Postdoctoral Research Associate in Cognitive Modelling, Department of Psychological Sciences, University of Liverpool, UK

https://www.liv.ac.uk/working/jobvacancies/currentvacancies/research/r-584962/

We are seeking to fill a postdoctoral position in cognitive modelling (31,644 - 36,661 pa), 
to work on the CHREST (Chunk Hierarchy and REtrieval STructures, www.chrest.info) cognitive 
architecture. This project aims to expand the range of empirical phenomena  uncovered by CHREST. 
Whilst the exact phenomena  will be decided together upon appointment, possible domains include 
expert behaviour, implicit learning, short-term memory and concept formation. Broader questions 
might include bounded rationality, the use of strategies, formal analyses and comparison of CHREST 
with alternative cognitive models or architectures. You will work under the direction of Professor 
Fernand Gobet. You should have a PhD in Cognitive Science, Computer Science or Psychology. You must 
have experience in computational modelling, ideally with a publication record on this topic. Good 
written and verbal communication skills are essential. A track record of publications on cognitive 
modelling is desirable. A good knowledge of object-oriented and functional programming techniques, 
and experience in Java, C/C++, Lisp and/or Scheme would be advantageous. The post is available for 
3 years and is expected to start before the beginning of April 2014.
