Postdoc vacancy 'Cognitive systems in interaction' in Groningen

A postdoc position is available in the Multi-agent Systems Group in the Institute of Artificial Intelligence (ALICE) at the University of Groningen. The candidate will join the five-year Vici project "Cognitive systems in interaction: Logical and computational models of higher-order social cognition" of prof.dr. Rineke Verbrugge, comprising six researchers.

In the Vici project, we investigate children's development and adults' limitations in applying higher-order reasoning, using a close-knit combination of empirical research and formal modeling. Whereas first-order social cognition has been intensely investigated, higher-order social cognition is far less well-understood. This Vici project aims to apply improved understanding of higher-order social reasoning to design realistic logics, ready for implementation in systems supporting mixed human-computer teams.

Deadline for applications: January 15th, 2010. For more information, see http://loriweb.org/?p=2113 or http://www.rug.nl/bcn/news/jobs (vacancy number 209395), or contact prof.dr. Rineke Verbrugge at .
