COMPUTATIONAL NEUROSCIENTIST AT MIDDLEBURY COLLEGE. The Program in Neuroscience invites applications for a tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor with a preferred focus in computational neuroscience or neurogenomics, beginning in Fall 2025. The Program in Neuroscience is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the growing diversity and excellence of the academic community through their teaching, scholarship, and service. Commitment to inclusive pedagogy, mentoring, and advising a diverse population of students is essential. Applicants should have a Ph.D., postdoctoral experience, demonstrated commitment to excellence in teaching, and a proposed research program in computational neuroscience or neurogenomics that involves undergraduate students. The successful candidate is expected to be able to teach a course in cellular and molecular neuroscience and/or behavioral neuroscience. In addition, the candidate will contribute to the neuroscience curriculum with a course in statistics, and an upper-level elective broadly relevant to the field of computational neuroscience or neurogenomics. The candidate will occasionally contribute to Middlebury's First Year Seminar Program and Winter Term course offerings. All faculty at Middlebury College are also expected to contribute to service to the College including, but not limited to, committee membership and serving as Director or Chair of a Program or Department.

Middlebury College is a top-tier liberal arts college with a demonstrated commitment to excellence in both faculty teaching and research. It is also committed to fostering a truly inclusive, open, and supportive learning, teaching, and working environment. The College hires faculty from around the world and a myriad of life experiences, cultures, frames of reference, social identities, and learning perspectives to help cultivate and advance innovation in our curriculum and to provide a rich and varied educational experience to our talented and distinguished student body. To that end, Middlebury College seeks applications from people who would contribute to our increasingly diverse educational community not only through their backgrounds and interests, but in age, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, national origin, religion, and physical ability.

At Middlebury, we strive to make our campus a respectful, engaged community that embraces difference, with all the complexity and individuality each person brings.
