***Faculty Position in Computational/Theoretical Neuroscience and 
Mathematics*

The Departments of Neuroscience and Mathematics at the University of 
Texas at Austin are currently inviting applications for a full-time 
tenure-track appointment at the Assistant Professor level. We seek a 
creative and original thinker in mathematical neuroscience. Areas of 
interest include but are not limited to dynamical models of networks and 
circuits; statistical methods in neuroscience; computational algebraic 
topology applied to neural systems; neural network theory; stochastic 
analysis of neural dynamics; probabilistic combinatorics; coding and 
information theory of neural systems; data analytics and machine 
learning approaches. This search is part of a cluster of planned faculty 
hires in Computational and Theoretical Neuroscience at the University of 
Texas at Austin.

The successful candidate will lead a vigorous program of extramurally 
funded independent research and contribute to an environment of 
diversity in higher education through research, teaching, and service. 
She or he will have joint membership in both departments and the option 
to join various multi-disciplinary research centers on campus.

*Applicant Instructions: *Interested applicants with a Ph.D. or 
equivalent, two or more years of post-graduate experience, and a record 
of research excellence in mathematical neuroscienceshould submit 1) a 
letter of interest, 2) a current curriculum vita, 3) three key scholarly 
publications, 4) a statement of research interests and vision, and 5) a 
teaching statement with evidence of excellence in teaching to 
<https://www.mathjobs.org/jobs/jobs/7538>https://www.mathjobs.org/jobs/jobs/7538. 
In addition, applicants must arrange to have at least three letters of 
reference submitted directly to the same website. Applications will be 
reviewed starting November 5, 2015, and will continue to be reviewed
