--------Message 1 of 2: KLI Fellowships - Correction---------

KLI Scholarships Available

The Konrad Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition Research (KLI) in Altenberg/Vienna (Austria) invites applications to two of its scholarship programs: the KLI Postdoctoral Grant program and the KLI Visiting Scholarship program.

The KLI is a private, non.profit institution which primarily supports theoretical research in evolutionary developmental biology as well as in evolutionary cognitive science.  The KLI also runs a small animal facility for selected empirical projects in evolution and cognition research.

Candidates for Postdoctoral Grants must have received their Ph.D. or equivalent within the previous five years; substantial publications are required at the time of application.  Postdoctoral grants run for one year, extendable for a second year pending review.  Postdoctoral Grants are to be used for subsistence, travel, and other costs related to conducting research at the KLI.

Candidates for Visiting Scholarships should have advanced degrees in one or more disciplines relevant to their research and show evidence of substantial scholarly accomplishment and/or professional experience in the areas they propose to work in.  They may apply for visits whose duration ranges from one week to several months, and which are renewable at the discretion of the KLI Board of Directors.  Visiting Scholarships cover travel and nearby accommodation provided by the Institute.

Both Postdoctoral and Visiting Scholars are expected to work at the Institute, which is located in the Lorenz mansion outside of Vienna, and to actively participate in the seminars, round table discussions, workshops, and other activities organized by the Institute.

The next application deadline for both categories is December 15, 2001.  At this time, the KLI will favor applications of an interdisciplinary nature related to theoretical evolutionary and developmental biology.

Interested scholars from all nationalities are invited to send short descriptions of their intended research along with their curriculum vitae (in English) to the Scientific Manager of the KLI: Prof. Dr. Werner Callebaut, Konrad Lorenz Institute for Evolution and Cognition Research, Adolf-Lorenz-Gasse 2, A-3422 Altenberg, Austria; fax +43 2242 32 390 4; e-mail <[log in to unmask]> by December 15, 2001.  They may then be asked to submit a formal application and a more detailed project description.  All formal project proposals will be externally reviewed.  Fellowship recipients will be announced in March 2002.

--------Message 2 of 2: CFP, "Unconscious Cognition and Evolution"---------

Call for Papers
The New England Institute for Cognitive Science and Evolutionary Psychology (NEI) invites papers for an historic international conference on "Unconscious Cognition and Evolution".
The notion of unconscious mental events has been discussed and debated for at least the past two hundred years, with no resolution. The conference will explore the many contentious issues and problems surrounding the concept of unconscious mental processes from a variety of disciplinary perspectives and methodologies, including but not confined to the biology of self-deception, language processes, unconscious social cognition, the philosophical status of the unconscious, the role of affect, and neuroscientific findings. Conference papers will be published in the journal Theoria et Historia Scientiarum.

The conference is to be held August 23-24, 2002, at the University of New England, Portland, Maine. Papers should explore some aspect of unconscious cognition and its evolutionary bases or directly related processes.
Proposals should be received no later than March 1st 2002.
Send detailed proposals along with a brief bio to either Dr. David L. Smith, or Dr. Robert E. Haskell, NEI, University of New England, 11 Hills Beach Road, Biddeford, Maine 04005, USA.
