Faculty Position in Human Affective/Social Neuroscience
The Department of Psychology at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, invites applications
for a faculty position (Assistant or Associate Professor) in the human neurosciences, focusing on
affective and/or social neuroscience, which may include research that touches on cognitive
and/or developmental processes as well. Preference will be given to individuals whose methods
include brain imaging (e.g., fMRI, EEG, eCog), biomarkers (e.g., cortisol) or stimulation
techniques (e.g., tDCS) paired with behavioral studies, focusing either on healthy or clinical
populations. This is a tenure-track university year appointment. The expected start date is
September 1, 2017.
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). Applicants should
also request at least three letters of recommendation from referees. All materials should be
uploaded by September 15, 2016 as a single PDF to https://psychology-lsa.applicantstack.com/x/apply/a2s9hql299mo . For inquiries about the position please
