The Psychology Department in the College of Science at Northeastern University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in cognitive neuroscience to start in the fall of 2019 at the rank of Assistant Professor. We welcome applications from any area of cognitive neuroscience, broadly construed, but are especially interested in candidates whose work integrates experimental and computational approaches to investigate fundamental questions in cognition. Responsibilities will include teaching undergraduate and graduate courses and conducting an independent, externally-funded research program. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in psychology or a related field by the start of the appointment and a record of research commensurate with rank.

Northeastern University is strongly committed to fostering excellence through diversity and enthusiastically welcomes applications from members of groups that have been, and continue to be, underrepresented in academia. Candidates should have experience in, or be able to demonstrate a commitment to, working with diverse student populations and/or in a culturally diverse work and educational environment.

To apply, please go to the application link provided below. All application materials must be submitted through this online recruitment system, where applicants should be prepared to upload a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a research statement, a teaching statement, and up to five representative publications. Applicants should also be prepared to provide information, including an email address, for three references. The references will be contacted by the online recruitment system and asked to provide letters. Inquiries about the position may be directed to Professor Neal Pearlmutter, Search Committee Chair, at the contact information provided below. Review of applications will begin November 15, 2018 and will continue until the position is filled.
