outstanding applied cognitive scientist for a tenure system appointment at 
the rank of assistant professor effective August 16, 2006. We seek an 
individual to complement our existing applied-cognitive strengths in aging

particularly interested in individuals who investigate higher mental 
processes, such as problem solving, individual or group decision-making, 
analogical or scientific reasoning, mental models or semantic memory, 
acquisition of complex skills, or developmental processes. Quantitative 
methods such as mathematical, statistical, or computational modeling are 
desirable. The person filling this position may reside primarily in any of 
several interest areas within the department (such as cognitive, industrial

courses concerned with the role of cognition in real-world problems. 
Consideration of applications will begin Sept. 15 and continue until a 
suitable candidate is identified. Please send CV, (p)reprints, and three
