A successful candidate will have a history of publishing original research in ecological-dynamical approaches to perception-action or cognition using methods such as dynamical or computational modeling, network theory, nonlinear time series and signal processing methods, or advanced analytics for large, complex data sets. A successful candidate will also have a history of obtaining external funding (as PI, Co-PI, or Co-I) or demonstrate evidence of training or professional development activities for enhancing grant writing skills.
