The Department of Psychology and the interdisciplinary Neuroscience Program at Michigan State University invite applications for two academic year (nine-month) positions, one in behavioral neuroscience and the other in cognitive neuroscience, beginning August 2012. We anticipate hiring at the Assistant Professor level, although candidates of higher rank will also be considered. These positions are part of an expansion of the Neuroscience Program that includes three additional and complementary positions in other departments. All applicants must have a Ph.D. in psychology, neuroscience, or related field at the time of appointment. Successful applicants will be expected to establish a productive and extramurally-funded research program and to contribute to the teaching and service missions of the Department of Psychology and the Neuroscience Program. Outstanding candidates in any area of behavioral or cognitive neuroscience are encouraged to apply. Use of multiple research methodologies and/or strong quantitative expertise is desirable but not required.

Applications should include a curriculum vita, statements of research and teaching interests, and selected reprints. Please also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be emailed to asel@msu.edu (Attn: Neuroscience Search). Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2011, and will continue until suitable candidates are identified. MSU is an affirmative-action, equal-opportunity employer.
