Title: Computational Neuroscience – Tenure-track faculty.

The Neuroscience and Cognitive Science program (NACS) at the University 
of Maryland is seeking a new tenure-track faculty member, at the 
assistant professor level. Computational neuroscientists working in any 
areas including sensory and motor physiology, analysis of control 
systems, and cognitive neuroscience will be considered. The successful 
candidate will hold a joint appointment in both the NACS Program and an 
academic department. The department of tenure will depend on the 
research interests of the faculty member and may be in Biology, Computer 
Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Hearing and Speech 
Sciences, Kinesiology, Linguistics, or Psychology. NACS is a tightly 
integrated community of scholars focused on aspects of neuroscience and 
cognitive science. Many faculty also enjoy highly productive research 
collaborations with scientists at federal agencies in the Washington DC 
area such as the NIH.

Responsibilities: Candidates will be expected to develop a vigorous 
extramurally-funded research program. Teaching duties will include a 
graduate-level course in computational neuroscience, as well as 
undergraduate/graduate courses to be determined by the tenure-track 
department. Duties will also include student advising and administration 
as determined by the Director of NACS and the department of tenure.

Qualifications: An earned doctorate in a discipline relevant to the 
candidate’s field of teaching and research is required. Candidates who 
integrate theoretical with experimental research are preferred. We seek 
candidates with demonstrated teaching and research excellence capable of 
maintaining an extramurally-funded research program. NACS details at 
www.nacs.umd.edu.

Salary: Commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Position available: Earliest start date is fall semester 2008.
