The University of Texas at Austin announces two faculty positions in 
Computational and Theoretical Neuroscience, as part of a multi-faculty 
hiring initiative. The search is open at all levels, from Assistant 
Tenure-track to Tenured Full Professor. Please see the advertisements 
below.

*Full|Associate|Assistant Professor in Computational and Theoretical 
Neuroscience, Departments of Neuroscience and Mathematics at the 
University of Texas at Austin *

The Department of Neuroscience at the University of Texas at Austin 
seeks exceptional researchers in the field of computational and 
theoretical neuroscience for appointment at the levels of Full Professor 
to Assistant Professor. The position will be joint with the Department 
of Mathematics, thus we especially encourage applications from leaders 
in computational and theoretical neuroscience whose work intersects with 
mathematical approaches including, but not limited to: dynamical 
systems, partial differential equations, algebraic geometry, statistics, 
information theory, stochastic processes, and applied and computational 
topology. This search is part of a multi-faculty hiring initiative in 
Computational and Theoretical Neuroscience at UT Austin -- including a 
position in Psychology and a joint position between Neuroscience and 
Computer Science, with the aim of building on existing strengths to 
create a Computational and Theoretical Neuroscience center.

The successful candidate(s) will orchestrate an outstanding program of 
independent research and contribute to an environment of diversity in 
higher education through research, teaching, and
service. The position will include full access to the Texas Advanced 
Computing Center supercomputers, and the option to join various 
multi-disciplinary advanced computing and neuroscience centers on 
campus. Austin is a vibrant university town with a large high-tech 
center, a legendary live-music culture, and has consistently ranked 
amongst the top five towns to live in the United States in various surveys.

Qualified applicants with a Ph.D. or equivalent, appropriate 
post-graduate experience, and an exceptional research record will be 
considered for appointment. Applications are being reviewed from 
September 2014 onwards, until the position is filled. Please submit 
applications through academicjobsonline 
(https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/4726). A complete application 
will include: 1. Statement of research interests. 2. Curriculum vita. 3. 
Letters of reference from at least 3 individuals (Assistant Professor) 
or 6 individuals (Associate or Full Professor). 4. A statement of 
teaching philosophy and experience, with evidence of teaching excellence 
(Assistant Professor). UT Austin is an equal opportunity employer 
committed to excellence through diversity. We strongly encourage 
applications from all qualified individuals including women and
