Please forward the following announcement to any talented undergraduate
students that may be interested. Note that although this program is offered
through Cognitive Science we are highly interested in involving more
students in robotics, particularly in bridging the areas of perception,
planning, and learning as well as human-robot interaction. Students would
be earning a joint PhD in Cognitive Science and Computer Science and are
provided a generous stipend for two years.

Graduate Traineeships 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.
The goal of the program is to train doctoral 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
Benefits for students entering this program include a $30,000 annual
stipend, tuition, and coverage of additional fees and health
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 December 31. Only U.S. citizens and permanent
residents are eligible for funding through this training program.
