The Department of Neurological Sciences at the University of Nebraska
Medical Center invites applications for a tenure leading faculty position
in Clinical Cognitive Neuroscience. This position is part of a new
Neuroimaging Section within the department and aims to leverage multiple
hires across the School of Medicine in human neuroscience. We welcome
applications from any area of cognitive neuroscience, including memory,
executive function, visual attention, perception, audition, motor control,
emotion, and decision-making. Methodological specialty within neuroimaging
is open, but ideally the candidate would benefit from our strong existing
program in MEG imaging, and develop a translational, theory-based
multimodal neuroimaging program focusing on their area of interest. The
successful applicant would join a growing group of cognitive
neuroscientists within the department (and across campus) using MEG, fMRI,
and other modalities, and hopefully help grow other programs in parallel
with building their own.

Successful candidates will have a MD, PhD, or MD/PhD in neuroscience,
psychology, or computer science, with postdoctoral training and an
excellent publication record for their career stage. Candidates should also
have an excellent and sustained record of research and evidence of the
potential, or demonstrated ability, to generate extramural funding
commensurate with their career stage. Applicants should have the ability
and interest to teach graduate courses in cognitive neuroscience, and to
mentor PhD students in our growing Neuroscience PhD program.

The University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) is a vibrant
multidisciplinary research environment with major resources and ample
opportunities for training and collaboration. Resources include a
306-sensor MEG system, multiple 3T human MRI scanners, high-definition
transcranial direct-current and alternating-current stimulation
(HD-tDCS/tACS) equipment, eye-tracking equipment, and a state-of-the-art
transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) suite. The UNMC is located in
Omaha, with a metro area population of approximately one million, and major
attractions and events such as the College World Series.

Please submit a letter detailing current research and teaching interests, a
curriculum vitae, a list of the applicant’s five most important
publications, and contact information for three individuals who will
provide letters of recommendation at a later time. Applications should be
submitted online at: https://unmc.peopleadmin.com/postings/36674 . Review
of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position
is filled. Start dates are negotiable, but ideally before the close of
2018. Individuals from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
