Jobs: Neurolinguistics: Assistant Professor, University of Georgia

Editor for this issue: Catherine Adams <catherinlinguistlist.org>


The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Description:

Advertisement for Bio-imaging Positions

The Franklin College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Georgia
invites applications for two (2) tenure track positions at the Assistant or
Associate Professor level to begin August, 2008 in our fast-growing
bio-imaging research core. Faculty are being recruited across disciplines
integral to the development of a University-wide initiative in bio-imaging
research dedicated to addressing today's biomedical health problems.
Examples of appropriate disciplines include, but are not limited to,
Anthropology, the Biological Sciences, Computer Science, Linguistics,
Mathematics, Neuroscience, Physics, Psychology, and Statistics. Faculty are
expected to use as their primary research tools those technologies
currently in the state-of-the-art Bio-Imaging Research Center (BIRC), one
of the few research-dedicated centers of its kind in the nation, including
high-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI, fMRI, DTI, MRA, MRS, and MNS
capabilities), magnetoencephalography (MEG), and/or dense-array
electroencephalography (EEG). These technologies allow for exquisite
structural and functional imaging of the brain and central nervous system,
as well as muscle, and bone. We seek outstanding scholars engaged in high
impact research, regardless of specific research focus. Successful
candidates are expected to develop nationally recognized research lines and
successfully compete for extramural funding. Successful candidates will be
housed in and be considered for promotion and tenure within their primary
department, with appointments to the BIRC.

The Bio-Imaging Research Center, or BIRC
(http://www.uga.edu/psychology/BIRC/facilities/index.htm), is housed in the
newly constructed Paul D. Coverdell Biomedical Health Sciences Building. It
is a 9,000 square foot research suite dedicated to bio-imaging research for
the good of the State of Georgia and the nation. The technology in the BIRC
represents an indispensable set of integrated tools for biomedical research
and an exceptional opportunity for academic researchers. Together they
enable exquisite high-spatial resolution tissue imaging in humans and
animals via magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and integrate with high
temporal resolution data of brain activity (MEG, EEG). Potential for
collaborations are available across the University and may include the
Biomedical Health Sciences Institute and its new Neuroscience Degree
program; the Regenerative Bioscience Center; Nanotechnology;
Bioengineering; Developmental Biology; the Institute of Behavioral
Research; the Institute of Gerontology; and probable collaborations with
the Medical College of Georgia, Emory, the Shepherd Center and Georgia Tech.

Candidates should send via email a letter of application describing
research and teaching interests, a curriculum vita (as an attachment) and
arrange to have four letters of reference sent electronically to Dr. D.R.
McCreary, mccrearyuga.edu, and by snail mail to Chair, Bio-Imaging Search
Committee, c/o L. Stephen Miller, PhD, Bio-Imaging Research Center at the
address given below. Snail mail may include reprints/preprints and other
documents. The Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, its many units, and
the University of Georgia are committed to increasing the diversity of its
faculty and students, and sustaining a work and learning environment that
is inclusive. The University is an EEO/AA institution. Applications
received by January 25, 2008, are assured full consideration.

Application Deadline: 25-Jan-2008
