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
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:
concerning these positions can be addressed to Dr. Gregory C. DeAngelis,
chair of the department [email: ]. Review
of applications will begin on October 15, 2012. The University of
