Our goal is to hire an outstanding junior faculty member for a tenure-track assistant professor position in the Cognitive & Affective Neuroscience Research Interest Group (RIG). The successful candidate will have the opportunity to capitalize on the resources, patient populations, and cross-disciplinary opportunities associated with Rice's proximity to The Texas Medical Center.

The position requires a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline (e.g., psychology, human development, cognitive science). Faculty are expected to develop a productive research program, secure external funding, teach courses that contribute to undergraduate and graduate psychology programs as well as the Cognitive Science and/or Neuroscience interdisciplinary undergraduate majors, mentor graduate and undergraduate students, and provide service to the field, the department, and the University.
