The Department of Psychology at Bryn Mawr College invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Computational Neuroscience to begin August 1, 2024. We welcome scholars using computational methods to investigate the interface between psychological/neuroscience phenomena. We are looking for candidates who have a theoretically and methodologically sophisticated research program and can meaningfully incorporate undergraduate students in such research. The successful candidate will be expected to teach a computationally focused survey course in neuroscience, a seminar and lab course in their area of expertise, and contribute to service courses (e.g., Research Methods and Statistics; Introduction to Neuroscience). Candidates are also expected to be part of the department’s efforts to develop and teach a diverse and inclusive curriculum, including interdisciplinary programs and other college-wide initiatives such as the 360 Program, Emily Balch Seminars and/or the Data Science Minor. Candidates should hold a doctoral degree in Psychology, Neuroscience, or a closely allied field and must have completed all Ph.D. requirements by the start date. Postdoctoral experience is desirable.
To apply for this position, candidates must submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching philosophy, research statement, and a statement of demonstrated commitment to diversity and inclusion to the Department of Psychology Search Committee via Interfolio at: http://apply.interfolio.com/136166. Candidates are asked to indicate which service courses (Research Methods and Statistics and/or Introduction to Neuroscience) they would be able to teach in their teaching statement. Applications received by January 22, 2024 will receive full consideration. In addition, candidates should arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted via Interfolio to the Department of Psychology Search Committee.
