The Department of Psychology and Neuroscience , jointly with the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences and its Center for Neuroeconomic Studies invite applications for an assistant professor (tenure-track) position in Systems and Integrative Neuroscience to begin Fall 2010. We seek outstanding applicants with interdisciplinary research programs aimed at understanding the neuroeconomics of reward and decision making with relevance to drug addiction using small animal models. An example would be mouse genetic studies of decision making relevant to drug addiction, although all research programs relevant to the topic will be considered. In addition to the development of a nationally-recognized externally-funded research program, faculty responsibilities include undergraduate and graduate teaching. The position will be exclusively hired at the Assistant Professor level and eligible candidates must not have previously held a tenure-track position. The Department of Psychology and Neuroscience is a department with strengths in behavioral neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, clinical, developmental and social psychology. The Duke Institute for Brain Sciences is a campus-wide interdisciplinary institute with a commitment to building an interactive community of brain science research and scholarship. The Center for Neuroeconomic Studies is an interdisciplinary center that unifies research and teaching in the decision neurosciences. All create excellent opportunities for interactions with faculty and students from other departments, schools and programs across campus.
