Postdoctoral Positions at Carnegie Mellon University

The ACT-R group at Carnegie Mellon University is looking for postdoctoral researchers for a number of positions. Candidates with a Ph.D. in cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience, computer science, machine learning or artificial intelligence and an interest in computational cognitive modeling are encouraged to apply.


The first position involves designing neural imaging (EEG) experiments and developing computational (ACT-R) cognitive models of complex skills in dynamic interactive environments to study the effect on performance of workload, strategies and expertise.


The other positions involve developing computational cognitive models of complex skills in dynamic interactive environments and integrating them with deep learning models and explanation systems. The purpose of the project is to provide insights into the processes and representations of the machine learning models to improve trust and interaction with human experts (Explainable AI).


Interested candidates should send inquiries and applications (CV, research interests, references) to John Anderson and Christian Lebiere.
