Requirements

The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in psychology or neuroscience or related field or anticipate completing his or her Ph.D. by June 30, 2018. Postdoctoral research experience is preferred. The ideal candidate will have a research focus that complements one of the areas of interest to the department (e.g. aging, memory and/or dementia, addiction, cognition, and/or perception). The ideal candidate will also demonstrate expertise in one or more human neuroscience-related technologies or tool sets (e.g., functional MRI, anatomic neuroimaging, EEG, TMS, tDCS, fNIRS, computational neuroscience, neuropsychological assessments, etc.). Preference will be given to the candidate whose publication record is clearly and consistently related to use of these tools.

Preferred candidates will demonstrate:

  1. Evidence of an active, high-quality research program with the clear potential for establishing an independent laboratory;
  2. Evidence of ability to deliver high-quality undergraduate and/or graduate instruction and mentoring;
  3. Evidence of the capability to obtain external research funding;
  4. Evidence of interdisciplinary research; and
  5. Commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Although the area of specific research interest within neuroscience is open, successful candidates will be expected to be able to teach core curricular classes within the Department of Psychology, including cognitive neuroscience and/or biological psychology, and supervise laboratory courses in these areas.
