The Department of Brain & Cognitive Sciences (BCS) (http://bcs.mit.edu), in collaboration with the McGovern Institute for Brain Research (MIBR) and the Picower Institute for Learning and Memory (PILM) and the Schwarzman College of Computing (SCC) at MIT are looking to hire multiple tenure-track faculty at the assistant professor level or higher. We strongly encourage applications from all areas, but we are most excited about candidates who work in the following area:

I. Computational approaches to understanding natural intelligence. We are interested in candidates that seek an understanding of natural intelligence by building artificially intelligent systems. We seek candidates with a diverse range of computational tools and methods, including (but not limited to) machine learning, computer vision, robotics, probabilistic modeling, dynamical systems, planning, programming languages, and natural language processing. Candidates from computer science, engineering or related backgrounds that seek to develop collaborations with neuroscientists and cognitive scientists are particularly encouraged to apply. This position will likely have an affiliation with the new MIT Schwarzman College of Computing.

Successful applicants are expected to develop and lead independent, internationally competitive research programs and to share in our commitment to excellence in undergraduate and graduate education by teaching courses and mentoring graduate and undergraduate students. PhD must be completed by start day of employment and some postdoctoral training is preferred.
