The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth College expects to make a tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor (entry-level or advanced) in Computational Neuroscience effective July 1, 2013. We seek individuals who are able to provide high-quality teaching at the undergraduate level and in the graduate program, and have exhibited excellence in independent research. We are interested in applicants who investigate neural circuits and population coding for representation, information processing, and storage. We are particularly interested in applicants who complement departmental strengths in one or more of the following areas: perception, attention, emotion, reward, neural and cognitive representation, and social cognition. Cognitive Neuroscience is one of three areas in the department, along with Behavioral Neuroscience and Social Neuroscience. The department is housed in a state-of-the-art research and teaching facility that includes a dedicated 3T MRI scanner for brain imaging research and animal research facilities. We encourage cross-disciplinary approaches with colleagues in the Neukom Institute for Computational Science, the Geisel School of Medicine, and the Thayer School of Engineering. With an even distribution of male and female students and over a third of the undergraduate student population from minority groups, Dartmouth is committed to diversity and encourages applications from women and minorities. Submit an application including curriculum vitae, a statement of your research interests, PDF files of representative journal reprints or manuscripts, and the contact information for three references.
