The Department of Cognitive Science in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Education at Johns Hopkins University seek a faculty candidate, at any level, with an exceptional record of conducting and directing research in the broad area of the Science of Learning. The appointment will be joint between these two units, with the expectation of responsibilities in both, but will have tenure-track and/or tenured status within the Cognitive Science Department. Research approaches and content areas that are of particular interest include plasticity, learning, and development in the areas of language, visual or speech perception or spatial representation. The ideal candidate should carry out research that makes substantive contact with theory, uses experimental, developmental, neuroscience and/or computational approaches, and has implications for application within the broad field of learning. Candidates should be strongly interdisciplinary, prepared to carry out effective teaching, student supervision, and collaboration in a formally-oriented, highly interdisciplinary Cognitive Science department, and eager to take advantage of collaborations with the School of Education and its connection to diverse student populations in area public and private schools.Candidates should be capable of making significant contributions to a new research initiative in the Science of Learning involving the Cognitive Science Department, the School of Education, and other units; further faculty growth in this area is anticipated. The Cognitive Science Department and the School of Education have a strong commitment to achieving diversity among faculty and staff. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from members of underrepresented groups and strongly encourage women and persons of color to apply for this position. Applications are due by January 15, 2012.
Johns Hopkins University actively encourages interest from minorities and women.
