Call for Expression of Interest for two Assistant Professor positions. 
More senior candidates will also be considered.

*Cognitive Neuroimaging Principal Investigator, University of Trento, 
Neuroimaging Labs (LNiF), Center for Mind-Brain Sciences (CIMeC), 
Trento, Italy*

The Center for Mind-Brain Sciences (CIMeC) at the University of Trento, 
Italy, invites expressions of interest from highly motivated scholars in 
view of the opening of two principal investigator positions at the level 
of assistant professor (3 years + potential 2 year extension). 
Candidates who have already a tenured position elsewhere would be 
considered directly for a tenure-track assistant professor/tenured 
associate professor.

/Research Profile/

The ideal candidate should have an established track record of _research 
in any area of cognitive neuroimaging studies, preferably fMRI_. The 
successful candidates will work in the Neuroimaging Labs (LNiF: 
http://www.cimec.unitn.it/en/69/neuroimaging-labs-lnif) at the Center 
for Mind-Brain Sciences (CIMeC: http://web.unitn.it/en/cimec). They are 
expected to develop their own research program but also to interact 
actively with other CIMeC faculty using different methodologies to 
address various aspects of cognitive functioning. Knowledge of Italian 
is appreciated but not required.


The successful candidates are expected to contribute to the Center’s 
teaching mission at the PhD and MSc level. Instruction is in English. 
Successful candidates will negotiate the possibility of supervising PhD 
students who are fully funded by the University. The teaching duties at 
the MSc level vary depending on academic rank. Assistant professors are 
expected to teach 60 hrs/year, tenure-track assistant professors 90 
hrs/year, tenured associate professors 120 hrs/year.

UniTN and CIMeC

The University of Trento consistently ranks as a top Italian university 
in both national Research Assessment Evaluations (RAE) and University 
Surveys.In the latest RAE the University of Trento as a whole ranks 1st 
among medium-sized universities.

The CIMeC's goal is to foster cutting-edge research on cognition and its 
neural basis, and to support the dissemination of these findings 
internationally and within the local community. As an interdisciplinary 
research and teaching center, it draws on faculty from several 
departments, including Psychology and Cognitive Science, Linguistics and 
Philosophy, Physics, Mathematics, and Information Engineering and 
Computer Science. Current faculty members come from Italy, Germany, The 
Netherlands, Belgium, USA, Canada, Argentina, Israel, and the United 

Although a relatively small group, CIMeC faculty have won many 
competitive national and international grants, including 1 European 
Research Council (ERC) advanced grant, 1 ERC consolidator grant, 6 ERC 
starting grants, other European Framework grants, and highly competitive 
grants awarded by the local government. The Center has consistently been 
ranked the leading cognitive neuroscience research unit in Italy. It is 
part of the Erasmus Mundus European Master Program in Language and 
Communication Technologies.

Expressions of interest in English should include a brief motivation 
letter and a Curriculum Vitae and should be addressed to Dr. Alfonso 
Caramazza (alfonso.caramazza at unitn.it)
