Ph.D. studentships for Cognitive Science at New Bulgarian University

The Central and East European Center for Cognitive Science at New
Bulgarian University invites applications for two-year studentships,
starting in October 2003. The successful candidates will have or
expect to attain this summer a good honours degree or equivalent in
Psychology, Linguistics, Computer Science, Philosophy, or an
associated discipline, and to have research interests in an area of
cognitive science that complements the strengths of current faculty at
the Center. Preferred areas include:

-  Analogy Making: Computational Modeling and Experimental Research
   (Boicho Kokinov, Maurice Grinberg)
-  Cognitive Architectures (DUAL) (Boicho Kokinov, Maurice Grinberg)
-  Constructive Memory: Computational Modeling and Experimental
   Research (Boicho Kokinov, Maurice Grinberg, Encho Gerganov, Lyudmil
   Mavlov, David Popivanov, Elena Andonova)
-  Context and Context Sensitivity of Human Behavior (Boicho Kokinov,
   Maurice Grinberg, Encho Gerganov, Elena Andonova, Stefan Mateeff,
   Angel Vassilev)
-  Cognitive Economics and Decision-Making (Boicho Kokinov, Maurice
   Grinberg, Stefan Mateeff)
-  Human Conceptual System (Lilia Gurova, Encho Gerganov, Elena
   Andonova, Maurice Grinberg, Boicho Kokinov)
-  Language Processing: Behavioral Experimental Research and Modeling
   (Elena Andonova, Encho Gerganov, Lyudmil Mavlov, Maurice Grinberg,
   David Popivanov)
-  Visual Perception: Experimental Research and Modeling (Stefan
   Mateeff, Angel Vassilev, Maurice Grinberg, Naum Yakimoff)

The Ph.D. students are expected to follow the Ph.D. program in
cognitive science at New Bulgarian University and to participate in
research projects.
The available research facilities include an experimental psychology
lab, a neuroscience lab (EEG and eye-tracking equipment), and a
usability lab. As part of the application process, applicants are
strongly encouraged to contact one or more of the faculty members in
the Center for Cognitive Science and discuss possible research
activities. More information on faculty, and the Center generally, is
available at: http://www.nbu.bg/cogs/center/index.html

Euros per annum. The studentships are funded by the project
''Integration of Central and East European Centre for Cognitive
Science into the European Cognitive Science Research Area'' (EUROCOG,
contract No QLG4-CT-2002-90459) managed by the Central and East
European Center for Cognitive Science in the framework of the Specific
Research and Technological Development Program ''Quality of Life and
Management of Living Resources'' of the Fifth Framework Program of the
European Community.
