The Department of Psychology at Cornell University invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position in systems and behavioral neuroscience, at the Assistant Professor level. Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent degree, relevant postdoctoral experience, and a strong record of published research.

We are seeking innovative, independently-minded investigators with research interests that integrate central nervous system function and behavior. Research areas of interest include, but are not limited to, sensory or motor systems, learning and memory, cognition and decision-making, evolution and development, genetics and genomics, social behavior and communication, theory and computation, and the mechanisms of attentional, affective/emotional, or hormonal regulation of neural systems.

Successful candidates may employ a variety of research techniques and will seek to leverage the technological resources and collaborative environment of Cornell University to enhance their research program. Candidates who pursue integrative research questions that embrace the complexities of natural environments are particularly encouraged. Candidates are expected to establish a vigorous, externally funded, and internationally recognized research program, and to teach at the graduate and undergraduate levels.

Review of applications will begin October 15 and continue until the position is filled. Applicants must upload into Academic Jobs online at a cover letter, curriculum vitae, along with both a Research Statement and Teaching Statement. Applicants should also arrange to have three confidential letters of recommendation submitted through Academic Jobs online.
