The Department of Psychology at Yale University invites applications for a tenure-track, open-rank faculty appointment in the area of neuroscience beginning July 2023. We are interested in scholars that use neuroscientific approaches to the study of human behavior. An integrative approach that includes TMS, NIRS, EEG, MEG, and MRI and/or computational approaches is welcome and supported by excellent facilities. We are interested in scholars whose research addresses any area of neuroscience relevant to psychology, for example, perception and attention; learning and memory; decision-making; language and communication; motor planning and navigation; and sleep.
Priority will be given to outstanding scholars who will contribute effectively to both the undergraduate and graduate teaching and mentoring programs of the University. Eligible applicants must have a PhD or equivalent degree at the time of hire. Yale University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer. We especially encourage women, members of minority groups, persons with disabilities, and covered veterans to apply.
