A lectureship (comparable to a US tenure-track faculty position) in
Computational Cognitive Science is available at the School of Informatics,
University of Edinburgh.
The University of Edinburgh has announced a number of prestigious
positions called Chancellor's Fellowships. These are initially 5-year
Fellowships, but subject to satisfactory review at the end of 3 years, the
Fellow will move to a permanent academic post. Appointees will be able
to concentrate on research in the first instance, acquiring the full duties of
University Lecturer across the period of the Fellowship. These prestigious
awards are aimed at early career individuals of the highest potential who
have begun to establish a reputation for the highest quality research at the
forefront of their discipline and who have a commitment to learning and
teaching at university level.
One of the priority areas for Chancellor's Fellowships is Computational
Cognitive Science. Areas of interest include computational models of
language (including human-human and human-machine communication),
higher-level cognition (including reasoning, categorization, and cognitive
development), and multi-modal cognition (including visual processing,
gesture, and sensorimotor control). Research on these topics is conducted
in the Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation (ILCC,
ILCC is based in the School of Informatics, one of the world's top research
leaders in computer science/informatics. The University of Edinburgh is
one of the world's top research universities, in one of the world's most
