Assistant Professor of Computational Cognitive Science at the Donders Centre for Cognition

The Donders Centre for Cognition (DCC), part of the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition, and Behaviour, and the School of Artificial Intelligence invite applications for an Assistant Professor position in Computational Cognitive Science. Computational Cognitive Science aims at advancing the theoretical foundations of computational explanations in cognitive science. Research methods include conceptual analysis, formal and computational modelling (e.g. probabilistic, neural networks, logic- and/or agent-based models), mathematical proof techniques (e.g. computational complexity analysis) and computer simulation. We seek candidates with expertise in these methods and a clear research profile in the domain of Computational Cognitive Science.

You will join the Computational Cognitive Science group at DCC and will be expected to contribute to the running of research (e.g. assist with supervision). Demonstrated commitment and/or contributions to open science practices and computational reproducibility are much valued. Teaching duties will primarily be within the Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes in Artificial Intelligence. You will be expected to teach at least one MSc level course (e.g. Theoretical Foundations of Cognitive Agents) and contribute to other courses (e.g. AI as a Science, Theoretical Modelling for Cognitive Science, Cognition and Complexity). You will also supervise students working on their Bachelor's and Master's theses.

Application deadline: 2 May 2021
