The Department of Biological Sciences in the College of Life Sciences and Agriculture (COLSA) at the University of New Hampshire invites applications for a tenure-track position as Assistant Professor of Neuroscience and Behavior. We seek applicants with lived experiences and/or professional service informed by worldviews and/or perspectives about minority group status including race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion, and disability, and who are committed to work in and foster a diverse faculty, staff, and student environment at UNH. The position is intended to support our research, teaching, and scholarship in neuroscience and behavior at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Our future faculty member will demonstrate the ability to incorporate their research to our areas of strength in pain, psychiatric disorders, addiction, sensory biology, perception, cognition, neurogenomics, and animal behavior. We are eager to interview applicants who focus on computational and theoretical approaches to model brain function and/or study mechanisms of neuronal function in non-classical model organisms (e.g., fruit fly, worm, lamprey, etc.). We prefer candidates who integrate “-omics” approaches to basic and/or disease-related mechanisms in these organisms. Although the primary appointment for this position is in the Department of Biological Sciences, the research is expected to synergize with investigators located in the Psychology, the Molecular, Cellular, and Biomedical Sciences, and the Communication Sciences and Disorders Departments. In addition, the candidate will provide vibrant, high-quality instruction to our undergraduate and graduate programs, including teaching foundational and advanced courses in biology, neuroscience, and behavior. The successful candidate will maintain a high-impact externally funded
