The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to engage in non-discriminatory hiring practices. We urge employers not to discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Web Address: http://cogsci.jhu.edu
Job Rank: Faculty Position, Any Level

Specialty Areas: Cognitive Science; Science of Learning


Description:

The Department of Cognitive Science in the Krieger School of Arts and
Sciences and the School of Education at Johns Hopkins University seek a
faculty candidate, at any level, with an exceptional record of conducting and
directing research in the broad area of the Science of Learning. The
appointment will be joint between these two units, with the expectation of
responsibilities in both, but will have tenure-track and/or tenured status
within the Cognitive Science Department. Research approaches and
content areas that are of particular interest include plasticity, learning, and
development in the areas of language, visual or speech perception or
spatial representation. The ideal candidate should carry out research that
makes substantive contact with theory, uses experimental, developmental,
neuroscience and/or computational approaches, and has implications for
application within the broad field of learning. Candidates should be strongly
interdisciplinary, prepared to carry out effective teaching, student
supervision, and collaboration in a formally-oriented, highly interdisciplinary
Cognitive Science department, and eager to take advantage of
collaborations with the School of Education and its connection to diverse
student populations in area public and private schools. Candidates should
be capable of making significant contributions to a new research initiative in
the Science of Learning involving the Cognitive Science Department, the
School of Education, and other units; further faculty growth in this area is
anticipated. The Cognitive Science Department and the School of
Education have a strong commitment to achieving diversity among faculty
and staff. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from
members of underrepresented groups and strongly encourage women and
persons of color to apply for this position. Applications are due by January
15, 2012.

Please send cover letter, CV, research statement, and three letters of
recommendation. Please send electronic submissions only to
searchcogsci.jhu.edu.

Johns Hopkins University actively encourages interest from minorities and
women. The Johns Hopkins University is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative
Action employer, Minorities, women, Vietnam-era veterans, disabled
veterans and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
