Subject: Cognitive, Computational & Statistical approaches Postdoc Brown/U, USA

Graduate students and postdocs interested in language acquisition and 
psycholinguistics are actively encouraged to apply for the following 
positions.


 LEARNING AND ACTION IN THE FACE OF UNCERTAINTY
 Brown University Interdisciplinary Graduate Training Program

 Deadline for Applications: January 1, 2002

Brown University is actively recruiting graduate students for an
NSF-supported Interdisciplinary Graduate Education, Research and
Training (IGERT) program in "Learning and Action in the Face of
Uncertainty: Cognitive, Computational and Statistical Approaches".

The use of probabilistic models and statistical methods has had a
major impact on our understanding of language, sing, action, and
reasoning with appropriate mathematical and computational models.
Students will be enrolled in one of the three participating
departments (Applied Mathematics, Cognitive & Linguistic Sciences, or
Computer Science) and will follow an interdisciplinary program of
courses in topics such as statistical estimation, cognitive processes,
linguistics, and computational models. The aim of this program is to
provide promising students with a mix of mathematical, computational
and experimental expertise to carry out multidisciplinary
collaborative research across the disciplines of Applied Mathematics,
Computer Science, and Cognitive and Linguistic Sciences.

Interested students should apply to the participating department
closest to their area of interest and expertise, and should indicate
their interest in the IGERT training program in their application.
These NSF funded positions are restricted to US citizens and permanent
residents. Brown University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action
Employer.

BROWN UNIVERSITY. Post-doctoral positions available for cognitive or
computational scientist. As part of an NSF award to Brown University
through the IGERT program, the Departments of Cognitive and Linguistic
Sciences, Computer Science, and Applied Mathematics are hiring
research associates. The associates should be scholars who have
displayed interest and ability in conducting collaborative
interdisciplinary research involving a combination of computational
and empirical approaches to one of the content areas of the program:
cognition, language, or vision. As well as participating in
collaborative research, responsibilities will include helping to
coordinate cross-departmental events as well as some graduate
teaching. Applicants must hold a PhD in Psychology, Linguistics,
Cognitive Science, Computer Science, Mathematics, Applied Mathematics,
or a related discipline, or show evidence that the PhD will be
completed before the start of the position. Applicants should send a
vita, a short research statement, three letters of reference, and
other supporting material (e.g., representative publications if
available), to IGERT Post-doc Search, Department of Cognitive and
Linguistic Sciences, Brown University, Box 1978, Providence, RI 02912.
Special consideration will be given to those applicants whose research
is relevant to at least two of the participating departments. The
positions are open immediately for one year, renewable upon
satisfactory completion of duties. Salaries will be between $35,000
and $45,000 per year. All materials must be received by Feb. 15,
2002, for full consideration. Like all NSF-funded programs, this
opportunity is available only to American citizens and permanent
residents. Brown University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative
Action Employer.
