Job Details

The program in Neuroscience at Bates College, a private liberal arts college in Maine, is looking for a two-year Visiting Assistant Professor in the fields of cognitive, affective, or social neuroscience to begin in August of 2022. We are especially interested in candidates whose work is of potential clinical/medical relevance, and which involves human subjects. The successful candidate will show promise of excellence and innovation in both teaching and scholarship and be prepared to teach classes on Introductory Neuroscience, Cognitive Neuroscience (upper-level, with a lab), as well as other classes in the candidate’s broad areas of expertise. A Ph.D. is required by August 1, 2022.

Bates values innovative, inclusive pedagogy and active scholarship, and we seek applicants who can successfully integrate undergraduates in their research. Dedicated laboratory facilities are provided for this position. The College and the Neuroscience Program are strongly committed to enhancing the diversity of our campus community and curriculum. Candidates with demonstrated success in teaching and supporting marginalized, first generation and historically underrepresented students are especially encouraged to apply. Applications from individuals in underrepresented groups and individuals who have followed non-traditional pathways to higher education due to societal, economic, or academic disadvantages are likewise encouraged.

Consideration of candidates will begin on Jan. 28, and continue until the position is filled. Applications should include a cover letter, CV, list of graduate coursework taken, names of three references to be consulted for letters, research statement, teaching statement, and diversity statement. For this last item, please describe how your teaching, scholarship, and/or mentorship could support the College’s historical and ongoing commitment to equity and inclusion. Finalists will be invited to send additional materials such as reprints, sample syllabi, and teaching evaluations. Competitive salary, plus benefits. Housing assistance may be available. Employment is contingent upon successful completion of a background check. For more information about the College and the Program, please visit the Bates website:
