Postdoctoral position at CMU
I am looking for a post-doctoral researcher to work on computational models of dynamic skill acquisition. The central question in this research is how learners bring task relevant knowledge to enable the tuning of a skill while still dealing with the information-processing demands of the task. We are currently pursuing this question in the context of playing a video game but the choice of task is flexible.
We are looking for someone with strong computational modeling skills, preferably with ACT-R experience. The position is funded for at least two years. Besides interacting with other researchers in our lab, the individual could take advantage of the rich intellectual environment that Carnegie Mellon offers.
The person will play a key role in this project with the goal of making a significant advance in the direction of a realistic model of human task learning.
