The Wright State Research Institute (WSRI), a component of Wright State University in Dayton Ohio, is hiring a Computational Cognitive Scientist with expertise in the areas of human and machine learning. Interested applicants can apply here: https://jobs.wright.edu/postings/11106
This is an excellent opportunity for someone who recently received their PhD and is seeking a career path outside the traditional academic route, but who values the intellectual dynamism of a university environment. Because WSRI is a relatively young organization, this is also a great opportunity for a motivated individual to get in on the ground floor and help shape the future research direction of WSRI's cognitive science portfolio. We are especially interested in candidates who possess a high degree of self-direction and who are willing to grow into a leadership role over time.
The Computational Cognitive Scientist (CCS) position is a full time, permanent position. Initially, the CCS will conduct research in support of an Ohio state-funded project called Human-Centered Big Data, which aims to make "black box" machine learning systems -- including, but not limited to, deep neural nets -- more transparent to human users. The CCS will also have the opportunity to contribute to a wide range of other projects focused on modeling and improving human cognition at both the individual and group levels.
Applicants must be US citizens.
