Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience


The Department of Psychology at the University of Notre Dame invites applications for a

tenure-track assistant professor position in Developmental Cognitive

Neuroscience that will begin in the Fall of 2022. We are seeking individuals who are

conducting novel and innovative research in any area of Developmental Cognitive

Neuroscience. Any age focus across the lifespan is welcome, from infancy to older

adulthood. The successful applicant will be expected to demonstrate and maintain

excellence in their research area that has the potential to be externally funded, teach

undergraduate and doctoral-level courses that advance curriculum, mentor

undergraduate and doctoral students, and supervise theses and dissertations. The

Department of Psychology has a strong culture of collaborative and integrative work

within and across program areas, and scholars who can bridge their core

developmental interests with complementary departmental strengths in cognition, brain

and behavior, clinical, and quantitative psychological sciences are particularly

attractive. The Department houses labs that use a variety of neurophysiological and

neuroendocrine assessment methods (EEG, TMS, eyetracking, salivary cortisol and

stress biomarkers), including MRI at off-campus clinics. Applicants whose research

complements and expands our existing expertise are especially encouraged to apply.

The College of Arts and Letters at the University of Notre Dame is investing heavily in

the Psychology Department, achieving several new hires in recent years. The University

and Psychology department are committed to building the research methodologies and

teaching resources to further the mission of our Neuroscience and Behavior Program

( South Bend and

surrounding areas offer high quality of life, low cost of living, and substantial choice and

availability in housing within urban, suburban, and rural settings. Recent urban planning

into proximity. The South Bend area is also close to Lake Michigan beaches and resort

towns, as well as the Chicago metro area and suburbs, which are readily accessible by

car and train.
