POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT

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.

Applications: For best consideration send, by December 15, 2007, a CV, 
names and addresses (including emails) of three possible references, and 
statements of both research interests (documenting any previous 
extramural funding) and teaching interests to NACS Search,
Neuroscience and Cognitive Science Program, 2131 Biol/Psyc Building, 
University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742.

WOMEN AND MEMBERS OF UNDER REPRESENTED MINORITIES ARE ENCOURAGED TO
