Emory University, Department of Psychology and the Yerkes National Primate Research Center, Division of Developmental and Cognitive Neuroscience invite applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level in the area of nonhuman primate behavioral neuroscience. Applicants of particular interest to us include: behavioral neuroscientists who focus on developmental behavioral genetics and work with large populations of nonhuman primates; primate behavioral neuroendocrinologists; primate neuroscientists who use large-scale neural recording and decoding technologies and/or MRI and PET; neuroscientists who manipulate brain activity using cutting-edge pharmacogenetic interventions, transcranial magnetic stimulation, or deep brain stimulation to inform on primate brain neural circuitry. This new hire would likely have synergistic interests with faculty from Psychology, Anthropology, and Yerkes studying social behavior, social determinants of health, stress, memory, decision-making, or other cognitive processes as well as neurobehavioral or developmental aspects of these processes. The department seeks a candidate with strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching. Ph.D. required.
