THE UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER

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.
Two NIH training grants provide support. 

(1) An NIH training grant is affiliated with the Center for Language
Sciences. 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 and
Developmental Plasticity. 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.

All 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 January 15, 2002 and continue
until all of the positions are filled, with expected start dates
ranging from June 30 to September 1, 2002.
