Vienna Research Group Leader "Cognitive Sciences"
Applications are being invited for outstanding early-career scientists (2-8
years post PhD), interested in building up their first independent research
group in the field of "Cognitive Sciences" at the University of Vienna.
The aim of this announcement is to source exceptional candidates, who, once
selected, will then go on to submit an application together with an
experienced proponent at the University of Vienna, to the current call for
young investigators by the Vienna Science and Technology Fund (WWTF):
In the case of a successful funding decision, the research group would be
financed 6-8 years, with 1.5 million EUR being provided by the WWTF,
supplemented by an additional contribution from the University itself. After
a successful interim evaluation, the University of Vienna will offer the
group leader a tenure-track position.
Applicants should have exceptional promise, or a proven record of research
achievement, in the field of Cognitive Sciences, and provide strong evidence
of their potential to make a significant contribution to the systematic
understanding of cognitive processes in humans, animals and/or machines.
Applications, including a CV and a short statement of the intended research
project, should be sent ***to the respective contact person at the potential
hosting lab*** by no later than 30th April 2013.
A selection of possible hosting labs at the University of Vienna is
available online at https://forschung.univie.ac.at/cognitive sciences/.
