UT Dallas Faculty Jobs

The School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences

Cognitive Neuroscientist in Brain Plasticity (pbd131219)

The School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences (BBS) at The University of Texas at Dallas seeks to fill a new tenure-track faculty position in Cognitive Neurosciences with a productive investigator whose research interests may be applied to address issues in human brain plasticity.

The applicant's research may be in the primary cognitive neuroscience areas of social cognition, cognitive control, memory, attention, language, emotional control, or neuropsychology. The applicant should demonstrate that the focus of this research interest is applicable to both the cognitive and brain state changes that occur with human brain plasticity. This interest can be in either adult or pediatric brain plasticity.

The university seeks outstanding scientists with substantive postdoctoral training in their research area and who are ready to continue or develop their own independent extramurally funded research program or senior productive scientists who wish to relocate their research program.

The successful applicant will enhance and contribute to the Center for BrainHealth's multidisciplinary core investigations using neuroinvestigative tools to address brain plasticity in pediatric and adult normal development as well as investigations in acquired brain injuries or psychiatric diseases such as traumatic brain injury, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Addictions, Autism, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

BBS faculty teach in the undergraduate (Neuroscience BS) and graduate (Cognition and Neuroscience PhD) programs that have attracted students with top academic ratings for more than a decade and complement other BBS programs' strengths in imaging, cognitive development and modeling, brain plasticity, and cognitive sciences.

Applicants at all ranks will be considered with appointment at the senior level requiring a demonstrated, sustained record of scholarly productivity and extramural support. The successful applicant will have new laboratory space fitted to his/her needs, along with a competitive start-up package and salary.

Review of applicants will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Starting date is negotiable. Indication of gender and ethnicity for affirmative action statistical purposes is requested as part of the application but is not required for consideration. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, citizenship status, Vietnam era or special disabled veteran's status, or sexual orientation.
