Job Announcement: Joint Psychology/Neuroscience Institute Position (tenure track)

Carnegie Mellon University seeks highly qualified applicants for a tenure-track position shared by the Carnegie Mellon Neuroscience Institute and the Department of Psychology. Appointments will be considered at ranks from assistant to associate professor (including tenured associate).

Our programs place high value on programmatic, theory-driven research that advances understanding of how intelligence is realized by the complex biology and processing of the human brain. We are particularly interested in applicants whose theoretical approaches and methodologies can link to Carnegie Mellon University’s core strengths in biological sciences, cognitive science, computation, data science and engineering, and whose research can capitalize on Carnegie Mellon's state-of-the-art MRI capabilities to understand healthy brains and mental or neurological disorders.
