The University of Wisconsin-Madison has created a cluster of three faculty
positions in the interdisciplinary area of Cognitive Science. The aim of
the cluster is to develop innovative and competitive research programs that
will foster productive interactions among faculty and students across
departments and expand the contributions of Cognitive Science into the
wealth of related research already present on the University of
Wisconsin-Madison campus.

Successful candidates will use the cluster structure as a catalyst for
collaborative research; advise graduate students; contribute to the
University's teaching mission; and participate in faculty governance in
their respective departments, colleges, and/or the University. Faculty
hired under this initiative will have primary or joint faculty appointments
in existing campus departments.

To initiate the cluster we are seeking a senior candidate with a strong
reputation for successful interdisciplinary collaboration in an area of
Cognitive Science. Two areas of specific interest are (1) judgment and
decision making and (2) linguistics and computation. The ideal candidate
will be able to contribute to the University of Wisconsin-Madison faculty's
research interests, and to the application of basic research to problems in
one or more of the following: behavioral science, computer science,
economics, education, engineering, and health-related fields.

Applications should include a CV and a statement describing research and
teaching interests, accomplishments, and direction, as related to the
description above. Names and contact information for three references
should also be included. Applications will be accepted until the position
is filled. Applications should be addressed to
