The Department of Psychology at Binghamton University, part of the State University of New York (SUNY) system is seeking multiple exceptional candidates for Assistant and Associate Professor positions (tenure-track and tenured) to begin Fall 2023 as part of a newly funded University research initiative in the Neuroscience of Aging. The mission of the cluster hiring in the Neuroscience of Aging is to develop an internationally recognized translational program to understand the aging brain and age-related changes in behavior. The goal is to become a hub in developing and implementing the most state-of-the-art techniques for the study and treatment of brain disorders associated with normal and pathological aging.
Assistant and Associate/Assistant Professors of Behavioral Neuroscience: We are interested in candidates who use animal models to determine genetic, cellular/molecular, and/or neuroanatomical bases underlying neural network dysfunction and behavior caused by aging and age-related brain disorders like stroke or neurodegenerative disease. Scientific methods are open but will be expected to reflect the current state-of-the-art within contemporary neuroscience.
Assistant Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience: We are interested in candidates using cognitive neuroscience approaches to study cognitive processes such as learning, memory, language, categorization, attention, or perception and age-related changes. We are especially interested in candidates who apply neuroimaging techniques (e.g., fMRI, DTI, and EEG; other approaches are welcome). The department provides a supportive research environment with excellent resources including lab space in a newly renovated building and an MRI facility anticipated for Spring, 2023.
Successful Assistant Professor candidates will be expected to establish an independent research program that will attract external funding; evidence of the capacity to develop such a research program is expected. The successful candidate will join a productive, enthusiastic, and interactive faculty and will contribute to both graduate (PhD) and undergraduate (Psychology and Integrative Neuroscience majors) supervision and instruction. Competitive Associate Professor candidates will be expected to have current, substantive external support. The Psychology Department consists of 36 faculty in three graduate programs: Behavioral Neuroscience, Cognitive and Brain Sciences, and Clinical Science. The department is family-friendly and there is a daycare and preschool on campus. Additional information about the department is available at http://www2.binghamton.edu/psychology.
Binghamton University enrolls approximately 17,700 undergraduate and graduate students, including more than 5,000 students of color and 1,500 international students from 100 countries.

Greater Binghamton is a metropolitan area of about 250,000 with an affordable cost of living and excellent public schools. There are many outdoor and cultural activities demonstrating a unique blend of urban and rural appeal. The employment base of the region is led by the university, electronics and health care.
The Department of Psychology is dedicated to building a diverse and inclusive teaching, research, and working environment. Applicants who share this goal and who are members of underrepresented groups, women, veterans, and/or persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply. Binghamton University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
Completed applications received by November 30, 2022 will receive full consideration. Applications arriving after this date will be reviewed as needed until the position is filled. To apply, please submit a statement of research and teaching interests, curriculum vita, and reprints, along with the names and contact information for three references.
