Postdoctoral Fellowships in Cognitive Science at New Bulgarian
University

The Central and East European Center for Cognitive Science at New
Bulgarian University invites applications for two one-year
post-doctoral fellowships for the 2004/2005 academic year. The
successful candidates will have an active research program 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,
 Angel Vassilev)
� 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)
� Cognitive Economics and Decision-Making (Boicho Kokinov, Maurice
 Grinberg, Stefan Mateeff)
� Cognitive Science Applications in Education (incl. active methods of
 learning, assessment, and e-learning) (Boicho Kokinov, Maurice
 Grinberg, Encho Gerganov)
� Cognitive Science Applications in Marketing and Advertising
 (incl. development of marketing strategies and studies, Ads concept

The Post-Doctoral Fellows are expected to interact with faculty and
graduate students and to work on research projects. The available
research facilities include an experimental psychology lab, a
neuroscience lab (EEG), and a usability lab (eye-tracking
equipment). 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/
