 Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunities


The University of Rochester seeks five or more outstanding postdoctoral
fellows with research interests in several areas of the Cognitive Sciences,
including language, learning, and development. Three grants from NIH and
NSF provide support. (1) An NIH training grant is affiliated with the
Center for the Sciences of Language. The Center brings together faculty
and students with interests in spoken and signed languages from the
Departments of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Computer Science, Linguistics,
and Philosophy, as well as the interdepartmental program in Neuroscience.
We encourage applicants from any of these disciplines who have expertise in
any area of natural language. We are particularly interested in
postdoctoral fellows who want to contribute to an interdisciplinary
community. (2) A second NIH training grant spans the disciplines of
Learning, Development, and Behavior. Applicants should have expertise in
human or animal research on learning and developmental plasticity or in
computational modeling. Contributing faculty are in the Departments of
Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Computer Science, and the interdepartmental
program in Neuroscience. (3) An NSF research grant on Learning and
Intelligent Systems is directed to questions of rapid statistical learning
in a variety of domains. Applicants should have expertise in behavioral,
computational, or neurobiological approaches to statistical learning in
humans or animals. Contributing faculty are in the Departments of Brain
and Cognitive Sciences at Rochester and the Department of Psychology at
Harvard.

The NIH fellowships are open only to US citizens or permanent residents.
Applicants should send a letter describing their graduate training and
research interests, a curriculum vitae, and arrange to have three letters
of recommendation sent to: Professor Richard N. Aslin, Department of Brain
and Cognitive Sciences, Meliora Hall, University of Rochester, Rochester,
NY 14627-0268. Review of applications will begin on February 15, 2000 and
continue until all of the positions are filled, with expected start dates
ranging from June 30 to September 1, 2000.
