The Psychology Department at Temple University is seeking to hire a faculty member in Cognitive Psychology or Cognitive Neuroscience to join the Brain and Cognitive Sciences area of the Department. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Psychology, Cognitive Science, or Cognitive Neuroscience. This tenure track appointment is at the Assistant Professor level. Although the specific area of research is open, the focus should be on human cognition rather than non-human animals, and preference will be given to applicants who complement the existing strengths of the area faculty. Preference will also be given to candidates whose research reflects the interdisciplinary nature of psychological science and forges linkages to the other areas of the Department (Clinical, Developmental, and Social) or to areas outside the Department (e.g., Educational Psychology in the College of Education, Decision Sciences in the Business School, or Speech and Communications Disorders in the College of Public Health). We will also consider whether candidates use techniques valued by the department (e.g., fMRI, eye-tracking, or computational modeling). The facilities available will include a state-of-the-art brain imaging center, featuring a new 3T MRI scanner, that is being constructed in the Psychology building. Candidates should have a dynamic and rigorous research program with strong potential for external funding, as well as a commitment to excellence in teaching and mentoring at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a statement of research plans, a statement of undergraduate and graduate teaching interests, three letters of recommendation, and copies of representative publications through Interfolio at
