The Department of Cognitive, Linguistic, and Psychological Sciences (CLPS) at Brown University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant or tenured Associate Professor position beginning July 1, 2023. The department plans to hire several new faculty members over the next few years. This search will consider candidates in any area of Behavioral Neuroscience (including Comparative Psychology) and/or Developmental Psychology. We encourage applications from candidates who study the mechanisms of social, cognitive, perceptual, and/or affective processes using empirical, cross-species, and/or computational approaches. In addition to building an externally funded, nationally recognized research program, a successful candidate will provide effective instruction and advising to a diverse group of graduate and undergraduate students, as well as be willing to interact with colleagues from a wide range of disciplines and academic backgrounds. The CLPS department is committed to building a culturally diverse faculty; we strongly encourage applications from individuals historically underrepresented in the academy. The department anticipates making up to two hires in this search.
The CLPS department offers curricular programs in Psychology, Cognitive Science, Linguistics, Cognitive Neuroscience, and Behavioral Decision Science, which creates a multidisciplinary research environment for the study of mind, brain, behavior, and language. The Department is located in a state-of-the-art building in the heart of campus, and is affiliated with many Centers, Institutes, and Programs across the University and in the Providence community. This provides faculty with many shared resources and training opportunities.
