The Program in Cognitive Science, in collaboration with the University Center for Human Values invites applications for a postdoctoral position in the Cognitive Science of Values. The successful candidate will be based in the laboratory of Dr. Tania Lombrozo in the Department of Psychology. We aim to support a highly promising scholar with a background in cognitive science or a related discipline, such as psychology, empirically informed/experimental philosophy, or formal epistemology. The scholar's research agenda should address a topic that engages with both cognitive science and values, such as the role of moral values in decision making, or the role of epistemic values in belief revision. The proposed research is expected to yield both theoretical and empirical publications. Candidates will be expected to contribute the equivalent of one course each year to the University Center and/or the Department. This contribution may be fulfilled by teaching a course on a topic related to cognitive science of values (subject to approval by Project Directors, the Department Chair or Chairs, and the Office of the Dean of the Faculty) or service to the Project or Center of some other sort, subject to approval of the Project and Center Directors. If teaching a semester-long course, the successful candidate would carry the additional title of Lecturer. The candidate will be appointed in the Program in Cognitive Science and will be invited to participate in programs of the University Center for Human Values.
These materials should be submitted online by January 8, 2020 for full consideration. We cannot accept application materials by any other method. Letters of reference are to be submitted by the end of the business day on January 15, 2020 (5:00PM EST).
