Durham, NC
Duke University, Durham, North Carolina. The Department of Psychology & Neuroscience at Duke University, http://pn.aas.duke.edu/ invites applications for an assistant (tenure-track) professor position in Developmental Psychology to begin Fall 2013.

We are seeking candidates whose interests in developmental psychology integrate approaches from psychology’s many sub-disciplines. The specific focus of candidates’ research interests is unrestricted, but examples might include social cognition, social neuroscience, social-cognitive determinants of motivation, decision-making, memory, and perception, all in a developmental context. We seek outstanding applicants with the potential to develop a nationally-recognized, externally-funded research program and motivation to engage in undergraduate and graduate teaching.

The Department of Psychology & Neuroscience is a department with training programs in cognitive psychology & cognitive neuroscience, clinical psychology, developmental psychology, social psychology, and systems and integrative neuroscience. The developmental training program is part of the Carolina Consortium on Human Development and has close ties with the Center for Developmental Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. These organizations link the strong community of developmental scholars across North Carolina and within the Research Triangle area. The department also has close ties with The Duke Institute for Brain Sciences (DIBS), which is a campus-wide interdisciplinary institute with a commitment to building an interactive community of brain science research and scholarship, and Duke University’s Social Science Research Institute (SSRI), which is a campus-wide interdisciplinary institute aimed at catalyzing research and methods across the social and behavioral sciences. The department is also strengthened by connections with The Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, which unifies research and teaching in cognitive and systems neuroscience, the Brain Imaging and Analysis Center, the Center for Child and Family Policy, and the Institute for Genome Sciences and Policy. All create excellent opportunities for interactions with faculty and students within Duke and across the wider developmental community.
