The Department of Psychology at Emory University invites applications for a tenure-track position at the level of assistant professor with an anticipated start date of August 1, 2018.  We seek applicants to establish an independent, federally-funded program of research aimed at understanding mechanisms of cognition and behavior at biological and psychological levels with a goal of building on Emory’s strengths in behavioral, cognitive, affective, social, computational, developmental, and/or comparative neuroscience.  We also seek applicants with a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching.  Laboratory space for small animals as well as research facilities for humans (including a research-dedicated 3T MRI scanner) are available.  Applicants whose research uses cutting-edge techniques in small animals and bridges to studies with humans are particularly encouraged to apply. Ph.D required.
