Faculty Position in Human Social/Affective/Cultural Neuroscience
The Department of Psychology at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, invites applications for a faculty position (Assistant or Associate Professor) focusing on social/affective/cultural neuroscience in healthy populations, which may include research that touches on cognitive, clinical and/or developmental processes as well. The successful candidate will likely be a faculty member who would affiliate with the Social Psychology area of the Department. Preference will be given to individuals whose methods include brain imaging (e.g., fMRI, EEG, eCog), genetics/epigenetics, biomarkers or stimulation techniques (e.g., tDCS; TMS) paired with behavioral studies. This is a tenure-track university year appointment. The expected start date is September 1, 2018.
Successful candidates must have a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline (Psychology or Neuroscience) by the time the position starts, and a commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching. New faculty hired at the Assistant Professor level will be expected to establish an independent research program. More senior applicants should have a well-established, externally-funded research program with an excellent international reputation.
Please submit a letter of intent, curriculum vitae, a statement of current and future research plans, a statement of teaching philosophy and experience, and evidence of teaching excellence (if available).
