Multiple positions in Cognitive Science at Case Western Reserve  

The Department of Cognitive Science in the College of Arts & Sciences  
at Case Western Reserve University invites applications for two or  
more faculty positions in cognitive neuroscience or a related  
cognitive research field. Rank is open and commensurate with  
qualifications. This new department began admitting undergraduate  
students in the fall of 2006. Its research will focus on higher-order  
cognitive operations that are special to human beings, including  
language and the special effects of culture and technology on the  
developing mind. The department aims to interconnect the research and  
teaching resources relevant to cognitive science in the College of  
Arts & Sciences, as well as other schools of the university,  
including Medicine, Engineering, Law, and Management. It also aims to  
develop productive relationships with the many institutions adjacent  
to the university. The programmatic and research agendas of these  
institutions are entering an era of unprecedented collaboration, and  
the Department of Cognitive Science is charged to serve as one of the  
principal vehicles of these collaborations. The successful candidate 
(s) will be expected to develop a strong program of funded research  
in some area of cognitive neuroscience or a related, biologically- 
oriented aspect of cognitive science that bears on human uniqueness.  
He or she will help design and deliver both undergraduate and  
graduate programs in cognitive science, and assist the department in  
meeting college and university goals. For appointment at one of the  
professorial ranks, applicants must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent by  
date of appointment and have, relative to career stage, a  
distinguished record of scholarship, service, and teaching.

Electronic applications are preferred, consisting of a letter of  
application, a curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests  
and plans, a statement of teaching experience, and the names,  
addresses, and email addresses of four referees to whom we may write.
