Bucknell University, Department of Psychology invites applications for an open-rank search (tenure-track) in Physiological Psychology/Behavioral Neuroscience. The position begins August, 2012. As a highly selective, primarily undergraduate institution with a strong liberal arts tradition we endorse the teacher-scholar model of passionate, creative teaching along with high quality research activity. The position involves teaching five courses per year from among: Introductory Psychology and/or Introduction to Neuroscience (individual or team-taught options), and lower and upper level courses in behavioral neuroscience, including a laboratory methods course. These courses primarily serve students in the Psychology, Neuroscience, and Animal Behavior majors. Opportunity exists to teach Learning if appropriate. Potential for contribution to our College Core Curriculum is highly valued; opportunities and institutional support exist for developing first-year foundation seminars, team-taught Integrated Perspectives courses, and writing-intensive courses in the discipline. The successful candidate will be expected to mentor undergraduates in an active research program studying neural bases of psychological/behavioral processes in animal models. Opportunity also exists to supervise Master’s degree students. For an entry-level hire, a completed Ph.D. in Behavioral Neuroscience or a closely related area is required, and postdoctoral research experience is desirable. Appointment at a senior rank will be considered for outstanding candidates with demonstrated success in undergraduate mentorship and a record of leadership consistent with the teacher-scholar model.
