Please take note of this new faculty position in my department and feel free to forward it to those who might be interested in the position:
The Department of Psychology at the University of Nevada Las Vegas invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor appointment in neuroscience to begin August 2014. The applicant's specific research area within neuroscience is open. However, we are particularly interested in candidates with interests in computational neuroscience, or structural/functional brain mapping and connectivity that can add to the department's existing neuroscience research. We also welcome individuals who can interface with established and emerging research programs in Las Vegas investigating neurodegenerative disorders or autism spectrum disorders. The successful applicant would be expected to add to the department's growing neuroscience program by teaching graduate and undergraduate courses as well as mentoring student research. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Psychology, Neuroscience, or a related field, and must have evidence of strong scholarly work and the potential for extramural funding. Postdoctoral experience is a plus.
Initial reviews will begin December 1, 2013 and will continue until the position is filled. Full details about the position, including instructions for the on-line application process, are posted at the departmental website,http://psychology.unlv.edu, and at UNLV's on-line applicant portal, https://hrsearch.unlv.edu. Materials should be addressed to Jefferson Kinney, Search Committee Chair, at the on-line application address.
