This institution is doing three searches simultaneously (cog, perception, quant), which I realize is a lot of work on the part of the department. However, the deadlines were in October… and it is now December so I'm really wondering about this one. Anyone heard anything about how these searches are progressing?
I applied for the perception position and have received a confirmation of application.
FWIW the UC system just had a 100M $ "trigger cut" due to the California budget fiasco so perhaps this effected the UCSC jobs. Having said that, I've not heard jack from the cog job either.
Aren't there two Cognitive positions, one in memory and one in higher-level perception?
Yeah, that's right. I inquired about the position I had applied for (memory), although I referred to it in my email as the "cognitive search." He referenced my application in his reply, so I took his response to be specific to the memory position. I'm not sure what's up with the h-l perception position. Seems like things are moving over there though, so more info may be available soon.
