 The Cognitive Science Initiative is seeking applications from Princeton Ph.D. students to become Graduate Student Fellows in Cognitive Science. To be eligible, students must be post-generals, and plan to be in residence at Princeton throughout AY 15-16. Students from any departments/programs are eligible to apply if their dissertation work is related to cognitive science. Students with DCE status in AY 15-16 are also eligible.

To be considered, please send the following materials *as a single PDF* to the chair of the organizational committee, Sarah-Jane Leslie <>, by Monday April 6th:

1) a cover letter, describing one's involvement with cognitive science
2) a 2-3 page description of one's dissertation project, with particular emphasis on how it relates to cognitive science
3) a CV

Successful applicants will be expected to participate in the Cognitive Science Initiative next year by attending colloquia, presenting in the lunchtime talk series (if they have not already done so), and participating in a few events, such as a panel discussion, for the benefit of undergraduate students interested in cognitive science. Fellows will receive $1000.
