We seek an individual who has exhibited excellence in research and is able to provide high-quality teaching at the graduate and undergraduate level. We are particularly interested in someone who complements our strengths in human regulatory systems (e.g., self, social, or affect regulation). The department is housed in a state-of-the-art research and teaching facility that includes a dedicated research MRI scanner for brain imaging research. With an even distribution of male and female students and over a quarter of the undergraduate student population members of minority groups, Dartmouth is committed to diversity and encourages applications from women and minorities.

Assistant Professor, Systems/Behavioral Neuroscience

The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth College seeks applications for a tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor (entry-level or advanced) effective July 1, 2014.  Exceptional senior candidates may also be considered.  Applications are invited from individuals who have exhibited excellence in independent research and are able to provide high-quality teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.  We are interested in applicants who combine strong behavioral theory with state-of-the-art neurobiological methods to study the mechanisms underlying cognitive and behavioral function using small animals as an experimental model.  We have a particular interest in candidates whose research focuses on circuits or populations of neurons.  Specific research areas of interest include, but are not limited to: reward/reinforcement, learning/memory, drug addiction, decision making, and neurocognitive development.  The department is housed in a state-of-the-art research and teaching facility that includes excellent space for animal research. Dartmouth College is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer, is strongly committed to diversity, and encourages applications from women and minorities.  Please submit a letter of application addressed to David J.
