Description:

THE UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER

University of Rochester seeks five or more outstanding postdoctoral
fellows with research interests in the Cognitive Sciences, including
the areas of language, learning, and development. Two NIH training
grants provide support.

(1) LANGUAGE: An NIH training grant is affiliated with the Center for
Language Sciences. The Center brings together faculty and students
with interests in spoken and signed languages from the Departments of
Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Computer Science, Linguistics,
Philosophy, and the interdepartmental Neuroscience cluster. We seek
applicants from any of these disciplines who have expertise in any
area of natural language. We are particularly interested in
postdoctoral fellows who want to contribute to an interdisciplinary
community.

(2) LEARNING AND PLASTICITY: A second NIH training grant spans the
disciplines of Learning and Developmental Plasticity. Applicants
should have interests in human or animal research on learning and
developmental plasticity, in computational modeling of learning, or in
cognitive neuroscience including fMRI. Contributing faculty are in
the Departments of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Computer Science, and
the interdepartmental Neuroscience cluster, and study learning ranging
from language and bird song acquisition to perceptual learning in
vision and motor learning. We seek applicants from any discipline
with interests in the study of learning and plasticity within an
interdisciplinary community.

All fellowships are open only to US citizens or permanent residents.
Applicants should send a letter describing their graduate training and
research interests, a vita, and arrange to have three letters of
recommendation sent to:
