Thiel College is seeking a full-time tenure-track Assistant Professor of Neuroscience and future Director of the Neuroscience Program for Fall 2014. The successful candidate should possess a Ph.D. in Neuroscience with a Biology and/or Psychology emphasis. Successful undergraduate teaching experience is important. The individual would be responsible for teaching Introduction to Neuroscience, Neuropsychopharmacology, and Senior Seminar in Neuroscience and would also mentor senior student research projects required for the B.S. in Neuroscience. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of Neuroscience, the desire and ability to collaborate across disciplines is expected. In addition, the successful candidate will advise students, pursue a modest research program (inclusive of student/faculty research), engage in grant writing to support the program, and participate in Thiel’s core curriculum and/or honors program.
The Neuroscience Program is in the midst of a revitalization. The ideal applicant should also possess the skills and characteristics necessary to advance this program, including but not limited to interaction with Admissions and Marketing and Communications. The individual would also maintain and enhance interaction with the Greenville Neuromodulation Center in Greenville, a critical partner in the development and growth of the program.
Applicants should send a cover letter stating teaching and research interests, a current curriculum vitae or resume, official undergraduate and graduate transcripts, and three confidential letters of reference to: email@example.com (preferred) or to: Jennifer Clark, Associate Director of Human Resources, Thiel College, 75 College Avenue, Greenville, PA 16125.
