Dear colleagues,

The Vienna Cognitive Science Hub is looking for a Tenure-Track
Professorship in Cognitive Neuroscience of brain-microbiome interaction.

The application deadline is 23.09.2020.

The candidate for the tenure track position should have a strong focus on
the translational and integrative potential of human cognitive
neuroscience, at the interface of (social) brain, cognition, their
disorders, and the microbiome. Research should be building upon a strong
conceptual framework and interdisciplinarity. The methodological approach
should focus on the interplay between neuro-cognitive processes and neural
codes, and their relation to biological regulation systems driven by the
microbiome, in humans.

Thematically, the focus should be on basic mechanistic research in the
domains of (social) emotion and cognition, as well as their disorders,
preferentially but not necessarily on topics such as social interaction,
affiliation, or learning and memory.

While basic in nature, the research should hold potential to advance the
translational understanding of mental and cognitive disorders, such as
depression and autism, or of aging-related diseases, such as Alzheimer’s
disease, or Frontotemporal Dementia, respectively.
The position provides excellent opportunities to strengthen
cross-institutional collaborative initiatives within the domain of
neuroscience and microbiome research.
