November 09, 2020

The Department of Psychology at Tufts University is seeking applicants at the tenure-track assistant professor level for a clinical neuroscience position to begin September 1, 2021. Candidates should study the neural basis of atypical cognition, emotion, and/or behavior, and seek to better understand, predict, or treat psychopathology. The successful applicant will have a Ph.D. (by start date) and an active research program that can lead to extramural funding. Area of research specialization is open, but of particular interest are candidates with research interests that bridge to those of other members of the department; for example, those who adopt a theoretically motivated empirical approach to discovering mechanistic explanations for the development, maintenance, and/or treatment of psychopathology, including issues related to or exacerbated by the experience of systemic racism; and who make use of methodologies and models to explore neural activity and its relationship to disease conditions and their associated action, cognitive, and behavioral states. Applicants should be interested in teaching courses aligned with one or more of our undergraduate majors in Clinical Psychology, Biopsychology, and Cognitive & Brain Sciences, and to our Ph.D. graduate programs in Psychology and Cognitive Science. We would also be enthusiastic about candidates willing and eager to teach courses that contribute to the statistical training of our students. Teaching load would be four courses per year, with opportunities for reductions related to service, training, and advising workload. Applicants should submit to <> the following: a C.V.; a statement of research accomplishments and future plans (note that our department embraces open and reproducible science, and candidates are encouraged to address how they pursue these goals in their work); copies of no more than three representative scholarly papers; a statement of teaching experience and approach; three letters of recommendation; and a diversity statement that describes the candidate’s aspirations and potential for promoting diversity and inclusion in their professional career. Please contact Jessica Storozuk, Department Administrator, at<> with any questions. Review of applications will begin December 1, 2020, and will continue until the position is filled.
