Dear colleagues:
Please forward this ad (or re-forward) to any lists, colleagues, and
(especially) promising candidates for either position. We are pushing to get
a strong pool of applicants from a range of disciplines, labs, etc.
If you know of good people who you'd like to see us consider, please send me
their names/contact info.

Important: if you forward it--especially to lists (and we REALLY need it
posted to [cognitive] neuroscience lists or sites!)--copy Marine (
msinanya@Cogsci.ucsd.edu). She needs to keep a record.
Thank you very much for your help. Hopefully we'll have a couple of great
new colleagues next year as a result!




The *Department of Cognitive Science *at the University of California at San
Diego has *two faculty positions* for outstanding developmental researchers.
The Cognitive Science department at UCSD (http://www.cogsci.ucsd.edu/) was
the first of its kind in the world, and, as part of an exceptional
scientific community, it remains a dominant influence in the field it helped
to create. The department is truly interdisciplinary, with a faculty whose
interests span anthropology, computer science, human development,
linguistics, neuroscience, philosophy, and psychology.

1. *Assistant Professor* (tenure-track): The department is looking for a
top-caliber junior researcher in any area(s) of cognitive science, with a
focus on problems of human development. Applicants must have a Ph.D. (or
ABD). A broad interdisciplinary perspective will be highly valued.
Experience with multiple methodologies is preferred.

2. *Associate or Full Professor* (with tenure): The department is looking
for an outstanding senior researcher in any area(s) of cognitive science,
with a focus on problems of human development. The position will also
include the Directorship of the UCSD Center for Human Development (
http://chd.ucsd.edu/). The Center for Human Development is an
interdisciplinary research unit with close ties to Cognitive Science,
Psychology, and other departments at UCSD. Its principal mission is to
foster strong cross-disciplinary approaches to the study of human
development, broadly defined. Applicants with a track record of exemplary
research with an impact in multiple disciplines are preferred.

Salary for each position will be commensurate with the experience of the
successful applicant and based on the UC pay scale. Both positions begin
July 1, 2007.

Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. Applicants are invited to
provide comments about their leadership activities and contributions to
diversity in education and scholarship. The University of California, San
Diego is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer with a strong
institutional commitment to excellence through diversity. Review of
applications will begin January 15, 2007 and will continue until each
position is filled.

Candidates should submit, via our online application, a letter of intent
describing their background and interests, a current curriculum vita,
reprints of up to four representative publications, and a list of at least
three references (names, titles, addresses, and email addresses). To apply,
see "Faculty Positions" at http://www.cogsci.ucsd.edu/.
