This is an applied cognition position and the ideal candidate’s research and outreach connects cognitive psychology to K-16 curriculum and instruction. Scholars in all areas of human cognition and learning relevant to education in and out of school are encouraged to apply. The position is located in the School of Cognitive Science. We are particularly interested in candidates with the demonstrated ability to work synergistically across disciplinary boundaries, connecting with faculty and students in cognitive science as well as our interdisciplinary program in Childhood, Youth, and Learning.
