HUMAN NEUROSCIENCE FACULTY RECRUITMENT
FLORIDA ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY
The Department of Psychology and Brain Institute (I-BRAIN) at Florida Atlantic University invite applications from outstanding candidates at the Associate Professor level for a tenured position in human neuroscience. Exceptional candidates currently at the rank of Assistant Professor who have well-established and funded research programs may also be considered. Florida Atlantic University is a rapidly growing institution that is investing significant resources to expand neuroscience research and education. As part of this university-wide initiative, the Psychology Department (www.psy.fau.edu) has teamed with the Brain Institute (www.ibrain.fau.edu) to expand the presence of research programs focused on the human brain. We are especially interested in candidates whose research capitalizes on brain-monitoring and/or computational approaches that are suitable for assessing neural mechanisms underlying developmental features of sensory experience, cognition and social engagement. Within the context of computational approaches, we welcome candidates with existing and continuing access to large data sets that can drive and test novel hypotheses. Candidates whose research programs have strong translational implications will be given primary consideration. The ideal candidate will bridge existing strengths in our core program areas and pursue collaborations with faculty within and outside of the department. Leadership opportunities within the Department and Institute regarding education and research opportunities will be considered.
Florida Atlantic University, with its main campus in Boca Raton, FL, supports the training of more than 30,000 students, and is one of the most ethnically diverse institutions in the Florida state university system, with status as a Hispanic-serving institution. Our community features excellent schools, a vibrant and safe community, and a sub-tropical climate conducive to year-round outdoor activities. Candidates should hold a Ph.D. or
equivalent degree and are asked to submit electronic copies of a cover letter, current curriculum vitae, statement of research interests and goals (maximum of two pages), a brief statement of teaching philosophy and history, and at least three letters reference.
Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled. FAU is an equal opportunity employer and encourages applications from candidates from underrepresented groups.
