Research environment
The Interacting Minds Centre for the Study of Cognition, Communication and Culture: Specific abilities for interaction are a key to being human. Interactions affect our bodies, our minds, our brains and the world we live in. We are, however, only beginning to understand even the most basic mechanisms. Successful interaction is critical for cooperation, coordination and learning. When this fails, confusion and conflict abound. In many clinical disorders, interactions that otherwise seem automatic may be difficult or outright impossible.

The Interacting Minds Centre (IMC) provides a transdisciplinary platform to study human interaction. It involves researchers from the humanities, social sciences, cognitive sciences, biology and clinical research. This is necessary, because through interactions, humans construct worlds that are at once physical, economic, symbolic and normative. We will therefore study the interplay between three related topics: cognition, communication and culture. Bringing these fields together to bridge topics related to human interaction makes the IMC a unique methodological and theoretical centre of research and inquiry.

The IMC is funded by Aarhus University in 2012-16 as part of the interdisciplinary research initiative. Funding from 2016 onwards is presently under negotiation.

The School of Culture and Society
The Interacting Minds Centre for the Study of Cognition, Communication and Culture is anchored at the School of Culture and Society, which deals with the interaction between culture and society in time and space:
– From the traditional disciplines of the humanities and theology to applied social research
– From antiquity to the issues facing contemporary societies
– From familiar Danish cultural forms to other very different worlds
– From local questions to global challenges.

The school’s goal is to produce compelling research with an international resonance, as well as offering teaching and talent development of high quality. The school is closely linked to society, both in Denmark and abroad, and contributes to social innovation, research communication and further and continuing education.

Qualification requirements
Applicants should hold a PhD or equivalent academic qualifications.

Deadline
All applications must be made online and received by: 11.04.2016

Aarhus University is a modern, academically diverse and research-intensive university with a strong commitment to high-quality research and education and the development of society nationally and globally. The university offers an inspiring research and teaching environment to its 44,500 students and 11,500 employees, and has an annual budget of EUR 830 million.
