Department of Psychology

Texas A&M University

College Station, TX
As part of a broad campus investment in neuroscience, including human neuroimaging, the Department of Psychology (http://psychology.tamu.edu) at Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu) invites applications for two tenure-track positions to begin in Fall 2014. Preference will be given to established investigators (Associate/Full Professor), although outstanding individuals at any level are encouraged to apply. One appointment will be in Behavioral and Cellular Neuroscience with a focus on an individual using cellular, molecular, and/or genetic methods in animal models. The other appointment will be in Cognitive/Social/Affective Neuroscience with a focus on human functional neuroimaging. In both cases, the specific area of research is open, although candidates with research programs complementing existing departmental strengths in learning and memory, emotion regulation, addiction, and plasticity/repair are especially welcome. Candidates will be expected to carry out a vigorous program of grant-supported research, actively participate in graduate training in the Institute for Neuroscience (http://tamin.tamu.edu), and contribute to graduate and undergraduate teaching. State of the art research facilities (http://vpr.tamu.edu/resources/ilsb), an imaging core (http://tips.tamu.edu), and generous start-up funds are available to support these recruitments. Additional faculty positions in neuroscience are expected in the coming months. Applicants should send electronic copies of a letter of intent, curriculum vitae, statement on research and teaching, sample research publications, and three letters of recommendation to Steve Maren (maren@tamu.edu). The search committee will begin reviewing applicants September 1, 2013 and will continue to review new applications until the position is filled. Texas A&M University is an Equal Opportunity Employer and has a policy of being responsive to the needs of dual-career couples.
