The Presidential Cluster on the Neural Code at Dartmouth College is delighted to invite applications for the Gregg L. Engles 1979 Professorship at Dartmouth College. Qualified candidates will be considered at all ranks – Professor, Associate Professor, or Assistant Professor. The appointment will reside in one or more of Dartmouth’s programs, including the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Computer Science, Cognitive Science, Geisel School of Medicine, or Thayer School of Engineering. The Neural Code Cluster is one of 10 new faculty clusters in priority areas for innovative science and scholarship across Dartmouth. It includes three endowed chairs supported by programmatic funds for ongoing multidisciplinary research and other scholarly activities. Applicants should have an outstanding record of research at the intersection of computation and neuroscience, broadly defined. Priority areas include human neuroscience (e.g., fMRI, EEG, MEG, NIRS), theoretical neuroscience and modeling (e.g., dynamic systems), machine learning and deep learning, neuromodulation (e.g., TMS, tDCS, tACS, deep brain stimulation, neurofeedback, closed-loop systems), translational applications incorporating population neuroscience approaches, systems neuroscience using genetic constructs including optogenetics, chemogenetics and activation-based tagging, and other emerging fields. Faculty in the Neural Code Cluster are part of a broader network of colleagues at Dartmouth spanning basic neuroscience research at multiple levels of analysis, computational and statistical innovations, and medical and translational applications. Dartmouth is highly committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive population of students, faculty, and staff. We are especially interested in applicants who are able to work effectively with students, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds, including but not limited to: racial and ethnic minorities, women, individuals who identify with LGBTQ+ communities, individuals with disabilities, individuals from lower income backgrounds, and/or first-generation college graduates.

We are particularly interested in applicants with a demonstrated ability to contribute to Dartmouth initiatives that support diversity in STEM fields, such as the Women in Science Program, E. E. Just STEM Scholars Program, and Academic Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (ASURE).
