Three postdoctoral positions will be available beginning on July 1, 2013.The initial appointment is for one year, with a possible extension to a second year. The SAGE Center Junior Fellowship will foster interdisciplinary research in the study of brain-mind interaction at the postdoctoral level. We are seeking exceptional scholars who will engage in research and participate in teaching graduate-level courses at UCSB. In addition to developing research programs in close collaboration with individual faculty, Junior Fellows will enjoy special privileges, including access to Visiting SAGE Scholars and attendance at regular group meetings to collaborate and share information about the role of psychology, cognitive neuroscience, economics, political science, anthropology, biology, and philosophy on the study of mind. To be eligible for the Junior Fellows program, a candidate must be at an early stage of his or her postdoctoral career.


Proposed research topics must be related to brain-mind interaction. We encourage candidates to apply as an interdisciplinary team with a common research topic; individual applicants may propose any suitable topic. If no viable team application is selected, the search committee will strive to create a team based on common interests of the top individual applicants.

Team applicants, please send:


1. A complete CV, published article and three letters of recommendation for each candidate
2. A statement of research interests that outlines your team’s proposed topic, the expected contributions of each team member, and a description of how your team’s interests complement the goals of the SAGE Center.
