We seek candidates in the cognitive sciences to contribute to
teaching and research in the department and general education
curriculum. Successful candidates should have the requisite
knowledge and training to teach one or more of our required
foundation courses, most important, Introduction to
Cognitive Neuroscience. The department has programmatic
interests in language and multimodal communication (including
speech, gesture, second language learning, bilingualism,
multimedia, and narrative), the use of data science to understand
the human mind (including ethical considerations in the application
of tools), the reciprocal shaping of cognition and institutions
(e.g., money, law, religion), and how differences in experience
(such as race, gender, culture, ideology) shape cognition.
Successful candidates must have attained a PhD or equivalent before
the fall start date of August 29, 2022.
Successful candidates may also have the opportunity to teach an
elective course in their specialty. The successful candidates will
be committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the
Department and University.
