Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Aging and Health - Psychological Sciences, Rice University

Tenure-track assistant professor position in aging and health - Rice University

Applications are invited for a tenure-track assistant professor position in aging and health, specifically with respect to the cognitive and affective aspects of aging and their neural basis. The research foci might include, but are not limited to, aging and memory, aging and executive attention, cognitive decline and emotional health, interventions for age-related changes in cognition and affect, and the relation of cognitive and affective changes to physical health. The successful candidate would join the Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience area in the Department of Psychological Sciences at Rice University.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in psychology or a related field, with a background in cognitive or affective neuroscience. Assistant Professors are expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses and perform research in their specialized area. Therefore, the ideal candidate will hold promise for a national/international reputation in research on aging and its neural basis; an outstanding record of publications; evidence or promise of external grant funding; excellence in teaching undergraduate and graduate students; and the ability to contribute to a university focused on enhancing diversity. We encourage applicants from diverse background to apply.

Rice University is a highly selective institution located in Houston, Texas, with outstanding opportunities for collaboration within Rice (e.g., with Rice Center for Neuroengineering), and with researchers at the adjacent Texas Medical Center, the largest medical center in the world. The Texas Medical Center provides access to research-dedicated imaging facilities (e.g., CAMRI, Baylor College of Medicine) and patient populations. Rice University is located in Houston, Texas, the 4th largest city in the United States of America. Houston is a dynamic multicultural city with an affordable cost of living.

The hiring decision process will begin October 15, 2018, and applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Applicants should submit a cover letter, vita, reprints (or optionally URL link to reprints) for 3-4 publications, research and teaching statements, and contact information for four references. Submit applications to Rice University's RiceWorks system at: http://jobs.rice.edu/postings/16104. Once your application is received, your references will be contacted to upload letters to the website.
