Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Indiana University – 
Bloomington seeks to fill a faculty position at the level of Assistant 
Professor (tenure-track) to begin August 2014. Applicants for this 
position must have a doctorate, a strong record of publication, and the 
potential for research funding. The applicant's research should focus on 
theoretical and computational approaches to understand neurobiological 
processes at any one or several levels of organization, ranging from 
individual neurons to circuits to systems interactions. Problem areas 
include models of complex brain networks, neural coding, learning and 
plasticity, development, dynamic brain activity, or relations between 
brain and behavior. Candidates with an integrated research program 
combining computational modeling and empirical neuroscience research are 
strongly encouraged to apply. The department is highly integrative, and 
we would be especially interested in researchers whose interests 
complement existing strengths in cognitive neuroscience, social 
neuroscience, cellular and systems neuroscience, cognitive science, 
network science, developmental psychology, and clinical psychology. 
Teaching responsibilities will include courses at the graduate and 
undergraduate levels. Interested candidates should review the 
application requirements and submit their applications at:
