The Department of Psychology invites applications for three tenure-track Assistant Professors with research interests in cognitive neuroscience. The target appointment date is August 16, 2012.
Candidates must have demonstrated the ability to conduct research that augments and complements our existing technical expertise in brain stimulation, event related potentials, and magnetic resonance imaging using our 3T Siemens Trio (see www.mccauslandcenter.sc.edu for more information), and expertise in an area of cognitive neuroscience. The area of expertise is open for two of the positions, including but not limited to language, attention, and perception. The third position is focused on memory. A Ph.D. or MD in a relevant discipline is required, as successful applicants are expected to lead their own research program and teach. Applicants must demonstrate potential to acquire external grant funding. Teaching and postdoctoral experience is strongly preferred. Salary is commensurate with experience.
Applicants should submit a letter describing their interests and credentials, curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, accomplishments, three letters of recommendation and copies of selected publications.
