New NSF-funded PhD positions in Cognitive Science/Cognitive Neuroscience,
University of Delaware

The Cognitive Psychology program in the Department of Psychological & Brain
Sciences at the University of Delaware is actively recruiting new Ph.D.
students to start in September, 2017.  In addition to regular funding, up to 6
competitive graduate positions are available for full funding through a new,
6-million-dollar, multi-site grant from the National Science Foundation led by
faculty in our program. The purpose of the grant is to study the interplay
between perception and experience as the brain acquires new knowledge, and to
foster interactions between researchers and students that study the mind and
brain using a variety of methods and populations. The grant will also support
an Annual Summer Undergraduate Workshop that will introduce students to
cutting-edge techniques and theory in cognitive science and neuroscience,
beginning in the Summer of 2017. 

The new Center for Biomedical & Brain Imaging at the University of Delaware
houses a Siemens Prisma 3T MRI scanner, a mock scanner, TMS laboratory, and
future expansion for a small bore animal MRI scanner and multi-modal
microscopy.  We encourage our students to utilize these resources in a
collaborative manner, and to further develop connections with other areas
within the department (Behavioral Neuroscience, Clinical, and Social), other
departments within the University of Delaware (e.g. Linguistics and Cognitive
Science, Physical Therapy, Mechanical Engineering) and neighboring
universities and medical institutions such as Christiana Hospital. The
University of Delaware is located in Newark, Delaware, between Philadelphia
and Baltimore, with easy access to major East Coast cities.

Our department has a vibrant, collaborative group of cognitive psychologists
and cognitive neuroscientists who investigate the mind and brain across
multiple domains and methodologies. The Cognitive Psychology faculty include:

- James E. Hoffman - hoffman at psych.udel.edu, visual attention, consciousness,
and cognitive control 
- Helene Intraub - intraub at psych.udel.edu, visual scene perception,
imagination and memory, haptic and bimodal representation 
- Jared Medina - jmedina at psych.udel.edu, body representations, cognitive
neuropsychology, TMS 
- Anna Papafragou - papafragou at psych.udel.edu, language learning and
processing, language and cognition 
- Paul C. Quinn - pquinn at psych.udel.edu, cognition, perception, and
- Keith Schneider - keithas at udel.edu, architecture of the sensory systems;
attention, perception and awareness
- Tim Vickery - tvickery at psych.udel.edu, learning, visual attention, memory
and perception, reward 

Applicants must have a Bachelor's degree by Fall 2017, and should have a
strong interest in cognition, attention, language, perception and/or
neuroscience.  Research experience is strongly desirable. Students in good
standing typically receive financial support for five years, in the form of an
RA, TA or fellowship.

For further information, contact one of the faculty above and/or see the
admissions FAQ.  

Application deadline is December 15, 2016.
