Faculty Positions in Affective Science and Affective Neuroscience

As part of a multi-year initiative to enhance existing strengths and interests in affective science, the Department of Psychology (http://psychology.tamu.edu) at Texas A&M University invites applications for two Assistant-level tenure-track faculty positions with research interests in emotion regulation, broadly construed, to begin Fall 2015. These two positions are the first of several positions aimed at creating a world-class core of translational researchers focused on understanding the processes underlying emotion and its regulation. For the current positions, the specialty (e.g., Clinical, Cognitive, Developmental, I/O, Neuroscience, Social) is open. One position is for candidates with expertise in functional neuroimaging. The University has created a state of the art research facility consisting of both an fMRI and PET scanner to support recruitment for this hiring initiative. The second position is for candidates who include neuroscience or other psychophysiological techniques in human or animal models of affect (e.g., electroencephalography, functional genomics, functional neuroimaging, pharmaco- or optogenetic methods, transcranial stimulation) and/or to those candidates whose affective science research builds on departmental strengths in the study of individual differences. Applicants should be able to contribute to one or more existing graduate programs. For both positions, successful applicants should have an outstanding record of research achievement and potential for extramural funding. All candidates should have an interest in collaborative interdisciplinary research, and have a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate education. A Ph.D. in psychology or closely-related field is required. Applicants should send electronic copies of a letter of intent, curriculum vitae, statement on research and teaching, sample research publications, and three letters of recommendation to Brandon Schmeichel (schmeichel@tamu.edu). The search committee will begin reviewing applications September 15, 2014 and will continue to review new applications until the positions are filled.
