Assistant/Associate Professor, Nonhuman Primate Behavioral Neuroscience

Position at: Emory University/Yerkes National Primate Research Center
Emory University, Department of Psychology and the Yerkes National Primate Research Center, Division of Developmental and Cognitive Neuroscience invite applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant/Associate Professor level in the area of nonhuman primate behavioral neuroscience. The ideal candidate would be someone whose work is rooted in behavior/cognition and integrated with biology/physiology. Representative examples include behavioral neuroscientists who focus on developmental behavioral genetics and work with large populations of nonhuman primates; primate behavioral neuroendocrinologists; primate neuroscientists studying higher cognitive functions (memory, emotion, social cognition, etc.) using cutting-edge technologies, such as MRI and PET, electrophysiology, pharmacogenetics, transcranial magnetic stimulation, or deep brain stimulation to inform our understanding of primate brain neural circuitry. This new hire should have synergistic interests with faculty from Psychology, Anthropology, Biology and/or Yerkes in areas such as behavioral genetics, neuroendocrinology, social behavior, social determinants of health, stress, memory, decision-making, other cognitive processes or developmental aspects of these processes. The research site has much to offer, including Yerkes’ excellent facilities for nonhuman primate MRI and PET, core facilities for neuroendocrine assays, and access to large populations of socially housed monkeys at the Yerkes Field Station. The department seeks a candidate with strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching. Ph.D. required. Candidates should submit applications via Interfolio at https://apply.interfolio.com/52851. Please include a CV, a research statement, a teaching statement, two or three representative publications, and three letters of recommendation. Please also include a brief diversity statement in your cover letter that addresses past activities and future plans to advance equity, inclusion, and diversity in your professional career. The deadline for applications is October 1, 2018, and applications received after this date will not be considered. Emory University (Atlanta, GA) is an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer. Women, minorities, people with disabilities and veterans are strongly encouraged to apply.

Deadline: 2018-10-01

Behavioral/Affective Neuroscience

Position at: Texas A&M University
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in Dr. Stephen Maren’s Emotion and Memory Systems laboratory in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Texas A&M University. The position is associated with an NIH-funded project exploring the neurobiological mechanisms of stress-induced impairments in forms of learning (e.g.,extinction) that are central to behavioral therapies for pathological fear. Studies will aim to identify the neurobiological mechanisms and circuits by which stress dysregulates the prefrontal cortex and impairs extinction and other forms of emotion regulation. Our approach utilizes state-of-the-science methods to selectively tag, manipulate, and functionally characterize identified neural circuits involved in emotional learning and memory in behaving animals. In addition to training in these and other methods, trainees will receive comprehensive professional development training in scientific publication and communication, grant writing, and laboratory management. Ultimately, the primary goal of the fellowship is to facilitate transition of the fellow to an independent scientific career. Located in the Interdisciplinary Life Sciences Building and centered in the Texas A&M Institute for Neuroscience (TAMIN; http://tamin.tamu.edu), Dr. Maren’s laboratory is highly collaborative and offers many opportunities for interdisciplinary research training. Eligible applicants will have a PhD in neuroscience, psychology, or related discipline. Salary will be commensurate with research experience and based on the NIH guidelines for postdoctoral trainees and fellows. Texas A&M University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer committed to minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, and veterans; we welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds and training histories who will bring novel perspectives to the laboratory and research. Interested applicants should send a CV, statement of research interests, and the names of three references to Dr. Maren at: maren@tamu.edu.

Deadline: 2019-04-02
