  The Vanderbilt University Department of Psychology and Human Development
is seeking an outstanding psychologist for a tenure-track position at the
assistant professor rank in the area of *COGNITIVE SCIENCE OF LEARNING AND
DEVELOPMENT (CSLD)*. The department is composed of internationally
recognized scholars who work to increase the understanding and application
of basic psychological processes related to the learning and development of
cognition, behavior, and emotion in natural contexts. CSLD is a new focus
area combining strengths in cognitive science, developmental science, and

themes in our department through interdisciplinary research focused on
basic cognitive processes that have implications for learning in formal or
informal settings or for understanding cognitive change in ecological

technological supports for learning will receive special consideration. The
CSLD area consists of 8-10 full-time faculty whose strengths are
complemented by professors in other units in the university, including the
Department of Psychology, Educational Neuroscience, Special Education, and
Teaching & Learning.

Primary responsibilities of this faculty position include establishing an
active program of research, teaching and mentoring undergraduate and
graduate students, and service to the department, university, and the
