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 2015. 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 
using innovative experimental techniques in animal models to understand 
mechanisms and causal relationships between neural circuit activity and 
ethologically relevant behavior. We seek cutting-edge integration 
between new and emerging capabilities for large scale recording and/or 
manipulation of circuits combined with sophisticated analysis of 
large-scale data. Examples of behaviors of interest include those 
related to learning and memory, perception, decision making, reward, 
timing, pain, adaptation to stress, and developmental processes.  
Experimental techniques include various methods for recording and 
manipulating neural circuits at single-cell resolution, including 
multi-electrode recordings, imaging of circuit activity, and 
optogenetics. Candidates using circuit-based approaches to study 
preclinical models of schizophrenia, autism, and other difficult to 
treat psychiatric diseases are encouraged to apply.  The successful 
candidate is expected to assemble a vibrant, externally-funded research 
program and to achieve excellence in both undergraduate and graduate 
education.  Indiana University is in the midst of a multi-year 
initiative to build excellence in network science, and it is anticipated 
that the candidate's research will both benefit from, and contribute to 
the initiative's computational neuroscience components.

To apply, please include a curriculum vita, copies of representative 
publications, statements of research and teaching interests, and three 
(3) letters of recommendation.

Interested candidates should review the application requirements and 
submit their application at: https://indiana.peopleadmin.com.  Questions 
regarding the position or application process can be directed to:  
William P. Hetrick, Ph.D., Professor and Chair, Department of Psychology 
and Brain Sciences, 1101 E. 10th St., Indiana University, Bloomington, 
IN 47405 or via email at whetrick at indiana.edu <mailto:whetrick at indiana.edu>.

Review of all applications will begin on November 1, 2014 and will 
continue until the position is filled. Indiana University is an equal
