Discovery Early Career Research Award

YOUR OPPORTUNITY IN COGNITIVE SCIENCE

The Department of Cognitive Science at Macquarie University is inviting outstanding national and international early career researchers to apply for an Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Early Career Research Award (DECRA) . This represents an excellent opportunity for early career researchers at the forefront of their field, to work at a leading Australian university, to develop their international research profile, and to build a career as a high impact research and innovation leader of the future. Researchers from around the world are eligible to apply if they have been awarded a PhD within the last 5 years (after 1 March 2014), or earlier if they can demonstrate periods of significant career interruption.

THE DEPARTMENT OF COGNITIVE SCIENCE

Macquarie’s Cognitive Science carries out interdisciplinary research investigating the mind and brain. We use a variety of methods – ranging from brain stimulation to philosophy – to understand how the mind and brain “work”. Our keys areas of expertise include:

  • Attention
