*** this position has been closed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

The University of Oregon’s Department of Psychology invites applications for a tenure-track position in developmental cognitive neuroscience, broadly defined (e.g., both typical and atypical development, as well as social and affective aspects). The appointment will be at the Assistant Professor level and will begin Fall 2018. The competitive candidate (Ph.D. required at the time of appointment) will have an active research program with expertise using one or more neuroscience methods and will be capable of outstanding research and teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels.

Within the area of developmental psychology, there are six faculty and two active emeriti who investigate mechanisms underlying optimal growth and developmental change. Current research examines a diverse set of developmental phenomena across a broad age range, utilizing a wide variety of methodological techniques spanning neuroimaging, biological assay, pupillometry, survey, self-report, and behavioral indices. Our areas of particular strength include a focus on social-cognitive development in infancy, the preschool period, and adolescence, as well as executive function, language, and emotional and communicative development in early childhood.

We are especially interested in candidates who will complement existing strengths within the Department of Psychology and will contribute to the collaborative, interdisciplinary, and growing community of researchers with interests in developmental cognitive neuroscience. We encourage applications from scholars who are historically from underrepresented populations, and/or who have experience working with students from diverse backgrounds.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, three representative publications, and three statements: (1) research accomplishments and future plans, (2) teaching experience and approach, and (3) personal contributions to foster an environment of equity and inclusion for faculty, staff, and students from diverse backgrounds.

Our Department embraces the values of open and reproducible science, and candidates are encouraged to address (in their statements and/or cover letter) how they have pursued and/or plan to pursue these goals in their work.

Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2017(revised). The position will remain open until filled.

The University of Oregon is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Institution committed to cultural diversity and compliance with the ADA.
