The Department of Psychology at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) invites applications for an assistant professor, tenure-track position in Addiction Neuroscience, supporting Psychology and Neuroscience graduate and undergraduate programs, to begin no later than August 1, 2014. The program seeks an individual who will expand and complement the Addiction Neuroscience program's basic and translational research efforts in alcohol and drug abuse, addictions, and neuroplasticity. We seek applicants who fit well with the program's current emphasis on neurobiological, genetic, developmental, and therapeutic aspects of substance abuse, and who bring expertise suited for collaborative initiatives serving the life sciences mission of the IUPUI campus. We particularly encourage applications from candidates who integrate cellular, molecular, genetic, electrophysiological, neuropharmacological, or neuroimaging methods to study cognitive or regulatory neuroscience, neural plasticity related to learning, memory, or development, neurochemistry and neuropharmacology related to behavioral processes, genetic regulation of neural circuits, or behavioral endocrinology. The successful candidate will be expected to maintain an active, externally-funded research program and to contribute to graduate and undergraduate education. All applicants should provide evidence of a strong, independent program of research that is competitive for external funding, and a commitment to graduate training and undergraduate education in behavioral neuroscience. Applicants should send in electronic form a cover letter, a vita, a detailed description of their research program, a statement of teaching (interests, experience, and philosophy) and three representative pdfs of reprints or preprints to Dr. Nicholas Grahame, Search Committee Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants should arrange to have three letters of reference submitted separately by the writers to the same email address above. Review of the applications will begin after December 1, 2013 and continue until the position is filled. The Department of Psychology offers a Ph.D. in Addiction Neuroscience and Clinical Psychology, an M.S. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology, B.A. and B.S. in Psychology, and an interdisciplinary B.S. in Neuroscience (see www.psych.iupui.edu and www.neuroscience.iupui.edu). The successful applicant will have laboratory space in a brand new, state-of-the-art building opening in November, 2013. IUPUI is Indiana's premier urban public research institution, with 22 schools enrolling over 30,000 students. The second largest campus in the Indiana University system, IUPUI is considered a research-intensive institution, and is the main campus for state-wide programs in the health and life sciences including the IU School of Medicine (http://medicine.iu.edu/). IUPUI is an EEO/AA employer with a strong commitment to increasing faculty diversity - we seek to attract a diverse applicant pool for this position, including women and members of minority groups.
