The Department of History, Philosophy and the Social Sciences (HPSS) at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) invites applications for a one year full-time Assistant Professor in Residence in Cognitive Science starting in fall of 2019.
Rhode Island School of Design recognizes diversity and inclusivity as fundamental to its learning community and integral to an art and design education. We welcome candidates whose experience in teaching, scholarship, or service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence.
We are seeking a scholar in cognitive science whose work explores the mind and mental processes, including possible focal areas on language development and linguistics, memory, information processing, sensation and perception, cognitive neuroscience, and/or philosophical understandings of the mind and mental processes. The ideal candidate would situate their work within an art and design context, recognizing how artists and designers might benefit from a greater understanding of mental processes. We seek candidates who demonstrate quality undergraduate teaching, can teach broadly in their field, and represent various aspects of their discipline within the department.
