Faculty position at CEU, Budapest
The Central European University (CEU) in Budapest, Hungary, invites applications for an open-rank faculty position to extend its recently established Cognitive Science Program. This new position can be taken at Fall 2010. We are seeking candidates with a PhD in a relevant discipline who have an already proven background of research excellence that documents their potential to establish a strong and independent research program in any area of cognitive sciences. Preference will be given to researchers who link cognitive science to one or more areas of the social sciences including, but not restricted to, cognitive and evolutionary anthropology, behavioral economics, social cognition and social psychology, cognitive linguistics, communication and pragmatics, and computational modeling of social cognitive processes. This is a research-focused position that involves supervising and training graduate students but no undergraduate teaching. The CEU offers a competitive salary, as well as a dynamic and international academic environment.
CEU is a graduate research-intensive university specializing primarily in the social sciences, located in Budapest, Hungary and accredited in the United States and Hungary. CEU's primary mission is to promote academic excellence, state of the art research and civic commitment, so as to contribute to the development of open societies in Central and Eastern Europe and other emerging democracies.

The teaching staff consists of more than 140 resident faculty from over 40 countries, and a large number of prominent visiting scholars from around the world. The language of instruction is English.
