University or Organization: University of California, San Diego Department: Cognitive Science Job Location: California, USA Web Address:

Job Rank: Assistant Professor

Specialty Areas: Cognitive Science


The Department of Cognitive Science at the University of California, San Diego invites applications for two faculty positions. The department has a preference for top-caliber junior researchers in cognitive science to be appointed at the assistant professor level, but may consider candidates who qualify for a higher rank. Appointments begin July 1, 2009. Salary is commensurate with the experience and based on the University of California pay scale.

The UCSD Department of Cognitive Science was the first of its kind in the world, and, as part of an exceptional scientific community, continues to influence the field it helped to create. The department is truly interdisciplinary, with a faculty whose interests span anthropology, computer science, human development, linguistics, neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, and sociology.

Applicants must have a PhD (or ABD). We seek one applicant with a research focus on human computer interaction, and one in language and cognition. For both positions an interdisciplinary perspective and experience with multiple methodologies is highly valued. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. UCSD is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer with a strong institutional commitment to excellence through diversity.

Although we will accept applications until the positions are filled, we encourage application by November 15, 2008 for full consideration. Candidates should submit, via online application, a vita, reprints of up to four representative publications, a short cover letter describing background and interests, and at least three references (name, title, address and email). Applicants are welcome to include in their cover letter a statement summarizing their contributions to diversity.

Application Deadline: 15-Nov-2008 (Open until filled)
