Princeton University is committed to the continued expansion and development of its Neuroscience Institute. In addition to other outstanding resources, a newly constructed 248,000 square foot building opened in 2014, housing state-of-the-art facilities for the full range of neuroscientific methods, including human brain imaging, cellular and circuit level imaging in non-human species, studies of non-human primates and computational modeling.

The Princeton Neuroscience Institute invites applications for two positions at the assistant professor level (tenure track) or above. We are particularly interested in attracting individuals at earlier stages of their career. The applicant's area of expertise should fall into one of the following categories that have been identified as priorities for immediate expansion: Theory, Molecular & Cellular, Circuits/Systems, and Human Cognition.

Key selection criteria will include 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 are particularly interested in applicants pursuing research directions with significant conceptual and/or empirical integration across traditional disciplinary boundaries. The successful candidate will join the Princeton 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. Princeton is especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute, through their research, teaching, and/or service, to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.

Please submit a curriculum vitae, a brief research description, and contact information for three references at https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/3984. Applications will be reviewed starting on November 30, but the search will remain open until the position is filled. These positions are subject to the University's background check policy.
