Location: Binghamton, NY Category: Faculty Posted On: Fri Oct 5 2018 Job Description:
The Department of Psychology at Binghamton University (SUNY) invites applications for an appointment at either the Assistant Professor (tenure-track) or Associate Professor (tenured) level to join our behavioral neuroscience faculty.
We are seeking a researcher with interests in alcohol/addictions who would complement and extend the ongoing research of our NIAAA-funded Developmental Exposure Alcohol Research Center (DEARC) and whose expertise would enhance our pre- and post-doctoral T32 training program in Development and Neuroadaptations in Alcohol and Addictions (DNA2) (https://www.binghamton.edu/dearc/training/t32/).
The specific area(s) of research expertise and technical approaches to be used are open, although researchers with a focus on neural circuit mechanisms and who emphasize mechanistic studies of the causal relationships between neurobiological processes and neurobehavioral pathology are particularly encouraged to apply. In addition to joining our active and collaborative group of researchers, the successful candidate will be expected to contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching (experience with the teaching of neuroanatomy is an advantage), as well as to the mentoring of pre- and postdoctoral trainees.
The Department of Psychology is dedicated to the goal of building a diverse and inclusive teaching, research, and working environment. Potential applicants who share this goal and who are members of underrepresented groups, women, veterans, and/or persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
Ph.D. degree in psychology, neuroscience or a related discipline. Commensurate with experience and appointment level:
Evidence of, or promise to develop, a vibrant, extramurally-funded, independent program of research
