Faculty positions: Dept. of Psychology - Univ. of S. Carolina

The Department of Psychology invites applications for two tenure-track Assistant Professors with research interests in cognitive neuroscience. The appointment begins August 16, 2011.

Candidates must have demonstrated the ability to conduct research in neuroscience that augments and complements our existing technical expertise in brain stimulation, event related potentials, and magnetic resonance imaging using our 3T Siemens Trio (see for more information), and behavioral expertise in an area of cognitive neuroscience, including but not limited to language, attention, and perception. A Ph.D. or MD in a relevant discipline is required, as successful applicants are expected to lead their own research program and teach. Applicants must demonstrate potential to acquire external grant funding. Teaching and postdoctoral experience is strongly preferred. Salary is commensurate with experience.

Applicants should submit a letter describing their interests and credentials, curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, accomplishments, three letters of recommendation and copies of selected publications.

Electronic application submissions are preferred and should be emailed to with Cognitive Neuroscience Search in the subject line. Paper submissions may be sent to:
