Princeton University is committed to the continued expansion and development of neuroscience on its campus. In addition to other outstanding resources, a newly constructed 248,000 square foot building will open in late fall 2013 housing state-of-the-art facilities for the full range of neuroscientific methods, including human brain imaging, cellular and circuit level imaging in model organisms, structural neurobiology, studies of non-human primates, and computation and theory. These new facilities will support the continued growth of neuroscience at Princeton, including the three new positions described below. We are seeking qualified individuals working at all levels of neuroscience, to study development, learning, memory, perception, attention and higher level cognitive functions in humans and non-human species.
Tenured Full Professor Position
The Princeton Neuroscience Institute invites applications for a tenured appointment at the associate or full professor level to begin on or after September 2014.
Key selection criteria will be research excellence, originality of science, future impact on the field of neuroscience and related disciplines, and leadership capabilities. Applicants must have an excellent record of research productivity and demonstrate the ability to develop a rigorous research program. We seek applicants pursuing research directions with significant conceptual and/or empirical integration across traditional disciplinary boundaries. The appointee could be either an experimentalist or theorist. The successful candidate will join the Neuroscience Institute and may also join a department appropriate to the individual’s background and interests, with possibilities including (but not limited to) Psychology, Molecular Biology, Mathematics, Physics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Applicants should be prepared to teach courses both at the undergraduate and graduate levels in neuroscience.
Please submit a curriculum vitae, a brief research description, and contact information for three references at http://jobs.princeton.edu, requisition # 1300694. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, and the search will remain open until the position is filled.
