  Department of Applied Mathematics

  Tenure Track Position in Theoretical Neuroscience

The Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Waterloo 
invites applications for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in the area of 
theoretical or computational neuroscience to begin 1 September 2007 , or 
later. These prestigious chairs are intended for exceptional emerging 
researchers who have the potential to lead in their field 
(http://www.chairs.gc.ca). The position is at the Assistant or Associate 
Professor level. Rank and salary will be commensurate with experience 
and research record. Candidates should show evidence of an outstanding 
research program, should have a strong mathematical background, and 
demonstrate an active interest in biophysics, systems neuroscience, or 
cognitive neuroscience. The successful candidate will play a central 
role in the development of the Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience at 
the University of Waterloo. The centre will also be supported by a 
second Canada Research Chair.

Applicants should send a curriculum vitae (including a statement of 
research interests and teaching philosophy) and the names and addresses 
of at least three referees to K.G. Lamb, Chair, Department of Applied 
Mathematics, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, CanadaN2L 
3G1(reference letters should not be sent at this stage). Screening of 
applications will begin on December 15, 2006 . The deadline for 
receiving applications is January 20, 2007 . Applications received after 
this date will be considered only if the position has not been filled.

The Department of Applied Mathematics, together with the Departments of 
Combinatorics & Optimization, Pure Mathematics, Statistics & Actuarial 
Science and the School of Computer Science , form the Faculty of 
Mathematics, which is a major centre for research in the mathematical 
sciences. Further information about the Department may be obtained from 
our webpage at www.math.uwaterloo.ca/AM_Dept/index.shtml.

The University of Waterloo encourages applications from all qualified 
individuals, including women, members of visible minorities, native 
peoples, and persons with disabilities. All qualified candidates are 
encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents 
will be given priority.

  Department of Psychology

  Tenure Track Position in Computational Neuroscience

The Department of Psychology at the University of Waterloo invites 
applications for a tenure-track assistant professor in computational 
neuroscience. The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in behavioural, 
cognitive, or computational neuroscience or related area in psychology. 
Candidates should show evidence of a strong research program that 
combines neuroscience with computational modeling. Applicants who 
combine expertise in computational modeling with expertise in one of the 
methods of neuroscience (e.g., EEG, ERP, TMS, fMRI) or cognitive 
neuropsychology are preferred. The successful candidate will play an 
active role in the development of the Centre for Theoretical 
Neuroscience at the University of Waterloo. We are seeking individuals 
who have strong research records and commitments to teaching, research, 
and the supervision of undergraduate and graduate students. Information 
regarding the department can be found at 
http://www.psychology.uwaterloo.ca. The anticipated start date for the 
position is July 1, 2007. The deadline for applications is December 1, 
2007. Review of applications will begin on Dec. 1, 2007, and continue 
until the position is filled. Applicants should submit a curriculum 
vitae, a statement of research and teaching interests, reprints or 
preprints of recent papers, and arrange for three confidential letters 
of reference to be sent to: Computational Neuroscience Search Committee, 
Department of Psychology, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, 
Canada N2L 3G1. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; 
however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. The 
University of Waterloo encourages applications from all qualified 
individuals, including women, members of visible minorities, native 
people, and persons with disabilities.
