The Institute of Cognitive Science (ICS) and the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience at the University of Colorado Boulder invite applications for a senior tenure-track faculty position in Cognitive Neuroscience. The position is at the Associate or Full Professor level and will be a joint appointment within the Institute and the Department.

The ideal candidate will have an outstanding track record of research in cognitive neuroscience using MR neuroimaging methods, which could range from spectroscopy to anatomical measures to resting-state data to task-based measures, as evidenced by a notable publication history and a strong record of funding as the Principal Investigator, relative to their current academic rank.

The ideal candidate will also have expertise in computational methods, such as machine learning or network science, supporting the analysis and characterization of complex data sets in Cognitive Neuroscience.

Applicants should demonstrate a strong capacity for, and a commitment to, interdisciplinary approaches and collaborative research across disciplines within Psychology, Neuroscience, Computer Science, and related fields in Cognitive Science.

The University of Colorado is home to world class researchers and facilities in Cognitive Neuroscience, with strengths in executive function, learning, memory, language, and social cognition. The Department of Psychology & Neuroscience includes programs in Behavioral Neuroscience; Behavioral, Psychiatric and Statistical Genetics, Clinical Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, and Social Psychology. ICS spans and connects researchers from nine departments - Psychology & Neuroscience; Computer Science; Education; Information Science; Integrative Physiology; Linguistics; Philosophy; Architecture and Planning; and Speech, Language and Hearing - and offers an interdisciplinary Ph.D. as well as certificate program in Cognitive Science.

ICS hosts the Intermountain Neuroimaging Consortium, the university's neuroimaging center. It consists of a Siemens Prisma scanner with multi-band capability, special shielding for high-quality data acquisition, dedicated operations and technical staff, and a myriad of interface devices for providing stimuli and recording responses. Importantly, it also involves a high-performance computational cluster and data archiving facility to support data collection, storage and analysis.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Psychology, Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, Computer Science, or a related field.

For full consideration, applications should be submitted by Sept. 15th, but will continue to be accepted until the position is filled. Applications should include:

  • current vita, three letters of recommendation
  • research statement describing current activities and future plans
  • publications demonstrating the characteristics described above
  • statement of teaching philosophy
  • cover letter specifically addressing the applicant's match to the criteria described above.

Applications are not considered complete until all letters of recommendation have been received.
