Location: BINGHAMTON, NY Category: Faculty Posted On: Tue Oct 3 2017 Job Description:
The Department of Psychology at Binghamton University (SUNY) invites applications for a appointment at the Assistant Professor or Associate Professor (tenured) level to join our behavioral neuroscience faculty. We are seeking a researcher with interests in alcohol/addictions who would complement and extend the ongoing research of our NIAAA-funded Developmental Exposure Alcohol Research Center (DEARC) and whose expertise would enhance our pre- and post-doctoral T32 training program in Developmental Neuroadaptations in Alcohol and Addictions (DNA2)
The specific area(s) of research expertise and technical approaches to be used are open, although researchers with a focus on neural circuit mechanisms and who emphasize mechanistic studies of the causal relationships between neurobiological processes and neurobehavioral pathology are particularly encouraged to apply. In addition to joining our active and collaborative group of researchers, the successful candidate will be expected to contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching (experience with the teaching of neuroanatomy is an advantage), as well as to the mentoring of pre- and postdoctoral trainees. More information about the department is available at http://www2.binghamton.edu/psychology. Queries about the position can be directed to Drs. Terrence Deak (firstname.lastname@example.org) or J. David Jentsch (email@example.com), co-chairs of the search committee.
