Georgia State University in Atlanta has multiple faculty positions open in human neuroimaging. Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2013, but application materials will be accepted until the positions are filled.

As part of its Second Century Initiative (http://www.gsu.edu/secondcentury/) and pending budgetary approval,  Georgia State University, Atlanta, GA anticipates hiring up to 3 tenure-track faculty members (open rank, applicants at Associate or Full Professor-levels preferred) with research programs in human behavior and expertise in neuroimaging, to begin Fall 2014. We seek established scientists who will join our growing cadre of researchers who are capitalizing on our state-of-the-art facilities at the GSU/GT Joint Center for Advanced Brain Imaging (CABI; http://www.cabiatl.com/CABI/), and help advance current GSU research initiatives that include Brains and Behavior (http://neuroscience.gsu.edu/3650.html) and Language and Literacy (http://www.researchlanglit.gsu.edu), and may build upon our current strengths in atypical development and learning (http://www2.gsu.edu/~wwwaty), clinical neuropsychology, and/or cognitive science (http://www2.gsu.edu/~wwwpsy/graduate_programs.html).  A number of GSU units will support these individuals to drive a broad vision for interdisciplinary research. Ongoing activities at the CABI include functional and structural neuroimaging within the areas of working memory, cognitive control, reading and language, and emotion processing as well as with a wide range of clinical and developmental populations, including survivors of cancer, congenital heart disease, as well as children and adults with autism and other neurological, genetic, and psychiatric conditions.

The candidate will be appointed in a relevant department (e.g., Psychology and/or Neuroscience, Physics) at Georgia State University.  A Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D. or similar degree in psychology, neuroscience or a related research discipline is required.  The successful candidate will have an outstanding record of research achievement, including a strong record of external research funding. The successful candidate will be expected to maintain a productive, funded research program in human neuroimaging, and will be expected to demonstrate graduate and undergraduate instructional effectiveness with a diverse student body.  Interested individuals should send a curriculum vita, a cover letter stating research interests and experience, evidence of instructional effectiveness, and three letters of recommendation. Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2013, but application materials will be accepted until the positions are filled.
