The successful candidate should be prepared to teach an intermediate-level neuroscience course, such as sensation and perception or animal behavior.  Candidates will also be expected to regularly teach research methods and statistics, and an upper-level seminar in an area of interest. A PhD is required, and teaching experience is preferred.

The psychology department’s research program supports approximately 24 research students each summer. 
 
The successful candidate will join the eight-member Psychology Department and will be expected to contribute to both the psychology and neuroscience majors.  The neuroscience major is an interdisciplinary program that is led by two psychologists and three biologists.
