 Computational Aspects of Cognitive Science

 NSF Graduate Research Training Program
 Cornell University

The Graduate Fields of Computer Science and Cognitive Studies at Cornell
University announce a research training program for PhD students who wish
to focus their studies on computational aspects of cognitive science in
general, and on human computation in particular. Funding for five graduate
trainees is provided by the National Science Foundation and awarded through
the Cornell Graduate School.

Program description: Award recipients pursue a PhD in Computer Science
and a minor in Cognitive Studies. In addition to the standard Computer
Science program, each trainee will receive a firm grounding in formal and
computational approaches to language and cognition, and will bring that
training to bear on interdisciplinary research problems that connect
Computer Science with other disciplines such as Linguistics, Philosophy, or
Psychology. Examples of focus areas include Artificial Intelligence,
Computational Linguistics, Formal Models of Human Computation, Human and
Automated Inference, Intelligent Information Retrieval, Learning Theory,
Robotics, User-machine Interfaces, and Vision.

Stipend: Each award carries a stipend of $14,100 per year, plus tuition
and fees, extendible for up to five years of study (assuming continuation
of the grant by NSF).

Eligibility: Award recipients must be admitted to, and continue in good
standing in, the Computer Science PhD program at Cornell University. Only
US citizens and permanent residents are eligible for traineeship
appointments. Minority applicants, women applicants, and applicants with
disabilities are especially encouraged.

Application procedure: Formal application to the NSF Graduate Research
Trainee Program occurs through the Cornell Graduate School. Applicants
should apply to the PhD program in Computer Science and indicate with their
application that they wish to be considered for a traineeship in
Computational Aspects of Cognitive Science. Application material may be
requested from:
