Description:

**Please note the modifications to applicant requirements.**

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 area of the University's new Science of
Learning initiative. Research approaches and content areas of particular
interest include learning, development, and plasticity in the areas of
language, visual or speech perception, and spatial representation. The
ideal candidate should carry out research that makes substantive contact
with theory, uses experimental, developmental, linguistic, neuroscience,
and/or computational approaches, and has implications for application
within the broad field of learning. The appointment will be joint between
the Cognitive Science Department and the School of Education, with the
expectation of responsibilities in both, but will have tenure-track and/or
tenured status within the Cognitive Science Department. 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 the Science of
Learning initiative 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 November 1, 2012. Johns
Hopkins University actively encourages interest from minorities and women.

Please send cover letter, CV, research statement, and three letters of
recommendation. Please send electronic submissions only to the application
email address below.

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.
