The W.M. Keck Science Department of Claremont McKenna College, Pitzer College and Scripps College invites applications for a tenure-track appointment in Neuroscience at the Assistant Professor level to begin Fall 2021. The department houses a wide spectrum of faculty members in neuroscience, biology, chemistry, physics, and environmental analysis for three of the five undergraduate Claremont Colleges. The neuroscience program extends across all five undergraduate Claremont Colleges. Many faculty members participate in collaborative research and teaching, within the Claremont Colleges, as well as with research groups at nearby colleges and universities. We seek an interdisciplinary neuroscientist who is committed to excellence in teaching and who will develop a vibrant research program that includes computational tools and engages undergraduate students. This hire will teach a course using computational tools in neuroscience, contribute to required courses in the neuroscience major, and develop a course in their field. Candidates will be asked to discuss their ability to teach a diverse student body and contribute to fostering diversity in the department. A Ph.D. degree is required. Competitive candidates will have post-doctoral experience and a record of scholarly publication.

Upload a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy, a description of proposed research with major equipment needs, a diversity statement, and the names and e-mail addresses of three references. Please have your references upload reference letters to the following email address: neurosciencesearch@scrippscollege.edu.  Any inquiries may be addressed to Dr. Melissa Coleman at mcoleman@kecksci.claremont.edu. Additional information about Neuroscience (neuro.kecksci.claremont.edu) and the department (www.kecksci.claremont.edu) can be found online. Review of applications will begin March 1, 2021, and the position will remain open until filled. Funding for this position is conditioned on the Department returning to pre-COVID enrollment patterns.
