*FACULTY POSITION*

*Neuroscience**NYU Shanghai*

Shanghai New York University (NYU Shanghai) invites applications for
several assistant
(tenure-track), associate (tenured), and full professor (tenured) positions
from candidates with
research programs in systems, computational, and cognitive neuroscience.
The recruited faculty will also become members of a new neuroscience
research institute, with the primary goal of
understanding the mechanisms by which neural circuits in the brain generate
cognition and flexible behavior. Neuroscientists at NYU Shanghai will also
have the opportunity to interact and
collaborate with researchers in Economics, Mathematics, Data Science and
Engineering.

Candidates must have completed a Ph.D. or equivalent by the time of
application. The successful
candidates will be expected to develop an independent, extramurally-funded
research program, play a key role in the growth of the new Neuroscience
Institute, and to teach in NYU Shanghai.
Applications should be submitted by January 1, 2014 for appointments to
begin as early as July
2014.

NYU Shanghai is the first Sino-US higher education joint venture to grant a
degree that is
accredited in the US as well as in China. A research university with
liberal arts and sciences at
its core, NYU Shanghai resides in one of the world's great cities, which is
also a vibrant intellectual community (http://shanghai.nyu.edu/).

New York University has established itself as a Global Network University,
with three degree
granting campuses - New York, Shanghai, and Abu Dhabi - complemented by 12
additional academic centers across five continents. NYU Shanghai faculty
may spend time at NYU New York and other sites of NYU’s global network
engaging in both research and teaching. NYU Shanghai faculty will also have
the opportunity to be affiliated with the Center for Neural Science, the
Neuroscience Institute of the NYU School of Medicine, the Department of
Psychology, and/or with other suitable academic units at NYU New York.

The terms of employment in NYU Shanghai are comparable to U.S. institutions
in terms of research startup funds and compensation, and include housing
and educational subsidies for children.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a statement of research and
teaching interests,
electronic copies of up to three recent relevant publications, and the
names and addresses of three
or more individuals willing to provide letters of reference. Please visit
