Title: Miller Family Chair in Cognitive Neuroscience
Department of Psychological Sciences, University of Missouri, Columbia
Location: Columbia, Missouri, US

The DEPARTMENT OF PSYCHOLOGICAL SCIENCES at the UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI-COLUMBIA seeks applications for the MILLER FAMILY CHAIR IN COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE. We expect this endowed position to be filled by a tenured faculty member to provide intellectual leadership for a research-dedicated brain imaging center that has been in operation for about a year. The substantive area is open and includes such topics as understanding the neural basis of cognition, development, aging, social behavior, psychopathology, and addiction. The department has an excellent faculty, including several neuroimaging researchers (see the departmental web site,, who value collaborative, cross-disciplinary work. We have recently hired an MR physicist and have plans for several more neuroimaging hires. Priority for the Miller Chair will be given to individuals whose research programs are both well-established and synergistic with those of current faculty. The brain imaging center houses a research-dedicated, 3T Siemens MRI scanner well-equipped for research, supplementing other Siemens scanners in the medical school, and a mock scanner equipped with head movement apparatus. Send a vita, a brief introductory letter, and two reprints to the search committee chair, Nelson Cowan, preferably electronically (Email); or call with inquiries (573-882-4232) or send mail to Search Committee Chair, Department of Psychological Sciences, University of Missouri, McAlester Hall, University of Missouri, Columbia MO 65211, USA. We will begin screening applications immediately and will continue until the position has been filled.
