I am looking for a few Ph.D students.
The Ph.D program of the Cognitive Science department at RPI is accepting
applications. Graduate assistantships and other forms of financial
support for graduate students are available.
Prospective graduate students with interests in Cognitive Science,
especially in learning and skill acquisition and in the relation between
cognition and sociality, are encouraged to apply. Prospective applicants
should have background in computer science (the equivalent of a BS
in computer science), and have some prior exposure to artificial
intelligence, connectionist models (neural networks), multi-agent
systems, and other related areas. Students with a Master's degree
already completed are preferred.
RPI is a top-tier research university. This new department has
identified the Ph.D program and research as its primary missions. The
department is conducting research in a number of areas: computational
cognitive modeling, human and machine learning, multi-agent interactions,
neural networks and connectionist models, human and machine reasoning,
artificial intelligence, cognitive engineering, and so on.
