[Comp-neuro] PhD positions at Ohio State University, Psychology Department

The Laboratory for Cognitive Modeling and Computational Cognitive
Neuroscience ( ) in the Department of Psychology
at the Ohio State University is looking to accept up to 3 new graduate
students for the incoming class of 2013. We are particularly
interested in applicants with computational training (e.g., computer
science, mathematics, engineering) coupled with a clear interest in
cognitive science, particularly vision (both high- and low-level) and
analogy-making. The new students will be able to join the ongoing
research projects in the lab or formulate related projects of their
own. In particular, there is an opportunity to develop biologically
plausible neural-network models of visual perceptual learning and of
visual analogy-making. For details on how to apply, see

The Ohio State University is home to a vibrant community of cognitive
neuroscientists, cognitive psychologists, and vision scientists in the
Psychology Departments and other departments on campus. There is a
strong focus on computational and mathematical modeling within
psychology as well as interdisciplinary interactions with colleagues
in electrical engineering, computer science, and neuroscience programs
at OSU. For more information on our cognitive neuroscience group or
the Cognitive area, please visit:

Visual cognitive neuroscience is another focus of the graduate program
in cognitive psychology at OSU. Labs in this cluster include:
Dr. Dirk Bernhardt-Walther ( ),
Dr. Julie Golomb (Vision & Cognitive Neuroscience Lab; ),
Dr. Andy Leber (Cognitive Control Lab; ),
Dr. Zhong-Lin Lu (Laboratory of Brain Processes, ),
Dr. Alex Petrov (Laboratory for Cognitive Modeling and Computational
Cognitive Neuroscience; ),
Dr. Per Sederberg (Computational Memory Lab; ), and
Dr. Jim Todd (Vision Lab; ).

Potential graduate students interested in any of the above labs should
apply through the Department of Psychology (Cognitive Program):

Application deadlines:
November 30th, 2012 for international students, and
December 1st, 2012 for domestic students.

We look forward to hearing from you!
