 1, 2015, but will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.
Applications should include a current curriculum vitae, list of at least 3
professional references, statement of teaching philosophy, statement of research philosophy, publications demonstrating the characteristics described above, and a cover letter addressing the applicant’s match to the Institute.
