Ph.D. studentships for Cognitive Science at New Bulgarian University

The Central and East European Center for Cognitive Science at New
Bulgarian University invites applications for two-year studentships,
starting in October 2003. The successful candidates will have or
expect to attain this summer a good honours degree or equivalent in
Psychology, Linguistics, Computer Science, Philosophy, or an
associated discipline, and to have research interests in an area of
cognitive science that complements the strengths of current faculty at
the Center. Preferred areas include:
 
- Analogy Making: Computational Modeling and Experimental Research
 (Boicho Kokinov, Maurice Grinberg)
- Cognitive Architectures (DUAL) (Boicho Kokinov, Maurice Grinberg)
- Constructive Memory: Computational Modeling and Experimental
 Research (Boicho Kokinov, Maurice Grinberg, Encho Gerganov, Lyudmil
 Mavlov, David Popivanov, Elena Andonova)
- Context and Context Sensitivity of Human Behavior (Boicho Kokinov,
 Maurice Grinberg, Encho Gerganov, Elena Andonova, Stefan Mateeff,

- Cognitive Economics and Decision-Making (Boicho Kokinov, Maurice
 Grinberg, Stefan Mateeff)
- Human Conceptual System (Lilia Gurova, Encho Gerganov, Elena
 Andonova, Maurice Grinberg, Boicho Kokinov)
- Language Processing: Behavioral Experimental Research and Modeling
 (Elena Andonova, Encho Gerganov, Lyudmil Mavlov, Maurice Grinberg,
 David Popivanov)
- Visual Perception: Experimental Research and Modeling (Stefan
 Mateeff, Angel Vassilev, Maurice Grinberg, Naum Yakimoff)

The Ph.D. students are expected to follow the Ph.D. program in
cognitive science at New Bulgarian University and to participate in
research projects.
The available research facilities include an experimental psychology
lab, a neuroscience lab (EEG and eye-tracking equipment), and a
usability lab. As part of the application process, applicants are
strongly encouraged to contact one or more of the faculty members in
the Center for Cognitive Science and discuss possible research
activities. More information on faculty, and the Center generally, is
available at: http://www.nbu.bg/cogs/center/index.html
