New program at Indiana University

The Cognitive Science Program at Indiana University invites
applications from outstanding students for its NSF-funded graduate
training program in the dynamics of brain-body-environment systems
in behavior and cognition. Students trained in philosophy are within the target population for this program.

The goal of the program is to train graduate students to think
across traditional levels of analysis in the cognitive, behavioral
and brain sciences. In order to accomplish this goal, we have
developed new courses in situated, embodied and dynamical cognitive
science, a professional development seminar, summer research
internships, an annual research showcase and a colloquium series
offering extended opportunities for trainees to interact with
visiting speakers.

Benefits for students entering this program include a $30,000 annual
stipend, full tuition, and coverage of additional fees and health insurance.

Our interdisciplinary training group includes cognitive science
faculty from the Departments of Psychological and Brain Sciences,
Physics, and History & Philosophy of Science, as well as from the
School of Informatics and Computing. In addition, we have strong
partnerships with top researchers in the fields of dynamical,
embodied and situated approaches to behavior and cognition, both
nationally and internationally.

Applications are due January 15. For more information, contact Dr.
Randall Beer at or visit

Our program promotes and values a diverse scientific community.


I'm eyeing this program, what about you guys?
