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, 2017.  Exceptional senior candidates may also be considered.  Applications are invited from individuals who have exhibited excellence in research and are able to provide high-quality teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.  Preferred candidates will be those 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 in relation to behavior.  Specific research areas of interest include, but are not limited to: reward/reinforcement, learning/memory, decision-making, and cognitive/executive function.  The department is housed in an integrated research and teaching environment that provides facilities for cognitive, social, and neurobiological research.  Members of the department interact closely with faculty in biological sciences, c
