Cognitive Neuroscientist / Neuropsychologist


The Department of Psychology announces a three-year, non-tenure-track position at the assistant professor level to begin September 2010. The individual will be responsible for teaching introductory and advanced undergraduate courses in psychology and neuroscience (such as cognitive neuroscience), and possibly research methods. Although we will consider applicants from many areas of specialization within human neuroscience, it is desirable that the candidate contribute to an interdisciplinary program in cognitive science. We seek an individual with a commitment to teaching as well as an active research program that can engage bright undergraduates. Swarthmore is a small, highly selective liberal arts college, located in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Applicants should submit a letter describing their teaching and research interests, a current CV, reprints or preprints of recent work, and three letters of recommendation. Swarthmore College has a strong institutional commitment to excellence through diversity in its educational program and employment. The College actively seeks and welcomes applications from candidates with diverse backgrounds including those who have intercultural experience and those with demonstrable commitments to an inclusive society and world.  Consideration of candidates will begin in January. Inquiries and applications may be addressed to the Search Committee, Department of Psychology, Swarthmore College, 500 College Avenue, Swarthmore, PA 19081-1397. Email
