aspects of their work (perception, language, reasoning) might find  
the following opening of interest.

The Rutgers Center for Cognitive Science (RuCCS) at the New Brunswick  
Campus of Rutgers University is searching for a new director.  The

decision making, problem solving, reasoning, learning and knowledge  
formation.  RuCCS has 22 jointly appointed faculty members and 30  
associates who play an active role in the intellectual life of the  
Center.  The Center promotes the integration of techniques and  
knowledge drawn from a wide variety of fields, primarily psychology,  
computer science, linguistics and philosophy.  The Center offers a  
Certificate for graduate students and a minor and major for  
undergraduates.

Candidates should be at the Full Professor level.  Salary is
