Assistant Professor: Behavioral Neuroscience

The Psychology Department at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln seeks candidates for a tenure track Assistant Professor in Behavioral Neuroscience to begin August 2019. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in psychology, neuroscience, or related field and a record of achievement in scholarship and teaching. This hire is part of a larger effort to further build strengths in substance use and addiction. In addition to connecting translationally to existing strengths in substance use, experience with rodent or other non-primate animal behavior testing and modern neuroscience techniques are required. Preference will be given to candidates who have expertise in optogenetics, chemogenetics, transgenic animals, in vivo electrophysiology, and/or cellular imaging techniques.

Responsibilities include maintaining an active program of research, such as pursuit of external funding and publishing scholarly research, teaching courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and a willingness to collaborate within and beyond the Department, College, and University. The Department of Psychology has a strong commitment to principles of diversity and actively encourages applications from groups underrepresented in higher education. Review of applications will begin October 15, 2018 and continue until the position is filled. 

To be considered for the position, please go to http://employment.unl.edu, requisition F_180129, and click on “Apply to this job.” Candidates should attach a cover letter expressing interest in the position, their curriculum vitae, research and teaching statements, up to three relevant publications, and contact information for three references. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is committed to a pluralistic campus community through affirmative action, equal opportunity, work-life balance, dual careers, and does not discriminate based on race, color, ethnicity, national origin, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, genetic information, veteran status, marital status, and/or political affiliation in its programs, activities, or employment.  http://www.unl.edu/equity/notice-nondiscrimination
