Faculty position, Cognitive Science Program, 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 in Fall 2009 or later. 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 an area of interdisciplinary field linking cognitive science and one or more areas of the social sciences. The potential areas include, but are not restricted to, cognitive and evolutionary anthropology, behavioral economics, social cognition and social psychology, cognitive linguistics, communication and pragmatics, and computational modeling. This is a research-focused position that requires training graduate students but no undergraduate teaching.
