The University of Connecticut (UConn) Department of Psychological Sciences invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position at the rank of assistant professor within the behavioral neuroscience research program (Storrs campus). We seek a candidate with demonstrated scholarly interest in translational neuroscience using cutting-edge, laboratory-based techniques (e.g., optogenetics, chemo-genetics, calcium imaging, molecular/genetic methods, high-density electrophysiological recording techniques) examining function within brain circuits in animal models.
We are particularly interested in applicants whose research, theoretically, logistically, and quantitatively, can link to UConn’s strengths in physiology and neurobiology, pharmacy, systems neuroscience, cognitive science, computation, data science, engineering, and faculty within the Connecticut Institute for the Brain and Cognitive Sciences. The successful candidate will share a commitment to teaching and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students within the Department of Psychological Sciences.
The Department includes Ph.D. concentrations in behavioral neuroscience; clinical psychology; developmental psychology; ecological psychology; industrial and organizational psychology; language and cognition; and social psychology. There are currently 58 full-time faculty and 130 full-time doctoral students. The Department and University have a commitment to pursuing inclusive excellence.
