Assistant Professor of Neuroscience
Tenure-Track Position
Department of Neuroscience
Assistant Professor of Neuroscience 


The Department of Neuroscience at KENYON COLLEGE invites applications for a tenure-track position starting July of 2022. Candidates should have a PhD in Neuroscience or a related field, a strong commitment to teaching excellence, and ongoing scholarly engagement. The teaching requirement is five courses per year. Courses will include regular contributions to the department’s core courses (Introductory Neuroscience, Research Methods in Neuroscience), Sensory Systems,  and additional intermediate and advanced courses.  We welcome and encourage the development of new courses that reflect the candidate’s interest and expertise. We are open to the research area, but are particularly interested in neuroscientists who use rodent, or similar research models, to investigate interactions with the brain and environment (e.g., sensory or hormonal systems). The Neuroscience Department is interdisciplinary with several members appointed in other departments (Biology, Chemistry, Psychology, Philosophy, and Anthropology). The Department and the College support and encourage interdisciplinary work; therefore, an ideal candidate’s work could attract students from outside the discipline, including those in the affiliated departments as well as those in the arts and humanities. A complete application will be composed of 1) a cover letter; 2) a Curriculum Vitae; 3) a ~2-page statement of the applicant's teaching philosophy that addresses experiences with and plans for teaching diverse student populations with inclusive pedagogy; 4) a ~2-page statement of the applicant’s research and scholarship with plans to include undergraduate researchers; and 5) contact information for three professional references. Unofficial graduate transcripts will be requested of candidates who advance to the interview stage. Candidates are invited to include a statement in their cover letter regarding how the Covid-19 pandemic has affected their career trajectory. All application materials must be submitted electronically through Kenyon's employment website: http://careers.kenyon.edu. Review of applications will begin on October 1, 2021 and continue until the position is filled.
