FACULTY POSITIONShanghai New York University (NYU Shanghai) invites applications for several assistant
(tenure-track), associate (tenured), and full professor (tenured) positions from candidates with
research programs in systems, computational, and cognitive neuroscience. The recruited faculty will also become members of a new neuroscience research institute, with the primary goal of
understanding the mechanisms by which neural circuits in the brain generate cognition and flexible behavior. Neuroscientists at NYU Shanghai will also have the opportunity to interact and
collaborate with researchers in Economics, Mathematics, Data Science and Engineering.
Candidates must have completed a Ph.D. or equivalent by the time of application. The successful
candidates will be expected to develop an independent, extramurally-funded research program, play a key role in the growth of the new Neuroscience Institute, and to teach in NYU Shanghai.
Applications should be submitted by January 1, 2014 for appointments to begin as early as July
NYU Shanghai is the first Sino-US higher education joint venture to grant a degree that is
accredited in the US as well as in China. A research university with liberal arts and sciences at
its core, NYU Shanghai resides in one of the world's great cities, which is also a vibrant intellectual community (http://shanghai.nyu.edu/).
New York University has established itself as a Global Network University, with three degree
granting campuses - New York, Shanghai, and Abu Dhabi - complemented by 12 additional academic centers across five continents. NYU Shanghai faculty may spend time at NYU New York and other sites of NYU's global network engaging in both research and teaching. NYU Shanghai faculty will also have the opportunity to be affiliated with the Center for Neural Science, the Neuroscience Institute of the NYU School of Medicine, the Department of Psychology, and/or with other suitable academic units at NYU New York.
The terms of employment in NYU Shanghai are comparable to U.S. institutions in terms of research startup funds and compensation, and include housing and educational subsidies for children.
Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a statement of research and teaching interests,
electronic copies of up to three recent relevant publications, and the names and addresses of three
or more individuals willing to provide letters of reference. Please visit our website at
