Career Opportunities


Please note: Indiana University now requires applications to be submitted through the electronic PeopleAdmin system.

Assistant Professor, Developmental Psychology:

The Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences at Indiana University - Bloomington seeks to fill a faculty position in developmental psychology at the rank of Assistant Professor (tenure-track), to begin August 2015. Applicants must have a doctorate, a strong record of publication, a program of research with the promise of significant and sustained contributions, and the potential for research funding. We aim to hire a researcher interested in understanding the history-dependent, multi-leveled, multi-causal nature of developmental processes. Research areas might include any of the following: language and communication, social, atypical, cognitive, vision, motor, and brain development, as well as environmental influences on developmental processes. Candidates with an integrated research program combining empirical research with cutting-edge computational, statistical and analytic techniques are strongly encouraged to apply. Candidates who fit the broader campus and departmental initiative in research using large-scale data and/or high-density data to reveal developmental processes are especially encouraged to apply. Teaching responsibilities will include courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels.

Interested candidates should review the application requirements and submit their applications at: http://indiana.peopleadmin.com/postings/1014

Questions regarding the position or application process can be directed to: Dr. William P. Hetrick, Ph.D., Professor and Chair, Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, whetrick [at] indiana.edu with Developmental Psychology Search in the subject line or via mail at: 1101 E. 10th Street, Bloomington IN, 47405.

Assitant Professor, Neural Circuits and Behavior:

The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Indiana University - Bloomington seeks to fill a faculty position at the level of Assistant Professor (tenure-track) to begin August 2015. Applicants for this position must have a doctorate, a strong record of publication, and the potential for research funding. The applicant's research should focus on using innovative experimental techniques in animal models to understand mechanisms and causal relationships between neural circuit activity and ethologically relevant behavior. We seek cutting-edge integration between new and emerging capabilities for large scale recording and/or manipulation of circuits combined with sophisticated analysis of large-scale data. Examples of behaviors of interest include those related to learning and memory, perception, decision making, reward, timing, pain, adaptation to stress, and developmental processes. Experimental techniques include various methods for recording and manipulating neural circuits at single-cell resolution, including multi-electrode recordings, imaging of circuit activity, and optogenetics. Candidates using circuit-based approaches to study preclinical models of schizophrenia, autism, and other difficult to treat psychiatric diseases are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate is expected to assemble a vibrant, externally-funded research program and to achieve excellence in both undergraduate and graduate education. Indiana University is in the midst of a multi-year initiative to build excellence in network science, and it is anticipated that the candidate's research will both benefit from, and contribute to the initiative's computational neuroscience components.

To apply, please include a curriculum vita, copies of representative publications, statements of research and teaching interests, and three (3) letters of recommendation.
