The Neuroscience Program at Colgate University invites applications for a tenure-track position in neuroscience—with an emphasis on genetic approaches to the nervous system and behavior—at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning in the fall semester of 2016. The area of research is open. Completion of Ph.D. is expected prior to or shortly after the date of hire. Colgate is a highly selective liberal arts college where excellence in teaching and research are expected and supported. The appointee will join a psychology and neuroscience faculty deeply committed to a strong, research-oriented program and to a curriculum that integrates psychology and neuroscience perspectives. The teaching load is equivalent to five courses per year.

The successful candidate also will be expected to participate in all-university programs, including the Liberal Arts Core Curriculum. Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2015. A cover letter, curriculum vitae, statements of teaching and research interests, and three letters of recommendation must be submitted through https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/6053. Colgate strives to be a community supportive of diverse perspectives and identities. Candidates should describe in their cover letter their approach to teaching and/or scholarship in a diverse and inclusive educational environment.
