Open-rank position, Science of Learning, Johns Hopkins University
The Department of Cognitive Science and the School of Education at Johns
Hopkins University seek a faculty candidate at any level with a research
program within the sciences of learning. This joint appointment is a
tenure-track position with responsibilities in both units; tenure will be
determined within the Cognitive Science Department.
Research areas of particular interest include
plasticity/learning/acquisition/development in the domains of language,
vision or spatial representation. The ideal candidate should conduct
interdisciplinary research that makes substantive contact with theory and
uses experimental, developmental, linguistic, neuroscience and/or
computational approaches, and has implications for application to
learning settings, broadly construed.
Candidates should be prepared to carry out teaching and student
supervision at the graduate and undergraduate level in a
formally-oriented, highly interdisciplinary Cognitive Science department.
Responsibilities in the School of Education will include teaching and
research supervision at the doctoral level. The successful candidate
will be interested in collaborations with other faculty in the School of
Education and their connections to diverse student populations in area
public and private schools. This position is part of a new
university-wide initiative in the Science of Learning
(http://scienceoflearning.jhu.edu/; further faculty growth in this area
The Cognitive Science Department and the School of Education have a
strong commitment to achieving diversity among faculty, students and
staff. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from
members of underrepresented groups and strongly encourage women and
persons of color to apply for this position. Applications are due by
November 1, 2013.
Johns Hopkins University actively encourages interest from minorities and
women. Please send cover letter, CV, research statement, a separate statement of
implications of research for learning settings, and three letters of
recommendation. Please send electronic submissions only.

Two Tenure-Track Junior Faculty Openings at Rutgers-Newark in Systems Neuroscience:
Sensory-Motor Integration, Learning and Memory, & Emotional Regulation
The Center for Molecular & Behavioral Neuroscience at Rutgers University-Newark has two openings for tenure-track Assistant Professors in SYSTEMS NEUROSCIENCE. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. degree in Neuroscience or a
related field and have completed at least two years of post-doctoral training.
Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, is a leading national public research university and the state's preeminent, comprehensive public institution of higher education. Rutgers is dedicated to conducting
research that breaks new ground; to teaching that meets the highest standards of excellence; and to providing services, solutions, and clinical care that help individuals and the local, national, and global communities where they live.
The Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience (CMBN) is located in Newark NJ, a short drive from New York City. CMBN is part of a large community of neuroscientists at Rutgers Newark, with additional researchers in the Departments of Biological Sciences and Psychology as well as in the Rutgers University New Jersey Medical School. Collectively, these researchers represent all levels of analysis in neuroscience (for more details, see http://www.neuroscience.newark.rutgers.edu )
The ideal candidates for these two assistant professor positions ask fundamental hypothesis-driven questions about brain structure and function and are open to establishing collaborative research efforts within the Rutgers neuroscience community. Research areas of particular interest are sensory-motor integration, learning and memory, and emotional regulation. We are especially interested in candidates who use a range of experimental methods, including in vitro and in vivo electrophysiology in rodents or non-human primates, optogenetics, tract tracing and immunohistochemistry. The successful applicants will be expected to maintain an active externally-funded research program, to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in neuroscience, and to mentor Ph.D. students in our Behavioral and Neural Sciences program.
Applicants should apply as soon as possible, but no later than 10/15/2013.
Rutgers is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and has a strong commitment to diversity. Women and members of underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to apply. Rutgers-Newark is noted for its exceptionally diverse student population.
