Tenure Track Professorship (W1) "Computational Cognitive Science", University of Stuttgart, Germany

The Stuttgart Centre for Simulation Science at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, invites applications for a Tenure Track Professorship (W1) "Computational Cognitive Science".

The new professor is expected to cover the field of Computational Cognitive Science both in research and teaching, specifically connecting modern data-driven and computational methods for the modeling and simulation of cognitive processes and their applications to human-computer interaction. The position is one of four new professorships that are established at the University of Stuttgart through the DFG Cluster of Excellence EXC 2075 "Data-driven Simulation Science (SimTech)". The professor will be jointly appointed at the Stuttgart Center of Simulation Science and the Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering and linked closely to the Human-Computer Interaction and Cognitive Systems group.

We are looking for an ambitious scientist with international standing who will advance the field of Computational Cognitive Science and its respective foundations in Cognitive Science and Computer Science in close interdisciplinary collaboration with researchers from science and engineering as well as from the humanities and the social sciences. Applicants should have made distinguished contributions in at least one of these research areas: • Cognitive modeling and simulation, especially of visual perception • Data-driven and mathematical / statistical modeling of human behavior • Behavioral experiments and evaluation methods • Decision making, human learning and reasoning • Applications of cognitive models and simulations, e.g. in human-robot interaction, computer vision or immersive environments

We encourage excellent young scientists in related areas of (cognitive) neuroscience or psychology, machine learning or artificial intelligence or human-computer interaction to apply.

We expect contributions to teaching in the Bachelor and Master programs of the Stuttgart Center of Simulation Science and of the Department of Computer Science as well as acquisition of third-party funding and active involvement in further collaborative research projects of the University.
