Postdoctoral Positions in Cognitive Modeling
Tuesday, 01 April 2014 17:26

Two post-doctoral fellows are sought to conduct research under the direction of Drs. Amy Criss and Michael Kalish in the Department of Psychology at Syracuse University. The broad goals of the research program are to develop and evaluate models of human learning and memory using behavioral experiments, advanced statistical techniques (including hierarchical Bayesian analysis) and mathematical cognitive modeling.  Dr. Criss's primary work is in episodic memory, while Dr. Kalish's focus is on category learning processes.  We are looking for a candidate in each of these areas, and are especially interested in scholars who can bridge the two.

Successful candidates will have a PhD in cognitive psychology, cognitive science or related fields (computer science, applied maths, neuroscience) and will have relevant research experience. The funding is for one year with subsequent years possible based on positive evaluation and availability of funds. Salary will be commensurate with experience. Apply online at:


and attach curriculum vita, brief statement of research interests (including reference to the research of Criss/Kalish respectively), and contact information for 3 references.


Review of applications will begin immediately and will be accepted until the positions are filled. An appointment may begin as early as June 2014. SU is an EEO/AA employer.
